A power- packed evening

Real estate news India

At the end of the day, it was an unparalleled  awards show ever hosted by a media house focused on real estate and allied industries. The stage was spectacular; the house brimming with industry representatives, the Chief Guest, Guests of Honour and the Jury in full attendance and the evening unfolding with clock-work precision.

The first-ever R&M Property Awards show hosted by Realty &More magazine broke many a norm and set standards which will be tough for others to emulate for years to come. The proverbial bar was certainly raised, as was promised by the organisers prior to the show.

The very first differentiator at the prestigious RMPA was the high-profile status of the Chief Guest and the Guests of Honour. Gen VK Singh, MoS for External Affairs, Overseas Indians Affairs and Statistics and Programme Implementation (I!C), graced the occasion and, besides giving away the first set of awards, delivered an inspiring speech befitting the event.

Among the Guests of Honour, Tariq Hameed Karra, senior PDP leader and MP from Srinagar constituency, had flown in especially despite his preoccupation with the turbulent political situation back home. Former Union Minister S Krishna Kumar was not only present but also stayed on throughout the function mingling with the realty community and other invitees from diverse fields. Likewise, RP Singh, key strategist in the BJP Election Management Committee & in charge of the Haryana wing of the party’s Kisan Morcha, made himself available all through the mega event. Four eminent members of the RMPA Grand Jury were the other dignitaries present at the function to hand over the awards.

The venue for the splendid evening on January 23 was The Ballroom at the premier five-star Hotel Oberoi in the national Capital. Located in the heart of Delhi and having an iconic status, the venue itself proved to be a major draw.


The huge RMPA stage with resplendent LED backdrop dazzled each and every one the moment he stepped into the venue. As guests settled them selves inside the gracefully decorated hall, audio-video films of the organisers and sponsors were played on the giant screen and soothing background music set the tone for the exciting evening ahead.

The event began with the traditional lighting of lamp by the Chief Guest, Guests of Honour and Realty & More Editor Palash Roy. After the auspicious start, Roy came on the stage to welcome the dignitaries and the galaxy of guests present. In his short and assertive speech, the R&M Editor profusely thanked the august gathering at the first-ever property awards show hosted by the magazine.

Tracing the history of R&M, Roy was candid enough to admit that had he known that the path ahead was so thorny, he would never have ventured into it. He emphasised that the past two years had been particularly turbulent for the real estate industry and to bring out a magazine, that too uninterrupted, during these tough times was no mean task.

But he was proud of the fact that Realty & More is the only magazine in the genre which has always stuck to the core journalistic values and stayed away from crass commercialism. He was thankful to the real estate community for not only supporting him but also respecting him for this stance.

“We are delighted to receive this award for One Horizon Center and would like to express our sincere thanks to Realty & More. We are committed to constructing world-class developments in India and would like to thank our clients for their patronage.”

Roy said the R&M Property Awards were instituted to strengthen the magazine’s bonds with the real estate industry after it entered the third year of its publication. He also talked about the differentiators introduced by RMPA like confining the sponsorships to non-realty players and constituting an eminent jury to select the winners.

The online polling conducted to choose the awardees was also fair and transparent, he emphasised. Chief Guest Gen VK Singh, in his address, exhorted the real estate developers to ensure that the promises they make to investors and homebuyers at the time of launching a project are kept in their entirety. He said the only way to win the trust of the people is to see to it that no one feels cheated at the hands of developers in terms of timelines and facilities.

We are delighted to have won the R&M Property Award for DLF Queen’s Court in the Best Luxurious Project – Residential Category. It was an added pleasure that the award was presented by the Minister of State, Gen VK Singh. Queens Court, based in GK II, New Delhi, is a rare collection of uber indulgent homes from DLF encrusted with the best in lifestyle and amenities. For those who missed the opportunity, we offer Kings Court at W Block, GK II.

Winning this prestigious award is a way of recognising and appreciating the valuable contribution we have made to the real estate sector. We have attained this position by achieving the highest international standards in real estate industry. The RMPA honour reassures us of our commitment in delivering the best service to our customers.

The minister said the Narendra Modi Government was doing its utmost to help the real estate industry progress and, in this regard, he specifically referred to its ‘urban thrust’ that included ‘Housing for All for 2022’, AMRUT and Smart Cities Missions. He said the recent launch of the NH24 widening was also going to prove a boon for real estate community in the region. He emphasised that the Government was taking all possible steps and it was up to the developer community to ensure that non serious players among them are eliminated. Realty &More  magazine, he said, can play a crucial role in this cause.

Receiving this award at such a reputed platform is indeed an honour for SARE Homes. This recognition showcases our commitment towards the industry and encourages us to continue meeting our customers’ expectations. We wish to thank the RMPA Jury for adjudging us as the winner.

After the conclusion of the minister’s powerful speech, arrived the moment which everyone had been waiting for-the presentation of the coveted RMPA trophies. As an acknowledgement of the painstaking efforts put in by the Jury members, the organisers began the proceedings by honouring them with mementos.

RMPA is a very good platform wherein builders and the architect fraternity can come together and be recognised for their achievement. Brands like Eauset can add value to the real estate projects. R&M can bring all of them together to achieve this vision.

I would like to congratulate the entire team of Realty & More for such a successful event. Indeed I can characterise R&M Awards to be non biased and critically-evaluated awards. I wish you all the best for future endeavors.

To give away these mementos, Neeraj Gulati, MD of Assotech Realty, sponsors of these mementos, was also invited to share the stage with the Chief Guest.

We are extremely honoured to receive this prestigious award from Realty & More. Awards like these are a testimony to our success in the field of real estate development and we consider it as a token of motivation to continue our momentum of innovations in our projects.

Thereafter, as charming and articulate MC Ghazal announced the beginning of the first set of R&M property awards, there was perceptible excitement in the air with everyone keeping his fingers crossed. The hall resounded with loud cheers as one after the other winner selected by the Jury was called on the stage to collect his sought-after trophy from the Chief Guest. Then followed the next set of awards and to give these away, Srinagar MP Tariq Karra was invited to the stage.

It is indeed a great moment for us. It is always a joy to get recognised for your work. We aim to provide a complete home at the best possible cost. We always think from our customers’ point of view and strive hard to fulfill their dream. This award has further energised us.”
PRADEEP AGGARWAL Co-Founder & Chairman Signature Global

Next it was the turn of former Union minister Krishna Kumar and BJP leader RP Singh to present the trophies and they were followed by Jury members RK Jain, Vikram Lall, Mousumi Roy and Ankur Dhawan. As the award presentation spree went on, the hall kept booming with loud cheers from the jubilant crowd. Before bringing curtains on the ceremony, the organisers called various sponsors on the stage and acknowledged their contributions to RMPA by presenting them with mementos.


Once the high-profile awards ceremony came to a close, it was time to party. The MC announced famous singer Dahek’s entry on to the stage and the whole atmosphere got electrified. The singer (aka Indian Pitbull) rendered a few popular numbers and even those busy at the bar rushed inside to dance to his tunes. A bout of drinking, singing and dancing concluded with a sumptuous dinner following which it was curtains on the mega show. An unusual winter chill notwithstanding, the guests gradually trickled out in the snugness of the glorious moments experienced at the gala awards evening hosted by Realty & More.
