Jagdish's family's financial situation was precarious; his father was a farmer, and he was the youngest son in a large family. He left the hamlet at the age of 14 to work as a child labourer, first in Mumbai and later in Udaipur, doing odd jobs while pursuing his studies.

 

 

At the age of just 17, he was recruited as a laborer in the Udaipur Cement Factory located in Dabok, Mavli Tehsil of Udaipur district, and then he joined labor organization INTAK, seeing the problems of the laborers.

Two and a half thousand laborers had gone unemployed, in such circumstances nothing could be known as to what would happen in the future. However, after long efforts and a rightful fight, the factory was finally restarted. The first plant was commissioned at a cost of 8.5 crores and production has started in the second unit for 16.5 crores. Giving credit for this to his adorable Goddess, Shrimali said that he used to pray to Goddess for a long time to start this factory, so that the laborers who lost their jobs due to its closure, could get it back. He says that his prayer was accepted after 12 years and this is the first factory in the whole of India, which has been restarted once again after closure and all the unemployed laborers got employment once again. He considers it the biggest achievement of his life.

 

according to Shrimali, During the years when this cement factory was lying closed, he used to get employment applications from many people from Mavli.

While being the director of Syndicate Bank, he opened many branches of the bank not only in Udaipur but also in Rajasthan and established the regional office of the bank in Udaipur.
