Once an undercover agent, this ex-cop now runs his own construction company

Debasish Sarkar – MD, Fasthelp Pvt Ltd.

Established in 2018, with a capital investment of 1 lac, Fasthelp Pvt Ltd started its journey with a mission to provide professional services in construction domain at affordable rates and efficient manner. Fasthelp provides building construction services, residential & commercial painting services, renovation services, along with plumbing works, electronic repairs, home appliance servicing and other handyman jobs. Debasish Sarkar, the founder of Fasthelp, started his journey as freelance contractor before venturing into his own. But even before getting into the construction space, Debasish had an interesting job profile – he worked as an undercover agent in West Bengal Police departments and was involved with cybercrime department and CID-WB.

Fasthelp is just a call away and can serve you with the best handyman job in town. They undertake residential handyman services that can help save time from the first phone call through project completion. They also help in prioritizing major and minor home repairs and multi-tasking work. The employees would arrive in nationally-recognized uniforms and logo vans that are stocked with every tool they’ll need. One would not have to interrupt their day, wasting valuable time waiting. Available 24/7, they always complete their work in time without any complaints.

At the age of 32, Debasish has been doing great work in construction and civil works. Besides having bureaucrats like IAS, IPS and doctors as his clients, he has successfully completed projects in Delhi and Gurgaon, besides Kolkata being his home ground. He proudly announces his feat and tells us,

“Around 48 home construction works have been done by us in 4 yrs. 116 interior work done across commercial and residential projects and 23 renovation work done in Kolkata only. On JustDial my 118 clients gave me 5 star rating, as because they are fully satisfied with my service. I have huge manpower and expert engineer that’s why we are best.”

Being from a well to do, erudite family, Debasish studied civil works and hence wanted to make a future out of it. Today through Fasthelp he is not only serving his prestigious clients but also providing huge employment opportunities to a section of the society – fitter, carpenter, plumber, painter, electrician, mechanics and other ITI graduates can fetch jobs in his firm that’s growing leaps and bounds in last 3-4 years.

The secret of Debasish’s venture lies in his humble approach towards his business. Unlike other who are money minded, he focuses on providing quality products to his clients. He ensures that branded products and raw materials such as Jaguars, Kajaria Tiles, Italian Marble, Sagon Wood, Ambuja, Ultratech Cement, Tata Steel etc are used in his construction. That provides a huge equity among his customers. Fasthelp is into construction of temple, schools, old age homes, hospitals, etc and by 2022 they would get into highways and bridges.

Debasish draws inspiration from his father, Shri Deba Prasad Sarkar, retired senior engineer of Indian Railways, who has always been his support and never forced into things which he disliked. DIG Ajay Kumar Thakur, CID-WB Police, also encouraged him a lot in his venture. Debasish also eyes on the “Pritzker Architecture Prize” – the ultimate in construction civil work and has been on his list, which he is aspiring to strive for it. Being a graduate in civil works, he always wanted to work in this line and finally when he got a chance he jumped in this entrepreneurial expedition. Post his mother’s demise, he also wanted to build a hospital and school in her memory and is working towards the same.

2021 has been a great year for Fasthelp. Being recipient of some prestigious awards such as “Best Architecture & Construction Company” from Brand Opus India, “Businessman of the Year” from Global Choice Awards, “Icon of The Year” from International Icon Awards, “Leading Businessman of the Year” from Gtown, “Architect of the Year” from India Design Awards, have really pumped up this young entrepreneur who is now raring to go and expand. Our best wishes are with him.
