In a market that is extremely fast-paced, overly competitive and shows ceaseless fluctuations, Shalimar Corp. Ltd. stands its own ground. The unparalleled position that Shalimar has maintained is rooted in their age-old values that sustain even in a world with cut throat competition. Commitment to the customer, topped with attention to detail, characteristic designs, innovative ideas and timely deliveries is what has made the name ‘Shalimar’ interchangeable with ‘real estate’ in India. And, under the leadership of its four pioneers, Mr. Khalid Masood, Mr. Kunal Seth, Mrs. Leena Seth and Mr. Abdullah Masood, the company and its (1000+) employees seem to be reaching new heights.

Established in 1985 and headquartered in Lucknow, the Shalimar Group is spread across multiple sectors including residential and commercial real estate, property management, allied services, contractual construction works, import-export and glass processing.


The legacy of Shalimar is unmatched, and considering the direction in which Mr. Khalid Masood and Mr. Kunal Seth are moving the company, it seems futile for anyone to try and catch up. 

Having head office at Shalimar Titanium, the corporate hub of Lucknow, Shalimar Corp Ltd. is the successful developer of more than 30 real estate and infrastructure projects covering nearly 6 million sq. ft. of residential and commercial property. It is set to have under its belt an additional 15 million sq. ft. spread across Uttar Pradesh and Delhi/NCR over 10 projects in the pipeline.

Under its residential projects, Shalimar Corp. Ltd. has properties ranging from top of the line luxury apartments to premium affordable homes. The architecture, landscaping and facilities at these properties radiate elegance, setting out to reform the skyline in the city. The stepping stones for these modifications are their ongoing projects that include “Shalimar One World”, a 212-acre extravagant township located in Gomti Nagar Extension, Lucknow and “Garden Bay,” a 72-acre lavish township residing at the IIM Road, Lucknow. Both these properties are set to offer an array of world class amenities and become the Eden of Lucknow.


Some other renowned projects developed by Shalimar Group include Shalimar Gallant (an ultra-luxury project having 650+ apartments), Shalimar Grand, Shalimar Paradise (a luxury project based on Balinese architecture having 123 exclusive villas and 100+ plots), Shalimar Mannat (a project having 1000+ affordable luxury apartments), Shalimar Emerald and Shalimar Meadows.

Making a move towards Delhi/NCR, we can witness the prestigious Ibiza Town in Surajkund and Shalimar Retreat and Shalimar Nest in South Delhi as prime examples of modern housing societies. 

Besides its residential properties, Shalimar Corp Ltd. has established a strong place in the corporate world. The group is the proud designer of Shalimar Corporate Park that houses Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), one of the biggest corporations in India, hotel Fairfield by Marriot and Shalimar Titanium. Apart from being the head office of Shalimar Corp Ltd, Shalimar Titanium also houses Vodafone, VIVO, HUL, Varun Beverages, National Stock Exchange, ITC, GE along with many other prestigious organizations.  Other commercial and business projects include Shalimar Elldee Plaza, Shalimar Logix, Shalimar Square, Shalimar Iridium and many others.


Keeping in mind the future of Lucknow, U.P.S.R.T.C and Shalimar Group signed their first Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) in 2016 to develop a multipurpose facility at the Alambagh Bus Terminal and Metro Station including a hotel and a shopping mall. The Alambagh Bus Terminal is now operational and stands out as an astounding specimen of modern era transit station that stands side by side in comparision with world class airports and international transit stations. 

Headed by Mr Abdullah Massod, the contractual projects development segment of Shalimar Corp Ltd is growing extensively on national level. Apart from the world class Alambagh bus terminal developed by Shalimar, the list also includes Jaiprakash Narayan International Convention Centre - a multi-specialty Sports complex and international convention center complete with a 4-Star Hoteldeveloped by Shalimar for the Govt. of UP, Multi Level Parking in Noida, Madhuban Bapudham Yojna (856 EWS houses under PMAY) & The Bunkar Mart in Ghaziabad, Railway station building at Raipur, a housing project for NTPC Limited at Raigarh, EWS/LIG/MIG houses in Jabalpur and many more.


To manage their national presence, Shalimar Group has its regional offices in Delhi, Indore, Gorakhpur, Jabalpur and Jalandhar.

Committed to providing excellence, Shalimar Group is extremely conscious of its social responsibilities and firmly believes in inspiring change. Keeping in mind the societal developments Shalimar Group supports ‘KNPN Inter College’, and educational initiative that works towards the educational upliftment of children coming from the weaker section of the society. The College is currently enrolling over 1500 budding students. The group also supports Sparc India Jyoti Kiran School in Lucknow that takes care of differently abled children and aims at providing a better life to them. Apart from this, the organization takes regular initiatives in promoting education as well as helping the financially weeker section of the society.


Shalimar is an active part of the “Yellow Rooms”, an educational initiative taken on by Sarthak Foundation. Yellow rooms are setup at various construction sites of the company and provide education to the children of labors who work at these sites.

Shalimar acknowledges its duty towards the community and has always been dedicated in making it better. Ever since the onset of the covid-19 pandemic, the corporation has been active in the distribution of food and essential items to people who needed it all throughout Lucknow and nearby areas.

Providing quality at the grass root level and taking it to new heights, Shalimar Corp Ltd with its legacy of more than three decades has changed the game of real estate in the country. Under the aegis of its visionary leaders, Mr. Khalid Masood and Mr. Kunal Seth, Shalimar Group is all set to grow by leaps and bounds, achieve new milestones and set new precedents in the world of real estate.
