Balvinder Sahni has won the “Businessman of The Year” award at the 10th edition of the Sikh Awards held in Dubai by the Sikh Group on February 25, 2020.
When compared to his awards and honours, his charity work is quite more prominent. He is extremely attached to his parents and even built memorials for them when they passed away. In 2004, when his father Amrik Singh passed away, Balvinder built an enormous old age home in Pingalwara in Punjab’s Amritsar district in India, in his memory. In the later years, when his mother Harbans Kaur Sahni, passed away in 2007, he commemorated her memory by building a hospital that specialized in Tuberculosis, in Pingalwara for both men and women. It was completed in 2013, then Mr. Sahni decided to build India’s biggest hospital for the deaf and the dumb in the same place.
He even took part in the fund-raising gala dinner in 2015 for ‘Al Jalila Foundation’ which was headed by Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein for the cause of medical research. There, Sheikh Zayed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s Dubai distinguished vehicle number plate code O number 9, was picked up for $6.8 million (Dh25 million). Later in 2016, RTA (Regional Transport Authority), hosted another auction for which Balvinder Sahni reached headlines because he decided to buy the D5 plate number in Auction for his Rolls-Royce car, one of six car collections. Despite the fact that all the money that is raised i.e. $9 million (Dh33 million) at the RTA auction goes to charity and infrastructure, Mr. Sahni received an uproar on the internet questioning why he would pay such a high amount for a mere number plate.
Recently too, he bought a mobile number (058-888888) for Dh4.5m at an auction held at Grand Hyatt Dubai Convention Centre. In response to the question on why he bought such an expensive number, he simply stated that the number is of more importance to him than the price. He also graciously mentioned that he’d be willing to stop at nothing if it meant that his money would go to charity.
He stated that “The Vice President Du, Mr. Ahmed Aburahima called me and told me that all the money collected from this Auction will be going to charity as this is a semi-government company.”
Even if the number is technically unusable, he still bought it. It is known that within 2 hours of buying the number, he received over 1000 calls and that is the reason why he keeps that number turned off most of the time.
As has been previously mentioned, Balvinder Sahni looks up to Sheikh Mohammed. He has even announced that to participate in Sheikh Mohammed’s vision for Dubai, his company RSG will announce their biggest project, a Dh1.4 billion investment on Sheikh Zayed Road.
