Tell us about your educational and professional background. What has inspired you to join the real estate business and what keeps you going till today?
I passed B.Com in 1990, studied law and acquired my LLB degree. After that, I came into the construction business and worked in a company for seven years. After leaving that job, I started my own business in real estate in 2001.Since then, Ashar has been delivering all the projects successfully.

Right from the very beginning, real estate sector was the one which attracted me the most. Seeing people content and living their life in these infrastructures fascinated me to work more on my dreams and that is how I drew inspiration from the real estate sector. Today we are creating buildings and infrastructures that outlive generations and that are long lasting in nature. With this vision, we are working towards a creation that brings fulfilment to life and dreams of people be it education, retail, IT Parks, residential or commercial. At the end of the day, watching a family happy at Ashar’s project is what makes me and everyone at Ashar Group feeling accomplished.

How has your company’s journey been so far and what strategy has the company observed to maintain its position in the market?
We have a very clear policy. Whenever we acquire a plot, we don’t start the work without putting all the provisions in place. We make sure that the financial closure is done before the work is started. We take permissions from the relevant authorities and pay all kinds of premiums at the beginning of a project so that it does not face any
hiccups due to any change of law. These are some hard decisions that are taken before the start of any project so that we can deliver it as per our committed timelines. Hence, we keep our fundamentals strong which helps us in providing timely possession to our customers.
