Apna Ashiana

Vol 17 | No. 64 | April - June 2019


From the Desk of the Jt. MD


Dear Friends,
Jashn 5 is over but the memory of the event still brings a smile to my face! My thanks to all the customers and employees who were a part of the event. It was very well organized and with Nirmay and Shubham residents participating, we had a much higher number of participants and hence more competition than previous years. Every Jashn reiterates the fact that age is just a number.

Interesting events are also taking place at our Kid Centric Homes. I was really thrilled with the level of enthusiasm when all the children cleaned their building and have since been rating it on a clean-o-meter. On the Comfort Homes front, we delivered new phases of Ashiana Surbhi in Bhiwadi, Vrinda Gardens in Jaipur and will soon be ready to deliver Ashiana Dwarka, Jodhpur and the first phase of Ashiana Tarang, Bhiwadi.

I am also thankful that from a sales prospective our numbers have been similar in Q1 and Q2 which is far better than last year and with our customers support we should end this year with a big bang!
Always keep smiling
