He successfully created new identity of company with extended product line and transformed NFL from a single product company to an organization with stakes in various types of fertilizers, seeds, agro-chemicals and Industrial products.

As a results of his Vision and its successful implementation, NFL is delivering best-ever production performance, highest-ever sales, highest-ever turnover and best-ever profits continuously for the previous four years. The sale of the company jumped from less than 3.7 million MT (2015-16) to 4.9 million MT (2018-19), translating into an increase of 33% in three years. This can be credited to his initiative for increasing the share of non-urea products in the portfolio from 1% (2014-15) to 22% (2018-19) resulting in addition of INR 27 billion to the total turnover of NFL in 2018-19.
