A glimpse of vibrant community we build.
From the Desk of the Jt. MD
It gives me great pleasure to introduce the new issue of Apna Ashiana. In the past issues, we witnessed accomplishments, big and small steps taken to bring a smile on the faces of our residents and engaging in exciting activities that make every day living in Ashiana, a delightful experience. I take pride in the number and variety of activities organised for our residents, employees, contractual staff and laborer's children. Makes me recall dad’s vision that, “Ashiana is not only about creating a high-quality project but it is also about touching people’s lives”. I am so glad, we have been able to do that every single time.
Our dream of creating more spaces where our kids learn new skills will soon be active at Ashiana Anmol, a feature that not just focuses on elite infrastructure but also the kind of activities kids engage in. Another good news that I would like to share with all of you is,
in the last quarter we had better sales than the same period last year. We owe this success to the Ashiana Smiles campaign, where our existing residents got rewarded with points for referring new customers.
Lastly, I would like to thank our seniors who participated in the Jashn Event and shared their photographs on social media. It thrilled me to learn that some customers created social media accounts specifically to share their feelings about Jashn! Here’s looking forward to another interesting quarter, full of fun and happiness! Always Keep Smiling

Sales Closures: Closing is distinguished from ordinary practices such as explaining a product's benefits or justifying an expense. It is reserved for more artful means of persuasion. 25 sales executives were trained on how to effectively close their sales with finesse and winning trust of the customers to foster long term relationships based on trust.
English Communication: Most of us are non-native speakers of the English language. This required customized English communication classes which was introduced for a group of 20 in order to enhance both written & oral communication skills.
