Kapoor has been Chief Operating Officer -Residential Business at Puravankara Ltd since September 2019.
Commenting on the result, Managing Director Ashish R Puravankara, said, "We have begun the new financial year on a high note with our Q1 results." "The foundational strength of our portfolio and operational agility kept us resilient, ensured business continuity while undergoing a seamless digital transformation," he added.
Ashish said the company recorded a sales value of Rs 314 crore exclusively from ready-to-move and under construction projects.
"This is especially encouraging in the light of increased price realisation per square feet leading to margin protection," he said.

"We expect the positive customer sentiment to sustain in the future as well. With a net debt reduction of Rs 451 crore and operating inflows of Rs 817 crore, we are well capitalised to optimise the buoyant sentiment," said Ashish.
