Mumbai: The MDH spices owner Dharampal Gulati has passed away on Thursday morning. He was 97.

According to reports, Gulati was undergoing treatment at a hospital in Delhi for the last three weeks. He suffered a cardiac arrest and breathed his last at 5:30 am today.

Fondly called ‘dalaji’ and ‘Mahashayji’, Gulati was born in 1923 in Sialkot, Pakistan. A school dropout, Dharampal Gulati joined his father’s spice business in the early days.

After partition in 1947, he moved to India and stayed at a refugee camp in Amritsar. He then moved to Delhi and opened a store in Delhi’s Karol Bagh.

Gulati formally established the company in 1959. The business did not just flourish in India only but Gulati became a distributor and exporter as well. His company exports Indian spices to various parts of the world including the UK, Europe, UAE, Canda, etc.

In 2019, the government honoured him with Padma Bhushan, the third-highest civilian award in the country.

Gulati donated nearly 90 per cent of his salary to charity.
