A major part of his fortune is made across the borders through Singapore based CINNOVATION (the holding company of Cigen Corporation), by being a minority shareholder of Tata Groups’ Taj Hotel Resorts and Palaces in India, purchasing ST Telecom, a rural telecom operator, and other real estate businesses all over the globe like Hotels in Rwanda, Uganda, and Burundi.

CG’s most popular product in Nepal and the reason for it’s primary rise to fame is a product called “Wai Wai”, a brand of noodles. Wai Wai is, originally, a Thai brand.
