Chairman & Managing Director


A Soldier Saint


War trophy : A T -59 Pakistani tank captured in enemy territory & driven back personally by Capt. (then) NARNE RANGA RAO.during the 1971 INDO - PAK  WAR.


A true soldier, a visionary, a great leader and a Gandhian, Colonel [Retd] Narne Ranga Rao was born in the well-known family of Narnes of Andhra Pradesh in 1943. His grandfather was honored with the title of  “Rao Bahadur” and his father served in the Indian Army during World War II. In due course of time he completed his graduation in engineering and joined the Indian Army in 1964 in the Corps of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. He was fortunate to have firsthand war experience in the 1971 Indo-Pak War.

Having experienced the traumas and horrors of active combat, he views life from a special perspective, based on extra special relationships that develop between comrades-in-arms during war. He had 23 years of rich and varied experience, including combat experience, in the Corps of EME of the Indian Army before premature retirement in 1987. A thorough professional, he was recommended for the award of “VIR CHAKRA” for showing exemplary courage during the 1971 Indo-Pak War. He witnessed the selfless devotion to duty of his fellow servicemen, who made the supreme sacrifice to safeguard the motherland. He made his immediate resolve, right on the battlefield, to do everything possible towards rehabilitation and welfare of his brothers-in-arms and their dependents.

It was this experience and resolve, which prompted him to float “Gunrock Enclave Co-operative Housing Society” in 1977 while he was posted at MCEME Secunderabad, to provide house plots to the defence personnel. The 36 acres of land was distributed among 228 defence personnel at Rs. 53/- per square yard, inclusive of all development works, i.e., water, electricity, sewerage, avenue plantation etc., with adequate open spaces for gardens, recreation facilities, etc. The cost of this land today is a whopping Rs. 42,000/- per square yard !!! more than 800 times in approximately 30 years.

The news of the success of this venture travelled fast in the defence circles and colleagues requested him to take up the job of providing house plots to more defence personnel, who had no time of their own to search and purchase house plots during their short leave periods. Colonel [Retd] Narne Ranga Rao finally bowed to the wishes of his colleagues and took premature retirement from the army to devote himself fully for the welfare of defence personnel by providing them house plots.
