History
In 1976, during lunch time at Delhi Cloth Mills, DCM, a group of six young engineers in the office canteen were discussing their work woes at DCM's calculator division. Despite them all have having jobs that paid them well, they were an unhappy lot -they wanted to do more, riding on their own gumption. They decided to quit their jobs and start a venture of their own. The man who was fuelling the ambitions of his five other colleagues at that canteen was a 30-year-old engineer from Tamil Nadu, Shiv Nadar. And this is how the story of Hindustan Computers Limited, HCL began. Nadar and his five colleagues quit DCM in the summer of 1976. They decided to set up a company that would make personal computers. They had gathered enough technical expertise at DCM's calculator division, but like for all start-ups, getting funds was the problem. . He floated a company called Microcomp Limited -- through which he would sell teledigital calculators Finally, the founders put together Rs 20 lakh (Rs 2 million) and HCL was born.
