Now Mr. Dharampal once again became unemployed. In the meantime, he thought of making spices in which he felt like and he thought of doing his work. He would buy dried spices from outside, grind them at home and sell them in the market. Slowly the work started growing. Because their honesty kept the quality of the spices. Now it became difficult to do the work of grinding the spices at home, then they started to get spices from the market, but the spice mills started mixing in their spices, which made Mr. Dharmapal very sad. Now he thought of setting up a spice grinding factory himself and started his first spice factory in Kirtinagar, Delhi. After that, he did not look back. And MDH became a brand and Mr. Dharampal is his identity today
