New Delhi: The owner of MDH Masala, Dharampal Gulati passed away on Thursday morning. He was 97.

Reportedly, Gulati was undergoing treatment at a hospital in Delhi for the last three weeks and suffered a cardiac arrest on Thursday morning.

Fondly called ‘dadaji’ and ‘Mahashayji’, Dharampal 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 and officially established the company in 1959.

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

According to MDH Masala, Dharampal Gulati donated nearly 90 per cent of his salary to charity.
