Thought leadership

Across the landscape of Bengaluru, Hyderabad and 5 other Indian cities, the Salarpuria Sattva Group is a name that’s made its indelible mark. Ably led by its Managing Director, Bijay Agarwal, a first generation entrepreneur, who has built a rock- solid empire through ethical business practices. Today, he stands tall as the driving force behind the success of the brand,  that is a front runner in the realty space, scripting its success story, with unwavering commitment.

The Salarpuria Sattva Group started in 1993 in Bengaluru. The company made its foray with a commercial building, followed by a residential project in Indiranagar.  Taking advantage of the thriving IT growth, the Group was a front runner in setting up some of the first IT Tech Parks in the city, in the late 90s. With uncanny vision, Bijay Agarwal was instrumental in changing the skyline of the IT Capital. 

In the year 2007 his vision, steered the Group towards the residential sector in full earnest, influenced by the global financial environment.  This led to Salarpuria Sattva’s strong financial consolidation. Today, the Group has completed 114 projects across 7 cities in India and set a benchmark in both the Commercial and Residential spaces. The Group has a CRISIL ‘A’ stable rating, the highest financial rating for any real estate company in India.  

In a span of 3 decades, Bijay Agarwal has taken the group to a leadership position having mastered all areas of Project Quality and Execution, with on time delivery, being a key factor in his success story. By leveraging the best of technology, innovation and IT, he has scripted the Group’s growth, achieving  48 million sq ft of completed space and 36 million sq ft in progress. Small wonder, he was named as ‘Global Indian of the Year’ by Asia One magazine, in 2018.

Today, he heads a large conglomerate with interests in Education, Hospitality, Urban Development, Facility Management, D&B Solutions, Retail, Aerospace and Warehousing. Setting firm footprints, he has captured the Hyderabad market with world class Tech Parks and 30 million sq ft. of upcoming, cutting-edge commercial space in the city. He has also made a foray into co-living and co-working ventures.

A financial wizard, he has formed strategic partnerships with top international players for Real Estate investments. Passionate about education, he is the Chairman of the Greenwood International chain of schools, which imparts all-round education and has won awards for the best International School in the city. Perhaps his degree in Owner/President Management (OPM) from Harvard Business School in 2015, stoked his passion to bring an international standard of Education, back home. 

Bijay Agarwal is above all else, an advocate of ethical business practices, strong financial discipline and transparency and believes that this is the lasting formula, to build a successful empire. His strong commitment to family values and staying grounded, are what keeps this multi-dimensional entrepreneur at the helm of his empire, that’s built on the solid foundation of ‘Trust’
