In 1920, G.D.Naidu then met British businessman and philanthropist, Sir Robert
Stanes and he got his friendship. Stanes encouraged G.D.Naidu to start a new
business and he gave a sum of four thousand rupees. G.D.Naidu got a loan of
another four thousand rupees and he bought a passenger auto-coach. He himself
drove it between Pollachi and Palani (both are Southern Tamil Nadu towns).
G.D.Naidu named his Bus service as U.M.S (Universal Motor Service) service and
this service is offered in with the mind of People's goodness. When any bus got
troubled, G.D.Naidu sends another vehicle to repair that as soon as possible. This
has created a very good name around the Coimbatore people. U.M.S. Bus service
