He has seen from close quarters how Gurgaon has emerged as one of the most sought-after real estate hotspots in the country, in a short span of time.

As a proprietor of a leading real estate firm, he knows the nitty-gritties of the trade. He thought his four decades of experience would be beneficial for the coming generation of entrepreneurs and engineers.

Narender Kumar Sehgal, 74, started writing the book when he fell ill and could not devote much time to his business. He spent six months putting down his experiences in the field to bring out - Handbook on real estate: Township development.

Sehgal, who migrated from Pakistan in 1947, had studied at Allahabad and Delhi.

The book is a guide to civil engineers, real estate developers, architects and students for planning and development projects, operation and maintenance.

A guest faculty at Ansal Institute of Technology, Sehgal said Ansal institute and Amity University have included the book in their syllabus.

According to him, his experience will help students understand the concepts. The book talks about how developers plan townships, get licences from government and other micro issues such as documents required while selling and buying the properties and documents required for getting the completion certificate for built-up houses.
