His childhood was very challenging and difficult. He is born to uneducated parents who worked as farm workers. They do not have their own farm land. He has two brothers and one sister. His father's frugal income could barely buy them daily food. He and his other family members including parents had to spend their days with meal for just one time in a day. They could not afford three times meal. Because of this financial conditions, his parents could not support him further schooling after 7th class of school. But Tukaram determined to continue education at any cost.

So he searched for new opportunities and acquired a position as Senior Faculty at LCC Infotech Limited. While working with LCC he upgraded his knowledge in new technologies such as Visual Studio, Java, PHP & Animation.
In the year 2000, the entire IT industry was affected due to attack on twin tower in America. This forced LCC Infotech to close it's operations in Mumbai. So again he became jobless along with other employees of the organization.
The year 2000 was very critical in his career. It was difficult to find a job in Information Technology, so he started working as a accountant with The Camouflage & Camouglage Fashions. While still working with The Camouflage he ventured into a part time training business and decided to set up his own venture - Abhijit Infotech.
The market was tough, competition was very high and survival was very difficult. In the same year he was blessed with another son, Pratim. Now there was more pressure of business, demand for more income grew, and there was increase in responsibilities. So, he decided to quit accountants job and concentrate fully on growing and, enhancing developing his business.

He passed CPT and was ready for become a Chartenred Accountant, but when he studied that it takes four and half years to complete Chartered Accountants course and he needs to work for a stipend of Rs.800/- which was not even sufficient to cover his travel expenses, he decided to quit for want of money and lack of free time for the completion of articleship which is the essential part of CA course.
