“We are targeting to double our sales bookings to Rs 3,000 crore in the current 2024-25 fiscal,” the company’s CMD Ashwin Sheth told reporters here.

He said the company plans to expand its business portfolio in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) and is foraying into Bengaluru, Delhi-NCR. It is also exploring to enter Hyderabad, Chennai and Goa.

“We are planning to launch an Initial Public Offering (IPO) in the next 18-24 months,” Sheth said.

Ashwin Sheth Group will also enter into other segments like warehousing.

“India’s real estate market has long been a key driver of economic growth, significantly contributing to the country’s GDP. As Mumbai leads the luxury market and the real estate industry experiences positive momentum, we decided this was the perfect time for us to move onto the next level,” Sheth said.

Bhavik Bhandari, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Ashwin Sheth Group, said, “We are aggressively expanding in the Pan MMR region and we will be soon launching projects in Kandivali, Borivali, Sewree, Juhu, 7 Rasta, Marine Drive, Nepean Sea Road, Goregaon, Thane, Mulund, and Mazagaon.” Bhandari said the company is acquiring land across cities to expand business.
