In 1929, Mr. Mehtab Uddin Hashmi founded The Hashmi Dawakhana in India. Since its inception it has been a reflection of customer requirements. With an objective to become one roof solution for all health Care. He had a mission, to make quality phytopharmaceuticals available to the public in standardized packages. A hand operated tablet punching machine was an important part of the company then. Several cranks with the hand were needed to process herbal mixtures into single pills. History of the company spells the triumph of burning desire, courage to face the entire hardihood en route turning dreams into a reality and a lot of spadework, of course. Hashmi, the brain-child of a group of experienced medical practitioners is based on a thorough understanding of the medical needs of people around the globe. Their unfailing zeal to alleviate the plight of the underprivileged and suffering community remains the inspiration behind the entire effort.
