Mr. K. P. Singh, age 78 years is at the helm of DLF. He comes from a family of successful landlords and lawyers. Mr.Singh, a Science graduate from Meerut College is an alumnus of the prestigious IMA, Dehradun. He served for 9 years in The Deccan Horse - a renowned Cavalary regiment of the Indian Army. He left the Indian Army in 1960 to join a family joint venture. Subsequently, he promoted another company, Willard India, for manufacturing industrial batteries in India. In 1961, he joined his father-in-law Chaudhary Raghvendra Singh’s realty business, Delhi Land and Finance. The late Raghvender Singh was no lesser a real estate stalwart having developed 22 colonies in Delhi, including South Extension, Greater Kailash, Panchsheel Park and Hauz Khas. Following the 1957 Delhi Development Act which made land development a state monopoly; DLF had started to lose steam. DLF subsequently moved to Gurgaon which, because of its close proximity to Delhi, began emerging as a potential satellite city. In the years to come, K.P. Singh helped convert this small rural settlement into the magnificent 10 miles (16 km) wide DLF City, which today stands tall as Asia’s largest private township.
