A three- acre Mughal- style fortress, Kanda’s home in Sirsa is part of a 13- acre com­plex that has an oph­thal-mo­log­i­cal hospi­tal, a shrine de­voted to Lord Shiva, a char­i­ta­ble trust and a memo­rial to Baba Tara, his spir­i­tual guru un­til 2002.

Park Plaza Ho­tel, Gur­gaon

An ex­clu­sive, 45- room Euro­pean- style busi­ness ho­tel spread over 2.5 acres.

Hong Kong Bazar

One lakh square feet of com­mer­cial shop­ping area in Gur­gaon’s Sec­tor 57, val­ued at more than Rs 60 crore ac­cord­ing to the com­pany. It ad­ver­tises it­self as an in­ter­na­tional shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence for niche pop­u­la­tions from em­i­nent hous­ing so­ci­eties in the town­ship.

MDLR Globe

A shop­ping, gas­tro­nomic and en­ter­tain­ment hub on the main Palam Vi­har Road in Sec­tor 23, Gur­gaon. A mix of high- end restau­rants, stores and cine­mas un­der a sin­gle roof. The pro­mot­ers claim it’s the first “theme mall” of its kind in In­dia.

Hospi­tal in Sirsa

A soon- to- be- con­structed sec­ondary and ter­tiary health­care fa­cil­ity that Kanda’s sup­port­ers say will soon ri­val Delhi’s Apollo and Es­corts hos­pi­tals. The hospi­tal is be­ing built on a three- acre plot close to the MDK In­ter­na­tional School.

Three forth­com­ing ho­tel projects

The first is in Mane­sar. The sec­ond is a su­per lux­ury ho­tel, villa and spa com­plex over 11 acres of prime es­tate along NH- 8. The third is a high- rise lux­ury ho­tel in Sec­tor 14, Gur­gaon.
