In Memoriam: Keshub Mahindra (1923-2023)

The CASI & UPIASI community sadly announces the passing of Keshub Mahindra, Wharton'47, Chairman Emeritus, Mahindra & Mahindra, Former President of the UPIASI Governing Council (1995-2011), and Honorary CASI IAB member. A renowned industry leader and philanthropist, his vision guided UPIASI's setting up and functioning for over 15 years.

“I had the great privilege of coming to know Keshub Mahindra over the 30 years of my association with CASI and UPIASI. Both institutions owe their beginnings and success to Keshub’s vision, counsel, and support. He was a model of wise leadership and integrity who cared most for India’s future and will be sorely missed.” -Marshall M. Bouton (CASI Senior Fellow; Acting Director & Visiting Scholar, 2018-20; IAB Chairman, 2004-12)
