History

With a single minded focus Shri. Jaiprakash Gaur, Founder Chairman of Jaypee Group, after acquiring a Diploma in Civil Engineering in 1950 from the University of Roorkee now (IIT Roorkee), had a stint with Govt. of U.P. and with steadfast determination to contribute in nation building, branched off on his own, to start as a civil contractor in 1958,and laid the foundation of Jaypee Group. The Jaypee story is not a story of privilege or entitlement.
