The SNM Group was first established by the late Surendra Nath Mohanty as a mining farm in the 1980s. The mining unit staff of SNM quickly expanded into a broad-based economic conglomerate. The company now conducts business in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, power generation, infrastructure construction, and solar energy generation.
