The 31-acre housing project ‘Parsvnath Exotica’ is being developed by its subsidiary Parsvnath Buildwell.

“Sun-Apollo will invest up to Rs 100 crore for a 49.9 per cent stake in the project SPV Parsvnath Buildwell, which will develop the project,” Parsvnath said in a statement.

“This is the fifth project being developed by us in which foreign investors have made foreign direct investment (FDI),” said Mr Pradeep Jain, Chairman, Parsvnath Developers.

For Sun Apollo, this is the second investment in Parsvnath’s project. Earlier, it had invested Rs 75 crore in a housing project in Gurgaon.
