A glimpse of vibrant community we build.
From the Desk of the Jt. MD
I would like to start by remembering a person very special to the company Kuldeep Gahlaut, who passed away last quarter. It was a tragic and major loss for all of us. Fondly known as KG, he headed the HR function in the organisation and brought about major changes in the area of people development and training at Ashiana. We will always be grateful to him and remember him with affection.
One of KG's beliefs was that the workplace should be a fun place too! In his memory the team has started a club called Books and Beyond where people learn while competing in fun events.
For residents of Ashiana we have started a programme called 'Ashiana Supermoms'. The idea is to facilitate talented moms in our projects to showcase their talent, share and teach other residents and children and for all to enjoy the process. I hope that this helps our supermoms make good use of their skills, achieve their goals and also provide a great learning opportunity to other residents. The programme has been initiated in Bhiwadi and is now taking shape in Jaipur, Jodhpur and Neemrana.
It is very satisfying for all of us at Ashiana to give possession of your homes on time; to see the look of delight and joy on your faces…and fortunately we see this happening regularly at our projects in various locations. I am also excited that in our new project, Ashiana Anmol at Sohna (South of Gurgaon), the structure is ready and in Shubham at Chennai, the external plaster is almost complete and we will be delivering the units on time.
Our ICRA rating has been upgraded to ‘A’ which shows the strong financial health of the company -- even in a tough market. We consider this an endorsement of how the company has managed its finances during these turbulent times and pledge to always do our best for all our stakeholders.
And finally, to end with another piece of good news - our CSR initiatives have won us the Bhamashah Award from the Rajasthan Government for the 5th consecutive time!
Always keep smiling!
