Ravinder Reddy

Founder & Chairman

Mr. Ravinder Reddy is the Chairman of Janapriya group. Prior to establishing Janapriya, Mr. Reddy worked as a Junior Engineer in the Irrigation Department, Government of Andhra Pradesh, India. He was then elected as the Secretary and later as the President of the Engineers Association. After launching Janapriya in 1985, he observed the lack of information about housing loans and a disorganized construction industry had contributed to depriving buyers an opportunity to own a home. Therefore, he started building homes keeping in mind the loan eligibility of salaried employees, cost efficiency through large scale projects & direct marketing, which made all the difference to Janapriya & the home buyers.
