Born in a traditional Marwari family on June 18, 1946, Morarka was also a famous industrialist. He was the chairman of Morarka Organic.
He served as a union minister in the Chandra Shekhar government in 1990-91 and a former Rajya Sabha MP from Rajasthan from JD(S) between 1988 and 1994. He was promoted as head of the Samajwadi Janata Party (Rashtriya) in 2012.

Indian Express Executive Director Anant Goenka expressed his condolence at the death of Morarka.
Extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Shri Kamal Morarka. Priviledged to have known a man like him… he lived by example, with fine old Indian values and an ever-young, curious mind. India will miss his warmth.
