That makes the Godrej group the biggest private land owner in Mumbai by far. Such vast land can, in theory, be used to create at least1,500 acres (6.1 km
) of residential floor space, which, at very modest rates (Rs.10000/sq ft), can be sold for USD 16 billion. Thus, the Godrej group is sitting on an invisible cashpile that is envyof other Indian conglomerates.
