Where It All Began: Uncovering the Crucial Moments that Set the Foundation for Our Company

Between the late 1980s and early 1990s, Pune was emerging as a hotbed for early startups and technology companies. It was during this time that KPIT was incorporated to seize the opportunities at hand and jump into the technology sector head-first.


We continued to grow our partnership in 2022. This happened with SOMIT Solutions and Technica Engg joining the KPIT family to strengthen KPIT’s Guided Diagnostics platform and accelerate transformation towards Software Defined Vehicles respectively.

Unveiling the Layers of Our Narrative: Delving Deeper into the Intricacies of Our Growth Story

Our story starts all the way back in the mid-1950s when late Shri B R Pandit founded Kirtane and Pandit Chartered Accountants.

Starting initially as Kirtane and Pandit Information Technology, a division of Kirtane and Pandit, the company later became K&P Information Technology Pvt Ltd which finally morphed into KPIT Infosystems Limited.

The partners of Kirtane and Pandit, Mr. Ravi Pandit who became a partner in 1976 and Mr. Kishor Patil, a Chartered Account and Cost accountant, who became a partner in early 1983, cofounded KPIT and continue to the lead the vision and global impact KPIT is bringing about. In 1987, Mr. Shirish Patwardhan, BTech and MTech from IIT Mumbai joined KPIT.
