But it took quite a long time to bring his dream into reality as he thought it might not be successful at that point of time. In 2003 this group was successful with its new venture CMR shopping mall which was first mall in Vizag. He then gained confidence that he can put his idea into reality and it is then he communicated about his thought.
* DEFINITION PHASE:
