Under the guidance of our founder, the organization grew and flourished pretty quickly and extensively. The reins of the business were handed over to Mr. Ram Kishan Chawla in 1962. The legacy of the founding-father was carried ahead proudly and successfully by the 2nd generation. A wide distribution network was setup in almost every part of the country during these years.
