Ramesh Meena whom his friends call Ram was born in a remote village of Rajasthan in a poor household. When he was barely 17 years old, his father met with a mine accident and was paralyzed and confined to bed for the rest of his life. Having lost the sole bread-earner of the family and faced with a highly precarious financial condition, Ram had to drop out from his school and start earning to support his family. Having initially starting working as a blue-collar worker in various capacities, he worked for a few travel and tour companies as a driver with a meager monthly salary for about 4 years.

  When he was working for his last employer, he met , an American civil rights lawyer during her tour to north India with her family in the winter of 2008. Before meeting Ram American family had quite a frustrating experience with the other drivers of that company.

Ram greeted her and the family with flowers in the morning and gave them a ride in the in one of the western states of India and the family started enjoying their trip. As a result of her interaction with Ram and the highly professional services received from him, she was so impressed with him and suggested him that Ram should start his own company.

  With a small amount received from family which she gave it to him generously as tips for his services along with lone received from a financial agency as well as borrowed money from some friends, and a strong motivation from the family , Ram finally started his own company, namely, India by Car and Driver with only one small car of his own. e initially drove the car himself for more than a year. During this period he was able to pay most of the mortgage of the car and save a littile bit of money to by one big car with a decent amount of lone from a bank. With a positive feedback from his clients, most of whom being the Western customers, he was able to get more and more business and now within the third year of starting his own company since January 2009, Ram owns 8 cars which include three small cars to cater to the budget travelers and five SUVies to cater to the needs of those who travel with the family and can afford to spend little more than a budget traveler.

 

Ram attributes the success of his business to his sincerity, honesty and professionalism, the traits which he expects his drivers to possess as well. In addition to these traits, Ram gives the greatest credit for his success in the business to several of his clients whom he served and who took the pain to take out time and document a positive feedback about his services. Several of the past recipients of his services even agreed to interact with his prospective clients and answer questions about the services of India by Car and Driver. Some even made the videos of their trip and agreed to share their pleasant experience with others by upload their videos on the net. One of such recently uploaded video can view by clicking here:

Well, what can I say. I have been to India several times, but it was the first time booking a tour company such as this for our visit to Rajasthan. Naturally, I shopped around to see what options were available. Having exchanged many emails with Ramesh Meena, he was always accommodating and quick to respond to any queries I had.... More

We couldn't have found a better company to provide a car and driver for our 12 day trip from Delhi, into Rajasthan and dropping us in Agra. Having read the reviews and exchanged some emails with Ramesh we settled on IBCD. They were professional in every way, accommodating my trip itinerary, and my request for guides in 3 of our... More

I found this company on a Google search of local travel agents in India. I had a similar trip with a good outcome in Myanmar in September 2016 by searching online. Their website was the best and easiest to navigate. They advertise sample itineraries and are amenable to chop and change for destination cities and class of internal flights. They... More

Our excellent driver Raju drove us for 10 days on a jam packed itinerary through Rajasthan. Raju was very accommodating with the timings that we wanted, driving very safely all the time. Raju also gave us great tips, taking us to delicious restaurants on our journey. He is very trustworthy and we would 100% recommend him and India by Car... More

If only we had Raj for the whole trip I would have given the excellent score. Unfortunately on returning to Delhi we were allocated a different driver who we found difficult to understand. I assume he could not understand us either because he seemed determined to take us to a monument and his choice of shop rather than take us... More

My group of friends had a great experience with this service. Excellent driver (Dayaram, we loved you!) and the vehicle was clean, comfortable and safe. The reservations were easy, accurate and the central office was helpful. I will use them again.

We hired India By Car and Driver for a 3 week tour of India and Nepal. While they are based in Jaipur, we were able to meet our driver in Lucknow. From there, we traveled to Limbini in Nepal, Kushingar, Varanasi, and Bodhgaya. We traveled in a very nice 10 passenger van with leather seats, AC, and wifi. This worked... More

I honestly couldn't have asked for a more fantastic driver to safely see me through my Rajasthani adventure than Santosh, and I couldn't recommend India by Car and Driver – including its incredibly helpful and responsive proprietor, Ramesh – more highly! The whole operation unquestionably deserves five stars all-around. Santosh is one of those wonderful drivers who's capable of driving... More
