Mr.Sushil Ansal

Chairman

Mr. Sushil Ansal is the Chairman of Ansal API, one of India's leading real estate infrastructure conglomerates. He is also a philanthropist and public-spirited citizen of renown. Regarded as one of the doyens of the real estate development business in India, Ansal was primarily responsible, in the early 1970s, for changing the skyline of downtown Delhi and converting the Connaught Place area into a contemporary central business district, with the capital's first high rise buildings.

Since then, it has been a long journey. Ansal's projects have taken him across India and the world. The Ansal signature is visible as far apart as Palam Vihar in Gurgaon and St Petersburg in Russia. As part of a small group of business leaders who urged the government to open up the real estate sector.

He has contributed to the regulatory transformation that has underpinned a series of privately built townships (many of them bearing the Ansal name) and given the national capital region and neighbouring states an array of modern urban spaces, creating millions of first generation home owners.

Mr. Ansal is now incubating two hi-tech townships one in Lucknow and the other adjoining Noida that he promises will remain state of the art, even in the closing years of the twenty first century.

Amidst the excitement of building a career, a company and, indeed, an industry, Mr. Ansal has never forgotten his roots and his social calling. Born into a middle-class home and to a remarkable father who combined Gandhian austerity with entrepreneurial zeal - giving up in the 1940s, a secure government job to set out on his own - Ansal has been true to this ethos. From its native village in Punjab to its beloved city of Delhi, the Ansal family has made a tradition of giving back. Sushil Ansal sees this as the most important part of his legacy, one that will occupy him for the rest of his days.
