Vol 17 | No. 64 | April - June 2019



From the Desk of the Jt. MD


Dear Friends,
In the last issue, I spoke about the concept of Kids Centric Homes and I am delighted that our initial effort in that space - at Ashiana Town, Bhiwadi - has met with a fantastic response, both from our existing residents as well as from prospective clients. Approximately 50 kids joined the 'Live and Learn' program; my brothers and I had the pleasure of meeting some of the kids and their parents and got a positive feedback. Obviousy there is scope for improvement as we go forward.

During this initiative, we saw an increase in our booking numbers. We closed over 20 new sales and a few houses on resale too. This suggests that people are inclining towards homes which are designed and developed to facilitate the all-round development of children. To know more about how kid-centric homes are different, please check out the video by Varun Gupta on Ashiana's youtube channel. I would like to thank all the residents and new buyers for accepting our new concept.

As we are on the topic of kids development, I must take this opportunity to congratulate two of our residents - Denis and Shubham - on winning the All India Junior Badminton Championship. We are so happy to have you as our residents and so proud of the great work you guys have done. Thank you.

During the last quarter I had an opportunity to travel to almost all the locations of Ashiana and I was so glad to see the quality of work being done by our team. It gives me such a sense of pride to see that we are improving our quality, service and commitment day after day and in all locations. I would request all of you to visit our new projects to see the difference.

We launched Phase 2 in Ashiana Shubham (Senior living), Chennai and we are pleased at the great response it has got. We are also in the process of launching new phases in other locations this quarter. As always, we look towards our existing customers to make these launches a success as your word-of-mouth makes all the difference!

Always keep smiling!
