He developed 5 to 10 steam distillation units in his own village those we reutilized for extracting the oils from the plants of Palmarosa, Jamarosa, Lemongrass, and Mints. Later he established his own essential oil industry in Bareilly District, 60 kms away from his Village. He started this industry by the name of ‘Aromatic and Allied Chemicals’ in 1977. After that he never looked back and his industry kept on rising. Starting from manual industry, now this industry is fully automatic with well established fractionation columns,distillation columns, pilot plants, well trained engineered staff and modern scientific instruments.
