01 Sep 2011
Firsts come naturally to Bengaluru-based Mantri Developers, who introduced tele-medicine for residential properties and gave customers a bare shell, allowing them to customise their homes as per their desires. Under the stewardship of Sushil Mantri, Chairman and Managing Director, the company focuses on homes, IT parks, retail spaces and educational institutions. To date, the company, which operates in Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad and Pune, has built over 10 million sq ft, with another over 8 million sq ft under various stages of construction.

Sushil Mantri's take on ethics in real estate today...
"While we work together to achieve our collective goals, on an individual level I encourage all members of the developer community to work towards maintaining and building a strong reputation for the real-estate sector in India. Through transparency in all our dealings and by honouring our commitments, we will be able to sustain a professional image for ourselves."
