Veena Patil was Managing Director at Kesari Tours for seven years prior to starting Veena World under the company Veena Patil Hospitality. She wants to replicate the success in her new company. 35 staff of Kesari have followed her into the new company.

Patil said: “Kesari Tours transformed from family owned company to a professionally managed company in the last seven years as it tripled its turnover to $ 125 mn (Rs 750 crore). Our target is to achieve 100,000 tourists and a turnover of $ 84 mn (Rs 500+ crore) in three years time. It’s a feasible target with our experience and available technology.” The new travel Company with an initial investment of $ 2.5 mn (15 crore) has an immediate target of 12,000 tourists and a turnover of $ 10.88 mn (Rs 65 crore) for current financial year-Veena World's management team-Veena, Sudhir, Neil, Himanshu and Sunila Patilend and 50,000 tourists and $ 41.86 mn (Rs 250 crore) for next year.

The company handles travel under group, special interest, tailor-made and corporate segments. It aims to entice most citizens of 115mn in the state to travel.

Patil said: “Home state Maharashtra is our forte. Only half of the state’s population has travelled so far. Our vision is to bring the other half into the bracket while continuing to cater to others. Idea is to extend the pleasure of travel to those who haven’t yet experienced it. We plan to do this by providing affordable travel services without resorting to price war or undercutting.”

Veena world has a staff of 50 and another 45 tour leaders. Its tailor made tours are already being planned and the first group tour is scheduled for end of August.
