Mangaluru, Jul 11: The IN-LAND Group, one of Karnataka’s premier builders and infrastructure developers is marking its 34th anniversary on Saturday July 11.
It has been a challenging, fascinating and fulfilling journey for Siraj Ahamed, a banker-turned- builder who gave shape to his dreams when he founded In-land Builders in 1986. This was a time when the concept of apartments and residential complexes was in its infancy in the coastal region and Siraj Ahamed’s pioneering spirit was one of the key drivers in establishing the “apartment-culture” in the city. The subsequent odyssey of three decades was quite complex with many ups and downs in the real estate business. Locating and harnessing engineering talent, convincing banks to back his plans, selling the concept of apartment living to Mangalureans and delivering projects on time – Siraj Ahamed had to single-handedly swim through a sea of responsibilities and challenges.
But he did so very successfully and the sterling reputation of the IN-LAND Group today is testimony to his 'never say die' approach to business. His companies are infused with the same unshakable principles he dearly believes in – that every citizen deserves a shelter and it is his calling in life to provide a quality home at affordable prices to those who desire to own one.
Says Siraj Ahamed “The challenges in the real estate market today are not the same that were there 34 years ago, and yet our core belief never changes. In-Land’s mission is to create iconic landmarks that people will take pride in owning and thereby spreading happiness to a wide section of citizens who are yearning to own a good home within their budget.”
“Customer’s often entrust their life’s savings to us and it is our sacred duty to safeguard that trust by giving them in return a home of their dreams. Our task starts with creating unique designs and includes using quality material and fittings in the buildings, providing more and more modern amenities and ensuring timely delivery of their homes.”
With each passing year the company has moved from strength to strength in its mission by creating some of the most outstanding buildings on the Mangaluru skyline – In-Land Ebony, the city’s first circular residential building, Inland Windsors, Mangalore’s first skyscraper, In-Land Impala, a first-of-its-kind sea facing home and In-Land Edilon, a luxury apartment with facilities like swimming pool, sports area, now ready for occupancy in Yelahanka New Town, Bengaluru. Even the company’s corporate office – In-Land Ornate is a delightful creation of modern architecture. Today, In-Land’s projects dot the skyline of Mangaluru and the company has expanded its operations to Bangalore and Puttur, with plans for new projects in neighbouring states too. It has also set up an office in Dubai to cater to its vast number of clientele.
Siraj Ahamed’s sons Meraj Yusuf and Wahaj Yusuf have displayed the same entrepreneurial spirit as their father by creating next-generation businesses within the In-Land Group: In-Land Indoors offering cutting-edge interior design solutions for homes, offices and commercial spaces, In-Land Engineering with a tie-up with LG to offer fenestrations and glazing solutions to buildings and Hotel Inland Avenue, a premier Corporate hotel in the heart of Mangaluru.
A team of professionals support the Group in executing its plans and visions. This includes highly qualified engineers, accountants and marketing professionals. The group also hires the services of well-known architects from Mumbai and Bangalore to ensure that the customer always gets more than his money’s worth.
Despite his vast on-field experience of three decades, Siraj Ahamed says there is still a lot to learn both theoretically and practically. He attends national and international workshops, seminars and conferences to keep him abreast of the latest trends, styles and progress made in the field of construction so that his trusted customers get true value for their investment. His desire to expand his knowledge is evident from the fact that he completed ‘the specialised business leadership programme’ course in 2012-13, conducted by IIM Bengaluru for builders from all over the country.
The year 2020 has brought some new and unique challenges and every sector of the economy is scrambling to cope with the changes. However, Siraj Ahamed is quite buoyant about the prospects for the real estate industry and especially for the IN-LAND Group. “We are not waiting for things to happen. We are in the field today making things happen so that even these adversities can be converted to an opportunity to help people fulfil their long-term housing needs. Many of our fellow citizens who have returned from the Gulf and Mumbai are looking for suitable homes to settle down and commercial spaces to set up business. In-land has the best blend of residential and commercial projects, located in prime areas, with the best amenities and at affordable prices for all those who value quality. In fact even in the midst of this pandemic, our Group is busy finalising the launch of a prestigious, ultra modern commercial building near KSRTC/Bharat Mall and a beautiful residential project in Kadri. Already, several of our projects have seen very good bookings and our team is ready to assist customers with site visits, price charts and home loans. I urge all those who have been dreaming of owning their cherished homes or commercial spaces to come forward as this is the best opportunity they will get to book top quality IN-LAND apartments, shops and offices at very affordable prices.”
The past 34 years have been glorious for the IN-LAND Group but it is clear that the next decade is going to be even more exciting and fulfilling for Siraj Ahamed and his team of spirited professionals.
To share the goodwill and happiness of its 34th anniversary celebrations In-Land is offering very special price discounts across various projects, valid till July 31, 2020. Prospective buyers would do well not to miss this valuable opportunity to book their preferred apartment, shops and office spaces at very affordable prices.
