His idea of an independent India led him to establish the Uttar Pradesh Chamber of Commerce. This later laid the foundation for the mighty ‘J.K.’ Enterprises, which is a symbol of modern India. Sir Padmapat, the son of Shri Kamlapatji, was born in the year 1905. It was his passion for all things new, that led to the establishment of various educational centres, medical and religious institutes.
