Atur Mehta (or Aatur), who, like his father, is an Indian businessman, investor, and entrepreneur based in Mumbai, India. Although he is most well known for being the son of the man who was the mastermind behind the 1992 Indian securities scam, Atur himself, as a master stockbroker, prefers to live a life away from the public eye.
In fact, because Atur is not on any social media platform and keeps his head low, there is no concrete data on him available anywhere – no one even knows exactly when he was born or how old he was when his father died of a sudden heart attack in 2001. Atur doesn’t give interviews, refuses to make public appearances, and prefers to have his face unknown, just trying to move on from his past.
According to a report by Business Standard, Atur Mehta bought a 23% stake, quite significant, in Fair Deal Filaments, a Bombay Stock Exchange-listed textile company, his apparent favorite area for investment. “The board of directors of the company has accorded its approval to…enter into an agreement to be executed by the company, the promoters of the company with Aatur Harshad Mehta and Sanalkumar Kizhepata Menon for the purchase of 1.45 million equity shares each,” Fair Deal Filaments announced in 2018.
Along with that, various articles state that Atur, a graduate of a private school, has also set up his own business in the city, but what he does, or the field he is in, no one knows. Because of the common name, people started associating Harshad Mehta’s son with Atur Mehta who is the Co-Founder and CTO of a company called Square Off, which is based in Mumbai as well.
