Niranjan Hiranandani- Builder Extraordinaire

By Elsie Gabriel

Leadership, brilliance, untiring zest for excellence and down-to-earth are words that come to mind when one comes face-to-face with Mr. Niranjan Hiranandani.

The phrase ‘labore et constantia’ which literally means ‘with consistent efforts, one can scale great heights’ sums up his success story! It hasn’t been easy, not at all, plenty of effort and strategizing skills has got him to where he is. I remember it was Elbert Hubbard who had once said, “He who has achieved success has worked well, laughed often and loved much.”

Niranjan Hiranandani-building new horizons every year.

Niranjan Hiranandani is the Managing Director of the Hiranandani Group of Companies. The Group is today considered as a producer of best quality housing and commercial premises in the country. Apart from construction, the group has diversified into education, horticulture, hospitality, entertainment and retail. His biggest future business dream is to get into the ‘Power’ avenues soon but what he has up his sleeves is the super deluxe luxurious hospitality expansion that he is launching during this year end! Right here in Powai!

Niranjan is the son of eminent ENT Surgeon and Padma Bhushan recipient Dr. L.H. Hiranandani, an icon in the field of medicine. From his early humble beginnings of teaching chartered accountancy, Niranjan began his initial business by venturing into textiles with a weaving unit at Charkop in Kandivali in 1981. His first spark of recognition in the construction line came with their work in Versova, Andheri in the mid-eighties.

The transformation of a barren land in Powai from a lonely hillside quarry with about 20 trees to one that is bustling with activity, with over 200 acres of greenery, as well as top-of-the-line commercial, residential, recreational and educational facilities is something we all cherish.

Since then, the Hiranandani Group has come a long way to be recognized countrywide for their modern and state-of-the-art mix-user township projects in Powai and Thane, both of which have become preferred residential and commercial locations in and around Mumbai. They call him Builder Extraordinaire and the man responsible for changing the skyline of Mumbai.

Niranjan Hiranandani completed his schooling from Campion School, Mumbai and graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree (Hons.) from Sydenham College with a distinction of standing Second in Mumbai University. Adding to his professional qualification, he completed his F.C.A. from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India.

Niranjan is actively associated with and holds key positions in various Government Bodies, Private and Social Institutions, Schools and Colleges.
