Belani Group was founded in the year 1967 by a perceptive entrepreneur Mr. K. P. Belani, who foresaw Kolkata’s potential in Real Estate development. His dream was to offer a distinctive lifestyle to the people of Kolkata, which began with building the Himalaya House at Chowringhee.

Almost half a century has passed and this man’s dream is well embedded in Kolkata’s skyline. Not only did he start the journey, he laid down the foundation for our modern day beliefs. He can be rightfully credited for introducing the concept of high-rise buildings in Kolkata. It is under this man’s leadership, Kolkata saw an influx of high rise buildings like Neelambar, Neelkamal, Neelkanth and Shakespeare Court in the 70’s.

Today, high rise buildings have become a common feature across Kolkata. What the City practices today, was envisioned by this man five decades ago. We are grateful to him for providing each one of us with a recognizable platform. We have all come a long way from Himalaya House; however, we still carry Late Mr. K.P. Belani’s vision and passion in our hearts with every passing day.
