He has lead land acquisition teams, while handling projects for special townships in Thane, Pune and Nashik districts of Maharashtra. The team successfully identified and acquired 250 acres of agricultural land for setting up of state-of-the art winery near Nashik and procured various permissions and approvals for commissioning of the winery.
