The Borkar family has played a significant role in the business landscape of Goa for over a hundred years now. Starting from a small retail kiosk managed by Mr Shripad Borkar in 1910, the Group has evolved into a diversified business conglomerate that occupies a place of pride in the Goan economy.
The Borkar family today is well-entrenched in printing and packaging, retail and real estate. In 1981, Mr Avinash Borkar established Akar Creations – the real estate arm of the Borkar family. For over three decades now, Akar Creations has worked with unceasing focus and commitment towards creating better, more beautiful, more sustainable spaces for the people of Goa to live and work in.
The company has to its credits several firsts as listed below:
Pancharatna, South Goa’s first commercial complex;
Nandanvan, the first row house project in Margao;
Ram Nagari, the first and only low cost housing project by any private developer in Goa; among many others.
Akar Creations is now Akar Realty – A new avatar of an old, trusted, much loved entity. The journey thus far has been a privilege. The future is bursting with promise. And Akar Realty is prepared. To take on the challenges of a new, dynamic economy; and to deliver on the phenomenal promise of the Borkar DNA!
