It’s virtually unknown in the consumer lighting market. But NTL, the ₹700-crore company Arun Gupta created with his brother Praveen, can safely claim to be at the heart of most fluorescent tubes and CFL lamps made in India, a position it holds as the largest maker of electronic drivers and ballasts that run modern lights.
