Chandrashekar Kapse: Actually I was studying Chartered Accountancy and we were into financial consultancy, providing financial guidance for getting loans from financial institutions. A plot layout owner had approached us with his client for financial loan from bank for selling his layout. We asked him to show his layout. When we saw his layout it struck to us that a colony could be constructed on that piece of land. We offered the layout owner to build a colony on that land and to release each plot at a time. We started building Duplex on each of plot released by the owner and rest is history.
In our first scheme itself we built around 140 Duplexes, without any prior experience. By sheer hard work and overwhelming response to the project, all the 140 duplexes on Kamptee road were booked in just an year.
