An alumni of St. Stephen's College, Delhi, Ch. Raghvendra Singh started his career as a civil servant and later joined the Indian Army, where he was decorated with MBE (Member of British Empire) for exemplary service.
He founded DLF in 1946 and it was his skills as an entrepreneur that enabled him to transform the urban landscape of the National Capital Region by providing homes to millions of people who settled in Delhi and other areas following the partition. He was actively associated with the Boards of Management of various charitable trusts, educational institutions and other philanthropic activities.
As a founder of the Indian real estate sector, a true nationalist, and a great philanthropist, he has left indelible footprints on the sands of time that will last forever.
