My father started in real estate and I entered this field on his recommendation. It didn’t take any research or a scientific degree. I got into real estate and started learning on the job. I believe in working with a purpose, where you solve a big societal problem, and I think real estate is an important business in that sense. This may include the creation of housing or commercial infrastructure or the development of the Slum Upgrading Authority (SRA). There are so many problems that you solve through real estate, becoming part of the solution for society. I think any real estate project you undertake, even an SRA project, where we provide free housing to slum dwellers, makes you part of the solution for our society rather than a problem.

My first project, ‘Gangadham’ or even our latest, ‘Gangadham Towers’, was initially a barren land with no access. But today you see this place has become a well-developed place with thousands of people loving to live there. I can give you many such examples in Pune, Mumbai, Nagpur and Bangalore. In Nagpur, I took charge of redevelopment projects with over 300 tenants. If you look at this project today, all tenants are rehabilitated, the metro line is connected and it is one of the biggest commercial projects in Vidarbha (Central India).
