With a reputable name in the northern part of India, he attracted numerous family members and businessmen seeking iron and steel products in Mumbai. His ventures expanded to include railway auctions, commission agent services for buyers from Mandi Gobindgarh, and partnerships for recycling contracts for railways and ships.
