Please help me understand calories in 100g Jiraporn pumpkin chips. According to the package its 430 calories per 40 which does not make sens?

Nutritional info on packages can be incorrect. If it is correct that there are 430 calories per serving, then a serving would be 50g, not 40g (for a 100g bag). We can't know what's correct. Look at the ingredient list. Pumpkin itself is low in calories (about 26 cals/100g of raw) so the calories in the chips would come from oil and any other additives.
Fat has 9 cal/gram so see what the total fat grams for the bag is and that'll give you an idea (if that info is correct).

You are correct - it is not possible for 40 grams of anything to have 430 calories. Even if it were all fat, 40 grams would only be 360 calories. If it does not have a Nutrition Facts Label, I don't think you should eat it.
