Speaking on this occasion, ‘Saharasri’ Subrata Roy Sahara, Managing Worker & Chairman, Sahara India Pariwar said, “India has always been an attraction to the world for its magnificent architecture and vibrant lifestyle. While the magnificence of the ancient marvels of architecture stand tall for the world to see, the standard of living space across the nation has failed to match the change of time and the world standards, primarily due to lack of adequate up-gradation of support infrastructure; load of population and fractured & sporadic planning. It is my earnest desire to provide a lifestyle to the citizens of our beloved nation which matches the world’s best standards. We have vowed to develop comprehensive real estate projects offering quality lifestyle to people across the board covering not just Tier I cities but also Tier II, III and even small  towns, in congruence to the scales of income of people.”

He further said, “In our endeavour, we have witnessed many ups and downs in the industry and faced many challenges, many due to the magnitude of our vision; but I am happy that we have proved at all steps that our mission is undeterred. These 10 townships along with the ongoing 8 township projects and forthcoming 58 projects to be added in January 2013, enforce our commitment and I am sure that these projects will be the jewels of quality lifestyle”.   

Spread on a total area of 900 acres, the 10 projects will offer 25 thousand residential units along with a world class range of amenities and facilities. The Project Management of these 10 projects will be done by Sahara Turner Constructions Limited. The possessions of residential units is planned to start in 2.5 years with project completion in 5 years.

Out of the 10 projects, the 9 ‘Sahara City Homes’ integrated townships are coming up in the cities of Pune, Aurangabad, Jodhpur, Gwalior, Bareilly, Solapur, Porbandar, Katni, Kashipur while 1 ‘Sahara Grace’ brand of premium residential apartment cluster is coming up in Cuttak - Bhubaneshwar. These 10 cities will span across 7 States of India.
