Alpesh Kotadia, city based industrialist is all set to change the concept of affordable homes into desirable homes in budget
Inspired by Government of India’s initiative ‘Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna’ (PMAY), a mission in which affordable housing will be provided to the urban poor with a target of building 20 million affordable houses by year – 2022, putting his best foot forward Mr. Kotadia, who is also chairman of Green Group, is planning to build more than 5,000 affordable houses by 2020 with modern amenities where all the residents can have qualitative life, safety and peace of mind.
“The proposed affordable housing scheme is the biggest township project in the history of Gujarat. Our project with its greatness in uplifting living standard of common people will setup a new identity landmark for the diamond city of Surat, which is traditionally well-known for its multi-variety food dish (Surati Bhojan) and diamond business, says Mr. Kotadia.
The impressive and exemplary success story of self-made multi billionaire, Mr. Kotadia has a humble beginning from small village named Lasa in Amreli district of Saurashtra region in Gujarat. Mr. Kotadia had born in a jointly living, financially very normal farming family on April 26, 1975. However, in a bid to avail good education and better future for their children his parents — father, Gokalbhai, a farmer, and mother, Geetaben — moved to Surat several decades ago. After completing his education he started working as a real estate contractor at very young age.
Mr. Kotadia identified the gap between people’s needs, their purchasing capacity and the lack of infrastructure that would propel their standard of living to greater heights and managed to fill this gap. With growth driving entrepreneurs like him as role models, Surat is fast becoming a major investment hub and has been ranked by global investors as the fifth-most attractive investment destination after metros. As an entrepreneur he was always on the look-out for creative opportunities and really didn’t refrain himself from taking calculative risks that soon become his ‘Unique Selling Proposition’ and yielded desired results and fruitfulness with business expansion.
At present, through all diversified ventures Mr. Kotadia is providing employment to over 400 people.
Mr. Kotadia with his never ending commitment to make India self sustainable through superior yet affordable infrastructure inspired him to successfully complete more than 20 real estate projects accounting to more than 9,000 homes in Surat city and its surrounding posh suburban areas since the year 2002.
