Mahindra Lifespace Developers (MLD), the real estate arm of $4.5-billion Mahindra Group, would invest close to Rs 800 crore in its six upcoming residential projects in Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Delhi and NCR over the next 2-3 years, reports Pramugdha Mamgain from New Delhi. With the launch of its residential project in Faridabad recently, the company entered the real estate market of North India. The real estate firm is targeting a turnover of Rs 1,000 crore in the next five years against Rs 163 crore in 2006-07. So far, the company has completed projects in Mumbai, Pune and Chennai and is now entering the northern region. "With the launch of Chloris, the residential project in Faridabad, we made our presence in real estate market of the North. We are coming up with a similar project in Delhi spread over 17 acres," said MLD CEO Pawan Malhotra. He added the company is looking at expanding into other areas of the region including Chandigarh and Himachal Pradesh. Asked about funding plans for the projects Mr. Malhotra said, "We would be expanding in a phased manner. Initially, the funding would be primarily through internal accruals. It's only when we go about de-veloping the land further, we may resort to loans and private equity." While work on the Faridabad project has already commenced, construction of the project in Delhi is yet to begin. Work on the two projects coming up in Mumbai and one each in Pune and Chennai are also yet to commence. Currently, MLD has a land bank of 3 million square feet for residential projects
