Macleods Pharmaceuticals was set up in 1986 by three brothers–Girdhari Lal Bawri, Banwari Lal Bawri and Rajendra Agarwal–whose family owned a pharmacy in Jaipur, to make anti-tuberculosis (TB) medicines. The brothers are counted amongst the country’s richest families.
A few months ago, Ravi and Neel Raheja, promoters of real estate development company K Raheja Corp, jointly bought a villa spread over more than two-thirds of an acre in Mumbai’s plush Juhu locality from the Singhania family, the promoters of JK Lakshmi Cement, for Rs 265 crore.
Transactions for land parcels have started to gather momentum again with many deals, including outright acquisitions and joint ventures, in the key property markets of Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Bangalore, either being closed or expected to close this year. The increased demand for land parcels is being driven by the sustained recovery in the housing market.
