The King Who Rules

Mr Pradeep Jain, Chairman, Parsvnath Developers

“Rhetoric is the art of ruling the minds of men.”  - Plato

“We strive to build a better World”

By Sayantan Chakravarty and Yogesh Sood

That what the great Greek philosopher said over two millennia ago holds true even today. But now, in the 21st century, there is another reality. And that is that minds of men are ruled by those that raise imposing structures.

Property has come to redefine power. It leaves behind an enduring legacy. And those that rule property are pretty much ruling the minds of men. Life may be short, but in that one physical lifetime, those that are destined, will pretty much leave their mark on the structures of time.

Nothing is impossible for the ones that are destined. No obstacle is high enough. No stone is heavy enough to be left unturned. No last mile is long enough to remain un-run. No dream is unreal enough to not follow. No idea large enough to be nipped in the bud. There’s always a possibility, always a way, always a theatre to play out the dreams.

Champions inevitably find a way, and their path will mostly be scripted in excellence and high performance. Similar is the story of Parsvnath Developers Limited, a shimmering business entity that has left its mark on the real estate landscape of India.


Scripting glory in tiles, marbles, cement, paint, brick, steel and mortar in a modern, elegant and futuristic way across India’s horizons has become life’s long mission for champion builder and real estate giant Mr Pradeep Jain, the dapper chairman of Parsvnath Developers Limited. Thanks to his vision, mission and initiatives, Parsvnath Developers has today made its presence felt across 47 cities in 15 Indian states and an impressive tally of 47 delivered projects. There is hardly a top brand worth its logo that hasn’t associated itself with the group projects in malls, SEZs, IT parks, hotels, residential townships and retail space.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” Elaeanor Roosevelt, former American First Lady, once famously said. Mr Jain followed his dreams and carved a future—eloquently told through high energy, real estate projects. 

The company has been known for its innovative approach, transparent dealings and customer- friendly policies. These are strong traits that helped Parsvnath Developers become India’s first real estate firm with a more than 55 times over-subscribed IPO in 2006.

It is Mr Pradeep Jain’s innate ability to look ahead of time that made him visualize and execute magnificient projects on a pan India basis. It helped transform barren tracts into landscaped greens that would then house world class commercial, residential and recreational properties. “Building a better world” became the group’s catch phrase and its oxygenating driving force, one that pretty much came to stay on every lip associated with the progress and growth of Parsvnath Developers Limited.


Mr Pradeep Jain the outgoing Chairman, CREDAI—National, an apex body of builders and developers in the national capital region with membership running into several thousands, decided long back that he had to think out of the box to shape India’s building future. President Abraham Lincoln once remarked that if he had “eight hours to fell a tree, he’d spend six hours sharpening his axe.” This is more or less the method that Mr Pradeep Jain applied in order to pursue success. He watched, took notes, and figured out ways to stay ahead in the race. He sharpened his skills, studied every minute detail, worked on the understanding he received, before moving in. “Business in the new globalized economy is all about reaching out to the emerging markets and getting competitive in the existing markets with better understanding of new variables,” he says.

To do that, Mr Pradeep Jain decided that he required an integrated approach to development, one that would involve horizontal and vertical operational synergy across various segments. Multi-faceted, all round development was key, and therein is to be found the recipe of the Parsvnath Developers success story. In the words of Swami Vivekananda, “take up one idea. Make that one idea your life—think of it, dream of it, live on that idea….This the way of success.” One idea of multi-faceted growth became Mr Pradeep Jain’s life. The axe kept being sharpened.


Parsvnath Developers is a company whose business philosophy lies in the commitment to creating architectural marvels using state-of-the-art-technology and global architectural, construction and business practices. The group is passionate about providing cost-effective and holistic solutions for customers while creating and adding value for our partners and stakeholders.
