Through the ages, a nation's march towards development has been marked by spectacular infrastructure development projects. In fact, a nation has often announced its entry into the hallowed league of developed nations through landmark buildings.
Today, India is a nation on the move. Already a superpower in the IT and software arena, we are fast striding towards supremacy in numerous other fields including drugs and pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, alternative energy solutions, automotive, etc. This coupled with the new world order of globalization, free trade and cooperation have thrown open new and exciting vistas of opportunities in the area of infrastructure and real estate development. Cities are being transformed and skylines redefined to reflect our rapid strides into the developed world. Landmark infrastructure has become the order of the day and ultra-modernism the mantra.
It is a matter of great pride for all of us at ARL that we are making a substantial and aesthetic contribution to revolutionizing the landscape of the National Capital Region. Our Group stands poised at the cutting-edge of development in realty spaces including workspaces, hospitality, residence/service apartments and entertainment. We are in the process of building world standards in corporate spaces with state-of-the-art IT Parks and SEZ's and our commercial complexes and hospitality ventures are setting the benchmarks for excellence in the region.
In fact, ARL has emerged as one of the leading developers of hospitality infrastructure in terms of the number of rooms being readied for the Commonwealth Games in 2010. Not only will these redefine the hospitality space, we are also poised to offer facilities that are at par with the legendary hospitality properties found globally. Multitudes will experience international living standards in our residential / service apartment projects that are replete with all the facilities and amenities available anywhere in the world.
All these landmark projects are being built on the strong foundation of quality, professionalism and an unwavering commitment to value creation for our stakeholders. Our endeavor has been to build international quality into every structure. This would not have been possible without professionalism permeating across the entire organization.
At the onset of the new dawn, we reaffirm our commitment to build upon international standards in order to provide outstanding value to our shareholders.
