Other investments and construction of DLF

Last year in Gurgaon, DLF started the construction of a commercial complex, which covers around 2 million square feet area.

Last year the company announced that their promoters would sell 40% stake of the company in the rental arm DLF Cyber City Developers Ltd. And then the promoters would be reinvesting a part of the deal amount to the DLF Ltd. The company has announced they have incurred a two-fold jump in their net profit for the quarter that ended in July. 

The housing sectors have been seeing slow level sales, but the office sector spaces have been showing high and fast sales in major cities. So with this investment in Chennai the company is expecting higher gains which would help the company in reaching its mark.
