DLF Group

DLF Group
DLF Group is India’s one of the most famous and successful builders’ group. It is impossible to discuss the real state sector in India without giving a special reference to DLF group. It started as ‘Delhi Lease and Finance’ in 1946 aimed at revolutionizing the Real Estate industry in the country. Led by the visionary K. P. Singh in 1946, DLF began its journey from developing some of the initial Residential Colonies in the city. After the Delhi Government banned the private Real Estate and Residential Colony Development in Delhi, the DLF group is completely involved in the development of the city of Gurgaon and other areas in NCR.

Business Areas
DLF Group is India's largest real estate company in terms of revenues, earnings, market capitalization and developable area. It has a wonderful and consistent track record of growth, customer satisfaction, and innovation. DLF has registered its presence across 32 cities across the country. The primary business of the group is residential, commercial and retail properties. However, recently DLF has recently ventured into the infrastructure, SEZ and hotel businesses too. DLF has a only one of its kind business model with earnings arising from development and rentals.

Major Projects
The first and foremost project of DLF was the late 1940s project of the development of 21 urban colonies in and around Delhi. Many of these localities have since metamorphosed into posh colonies such as South Extension, Greater Kailash, Rajouri Garden, Model Town and Hauz Khas. DLF Group was one of the first developers to anticipate the need for townships on the outskirts of fast growing cities and it has been synonymous with the growth of Gurgaon from a barren village to one of the hottest realty destinations. The DLF City in Gurgaon, spread over 3000 acres, is an integrated township that plays host to some of the finest residential, commercial, retail and entertainment complexes in the country.

DLF Universal is widely credited with changing the dour face of Indian workspace by coming up with stunning, aesthetically built offices that are tailor-made to suit the organizational requirements of their clients. The homes business segment of DLF Limited involves a wide range of products including condominiums, duplexes, row hoses and apartments of varying sizes, with a focus on the higher end of the market.
