Later he became a student of Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. Under the tutelage of both, he enriched his repertoire in both classical and semi-classical music. He had tremendous control over both melody (sur) as well as rhythm (lai).
He was associated with ITC Sangeet Research Academy, and later on he became a lecturer at the Khairagarh University in Madhya Pradesh. He is a Top grade radio artist.
He has performed in all the major conferences held all over the country and has also toured abroad in countries like US, Canada, UK and several parts of Europe.
His legacy is being carried on by his sons like Samrat Pandit who launched his solo career in 2001 and shared Jagdish Prasad's music in prestigious halls.
