SRK Knowledge Foundation (SRKKF) is a culmination of the evolution journey embarked in 1964 upon by its Founder Chairman Shri Govind Dholakia.

As a brilliant mover, navigator, effective leader, and entrepreneurial conductor, the Chairman has initiated SRKKF for orchestrating a Grand Tomorrow, Grand India. His focused, resilient, visionary, passionate, innovative approach and his belief in ‘Giving back to the Society’ is an inspiration behind SRKKF.

SRKKF was introduced as a gift to Shri Govind Dholakia on 8th April 2014 by the young generation of family members on the occasion of ‘50 years of Integrity’ event of SRK. The idea derived major impetus during the meeting of Lord Bhikhu Parekh and Dr. Sudha Murthy at Surat on 8th of February 2015.  Read More

SantokBaa Award

SRK Knowledge Foundation has dedicated itself to the cause of humanity, mainly in the fields of health, education and upliftment of the needy. In accord with this vision, Shri Govindbhai instituted the Santokbaa Award in the year 2006, in the affectionate memory and honor of his mother Santokbaa. Her selfless devotion and humanitarian values inspired him to further her mission by honoring altruists from various fields. In fact, the trophy of this special award is designed along her ideals – aspiration of rising from the soil, positivity, care, love, appreciation and collective growth. These core values are global and shared by all human beings.

The foremost objective of Santokbaa Award is to positively impact the society, permeate powerful values and encourage the youth into spreading compassion and competitive ideologies. It is awarded to those individuals whose life and work are characterized by their selfless service which inspires millions of lives and the society at large.  Read More

  • I had heard about Honourable Shri Govindbhai Dholakia and had read about him in gujarati magazine ‘Chitralekha’, however, now that I met him in person at SRK office, Surat, I must admit that even an ordinary man can create extraordinary things. This is not just a factory to process diamonds but a temple functioning with human emotions. I extend my best wishes to Shri Govind kaka and his family; he may continue to serve the society in fulfilment of the objective of social responsibility.

  • Govindbhai has not only earned money but has wisely used it. “It’s easy to make money but to give it away is not that easy and what this man (Govindbhai) has done is to show how one could do both.” For earning enormously, I congratulate you but for your philanthropy I salute you.

  • I am happy that SRK family has tried to spread the message of Matrushri Santokbaa by giving away Santokbaa award. SRK is not only the manufacturer of beautiful diamonds but also the culture which has gone beyond it. It is great that employees here are considered and treated as their families.

  • My salutation to Santokbaa and wished that this task which is being done in memory of a mother would grow and develop perfectly.

  • If Surat is the diamond capital of India, Shree Ramkrishna Exports can be called the jewel of the diamond industry in India. The vision and mission of Mr. Govind Dholakia and his able team are aptly summarized in the words- Diamonds beyond imagination. Values beyond expectation. Shree Dholakia is not just a successful businessman but he is a man with big heart as well. Full of compassion and humility. How else can one describe him, who finds the time and energy besides the will to spend large sums of his wealth for charitable purposes. I am very happy to know that SRK Exports under the visionary leadership of Mr. Govind Dholakia has set up several trusts for education, medical, social and welfare purposes. I am also very happy to know that SRK Exports has spread it’s wings to many countries like the U.S.A, Belgium, Dubai and as well besides cities like Surat and Mumbai. I would like to thank Shri Govindbhai Dholakia and the other trustees of SRK Welfare Trust for considering me worthy to receive the Santokbaa Manavratna National Excellence Award.

  • I realized how a person with a dream and a person with determination can build not just a business in Surat but a global business with humility rather than arrogance. I am privileged to have been given the honour or sharing what you have done. And on behalf of India as a country and citizens of India, I would recognize which you have done and say, I wish there were thousands and thousands of people who shared your ideas. Thank you Sir, for what you have done for the country, what you have done for the industry that you established and the new friendship we have forged today.
