Rams - The Beginning
Tracing its roots back to 1969, our founder Shri KV Ram, a serial entrepreneur ventured into the housing market by pioneering the concept of ‘Bombay-Style’ apartments in the city of Chennai. The concept of holding undivided interest in land was foreign and it soon earned Shri KV Ram a place in the record books. The name ‘Ram’ became synonymous with flats or apartments and soon the brand ‘RAMS’ emerged.
The diversification to commercial real estate space took place in the 80s with the launch of showroom and office spaces in the city of Chennai.
