RB was driven by a very focused and strong team, who soon launched its operation in various locations of Southern India. Fast forward to 2017, RB defined itself exceptionally socially by picking up the most sensitive topic in the industry – speed limits for the youth.
Challenges Royal Brothers Faced

Just when they didn’t understand how to get the business up and running, came the shining light in their dark tunnel, an IAS officer from Andhra Region. The officer helped RB heavily as he was quite impressed with the business idea. However, with utmost commitment and patience, the path seemed clearer and journey went on.
