A Brief on ILD
ILD was set up by Mr. Alimuddin Rafi Ahmed in 2006 post acquiring an experience of the real estate functioning and land consolidations for over two decades. The developer has a very logical approach to its projects that include launching projects at locations that have the potential to grow. A very fine example is the ILD Trade Centre, which has now become a growth and profit story for the Group. The Group has set its foot in South Gurgaon and chosen it a potential growth location with its residential projects across budget categories.
All of its current projects abut the major roads and highways in the region. ILD is investing heavily in transforming its development portfolio to be one of the most modern and in sync with the times. They have used services of leading architects and construction firms such as – Mohit Gujral for Trade Centre, WOW Architects, Hafeez Contractor and Design Forum International for the under development residential portfolio.
In our various conversations with the management team and others at the company, we could find that Group is investing in its brand, processes and future growth. Several professionals have been brought into important positions and there is a good thrust to digital initiatives as well. This is turn reflects the firm’s philosophy of “work with the best”, thereby infusing best design practices, international standards and best of services to the industry.
ILD believes in well planned structures that are not only sustainable but also scientifically driven for convenient end user dynamics. And most importantly, they believe in not only scoring customers but also maintaining a long relationship with them which is fruitful both the ways. The process oriented work culture has helped strike the right balance for documentation and the professional approach of employees have equally played a role in plugging the right socket for success.
