In a glittering ceremony held in Bengaluru recently “INLAND WINDSORS” once again came out a winner prevailing over its rivals. Needless to say this award has given another cause for celebration for the company to bask in the glory of its accomplishments.

Builders and developers from across Karnataka had submitted their entry before an eminent panel of jury in various categories for these prestigious awards. The winners were chosen by a jury comprising Satish Naik and Dr K S Ananth Krishna. The awards were presented to builders in multiple categories - North Karnataka, South Karnataka and Bangalore city. The iconic “INLAND WINDSORS” located on Airport Road in Mangaluru, is a 24 storey marvel doting the skylines of Mangaluru inaugurated in 2014. The project has been grabbing eyeballs from diverse parts of the country for its unique structure and artistic splendour since then.

There was excitement in the air coupled with anticipation at the Mysore Hall at ITC Gardenia Bengaluru, the venue of the glitzy award ceremony attended by the who’s who of CREDAI fraternity. Winning the award amidst stiff competition is truly a splendid achievement for the INLAND GROUP which is known for creating some of the most ingenious and aesthetic projects in Mangaluru and Bengaluru. With almost 3 decades of experience in the field Inland Group has taken a firm footing in the real estate field of Mangaluru because of its strict adherence to quality, transparency, aesthetics and value for money. In the process it has become a leading player in the real estate scene of Mangaluru and has been gaining grounds in Bengaluru also.

Siraj Ahmed, Chairman and Managing Director of the company who was visibly ecstatic on winning the award remarked “the suspense and anticipation resulted in ecstasy whenINLAND WINDSORS was declared the winner in the category of the “Best Residential Building in South Karnataka”. I truly believe this award is the right reward for all the hard work and strenuous efforts my company has put in, to come out with a landmark project. I am thrilled as well as quite satisfied with the recognition this project has brought to all of us”.

He also pointed out “INLAND WINDSORS” is distinctive in design, aesthetics, style, comforts, location and quality - a perfect blend that has created a victor. Keeping in tune with the unique coastal heritage we designed its natural elevation to represent the sea waves. The result is the creation of this marvellous project, which has been winning laurels and appreciation from everyone. This project has now attained iconic status and we have dedicated this to the people of Mangaluru who have patronised and encouraged us. With so many awards in our kitty I feel I am blessed for my hard work and sincere efforts in providing world class dwelling projects to Mangaloreans. INLAND’S motto is ‘in pursuit of excellence’ and true to this motto we will work ceaselessly and with renewed vigour to live up to this goal”.

Siraj Ahmed also believes that the award has brought with it greater responsibility of living up to the expectations of the people and has also raised expectations to excel in its future projects. This is the fourth award for INLAND WINDSORSwhich has already bagged the national Suraksha Puraskar Safety national award in 2011 presented by the National Safety Council of India.

    Once again Siraj Ahmed is in the news bagging another PRESTIGIOUS AWARD for the quality , style and originality in putting up a structure. The apartments therein can be termed as OWNERS' PRIDE - NEIGHBORS' ENVY

    It is good to see that 'INLLAND WINDSOR' has made history and Mr. Siraj Ahmed along with it. No one could have put up a mighty structure of this style which is unique and original apart from being a wonderful splendor.

    Over the years Siraj has bagged awards after awards and one wonders and wishes to examine THE SECRET OF HIS SUCCESS in the building industry.

    Here is Siraj who started his career in a small way about three decades ago and ever since he has never looked back and if anything has forged ahead in leaps and bounds.

    It is worth interviewing this great man of simple habits and nature. My own observations of Siraj Ahmed would be:



    Sincerity of purpose

    Adherence to TIME SCHEDULE

    Quality of Work


    I join scores of people in saying kudos to Siraj and wishing him the best of everything in future
