The succession torch was successfully carried on by his son, Lt. Shri Basant Kumar Birla. In the year 1943 was born Aditya Vikram Birla, the man behind the Birla Empire. It was A.V. Birla who made the Birla group everywhere. In the words of A.V. Birla-
?Density beckons that we do something that we continue to create not just for our country, but globally. Not just for Today but for Posterity as well.?

Very early in his carrier, long before the word Globalization came into or everyday lexicon, he had foreseen the winds of change and staked the future of his business on a competitive, free market driven economic order. At a time when India's economy was glued with bureaucracy and taped with controls, his was a rather lone voice. But it was a voice that not only spoke, but also acted decisively and with conviction. A.V. Birla (as he was popularly known) translated his words into outstanding accomplishment. He thrived on challenges and possessed a great vision. His perseverance enabled him to c succeed against all odds. His numerous qualities inspired those who were associated with him. He always believed in team work. He died on 1st October 1995 leaving behind the Birla Empire. Kumar Mangalam Birla, son of Lt. Shri A.V. Birla, took over the charges as the chairman of the group. Thirty years old Kumar Mangalam, a C.A. and an M.B.A from Harvard University, is the chairman of the Aditya Birla Group which includes a number of companies within and outside the country.
