Shri N. Sugalchand Jain hailing from Siyat village Sojat Road in the Pali District of Rajasthan has settled down in Tamil Nadu for the past six decades. Having worked as an apprentice under his father, Shri Sugalchand Jain took to business as a duck takes to water and has not looked back since. Either individually or in association with his partners Shri Jain has started and developed a number of ventures and made them profitable. Having developed these ventures into successful ones within a very short time Shri Jain turned his attention to diverting a part of profits earned from these ventures for serving the weaker sections of the community.
Contrary to the popular view that the average member of the Marvari community confines his attention mostly to business, Shri Jain has devoted a good portion of his time and resources to serve the public at large both in Chennai and in major cities of India including his native town of Siyat in Rajasthan. His contribution in the field of social service can be broadly described as under:

1. A very important contribution which Shri Jain has made is in establishing Bhagwan Mahaveer Foundation for identifying, nurturing and encouraging individuals and institutions who are engaged in serving their fellowmen without any expectation of rewards. So far 47 awards have been given away by the foundation for service of high standard in the field of Non-violence & vegetarianism, Education & Medicine, and community & social service. Since inception the value of the award valued 2.95 crores. Till recently, Mahaveer Award is the highest award given away by an NGO. The awardees are decided by an eminent selection Jury headed by Justice Shri M. N. Venkatachaliah, Former Chief Justice of India..

The total no. of beneficiaries in in-house camps at Singhvi Diagnostic Center 403784. Needless to add, that all these services are provided by the Singhvi Charitable Trust entirely free of cost. 

3. The group of companies of which Shri Jain is major partner has been providing financial assistance to individuals and institutions rendering service to the members of the poorer sections of the community. The assistance was provided to such institutions and individuals all over the country. The institutions include the Cancer Institute & Sankara Nethralaya at Chennai, the Dharmishila Cancer Hospital, New Delhi, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Mumbai, Institute of Kidney Diseases & Research Centre at Ahmedabad and Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Samithi, Jaipur. The assistance thus made available to various institutions engaged in serving the community during the past few years is in excess of Rs. 10 Crores. More recently he has embarked on a project to provide shelter to the patients of the cancer institute who gather in the earlier hours of the day before entering the hospital.
