DLF Real Estate

Delhi Land & Finance, or DLF, is a company set up by DLF chairman Mr.Kushal Pal Singh's father-in-law, Chaudhary Raghvendra Singh. The company at that time had developed no fewer than 21 colonies in Delhi between 1947 and 1961, which was taken over by the Delhi Development Authority. That had forced DLF to diversify into batteries, cables and so on.

Six decades later, DLF has invested close to Rs 80,000 crore in projects running into 100 million square feet. The group has made remarkable contribution in the evolution of the sleepy adjacent city of Gurgaon to the ‘investor’s destination’ of India. Their foresightedness in identifying Gurgaon as the next logical extension of Delhi proved to be their biggest advantage, as they were the ones to make the first move in Gurgaon real estate.

However, DLF’s role in confirming the visit of Jack Welch, the CEO of GE to India on the invitation of Rajiv Gandhi the then Prime Minister of India proved to be the biggest turnaround for DLF and Mr. K. P. Singh. Welch was not only struck by the country's trained manpower and started thinking in terms of outsourcing back office work to India; but also set up GE's first office at Gurgaon.

Almost overnight, Gurgaon had turned from a sleepy village to a throbbing hub of commercial activity. DLF which started its business then with a new lease has definitely come a long way since then - from townships, shopping malls and commercial space to hotels, special economic zones and infrastructure projects.
