High Quality Land bank
Land Acquisition in India is fraught with complex issues. The farmlands needed for acquisition are highly fragmented and land accumulation needs not only an excellent understanding of local laws and bylaws but also local customs and social equations. The land development authorities allot lands through bids and personal inspections.
The last source of land is from individuals and corporate bodies wherein relationships are crucial.
ARL has a customized mechanism to acquire strategically located, low cost lands that provide downside protection. Strong relationships have been forged with accumulators of farmland who are responsible for land accumulation and conversion of development rights. Local presence is maintained through a highly experienced team that completes financial arrangements needed to execute projects in time. Close relationship with the authorities who appreciate ARL's past performance enables fast approvals. The landowners and intermediaries also facilitate timely access to new areas with potential. ARL has also built an experienced team that understands the local byelaws and regulations and is capable of predicting market trends for anticipating future demands.
ARL's 3 pronged Land strategy leverages these inherent advantages. It comprises:
We invest in land in developed areas.
Category B (2-4 years perspective):
Invest if infrastructure is planned for development.
Category C (>4 years perspective):
Based on city development plans.
In-House Construction Arm
Unlike other developers and realtors, ARL leverages the advantages of an in-house construction team. The unmatched advantage of an in-house, dedicated team of about 1000 engineers and employees impart in terms of savings and total control over time taken for completion of projects. There are no contractual bindings in case of third party contractors, building in flexibility for incorporating any change in terms of design, finish, etc.
