The DM Group, formerly known as the Mantri Group, was founded by Late Mr. Govind Prasad Mantri in 1948. Starting off from activities of jute trading, the group diversified into the cultivation and production of tea with the acquisition of the group┐s first tea estate in 1954. Subsequently, the group has expanded substantially not only in the tea industry, but has also created a presence for itself in the auto components manufacturing business, after its foray into the engineering industry in 1978.
Presently, the DM Group is a multi-divisional conglomerate with interests in Tea, Engineering, Marketing Services and Financial Services. Head-quartered in Kolkata, West Bengal, it has operations in Assam, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, and Maharashtra. All of the four tea estates of the group are located in Assam. Also, the group has four manufacturing facilities producing a host of automobile components, along with other product lines.

Private Limited, Ruttonpore Plantations Private Limited, Derby Plantations Private Limited, Mantri Tea Company Private Limited, Vijayshree Industries Private Limited, Suprabha Industries Limited, Mantri Engineering Company Private Limited, and Mantri Udyog Limited.
