A very clear, but simple, mantra guides us at Duville:
provide the customer with more than they expect

We have not entered this business just to develop land. We have entered this business to develop our legacy.

Our foray into the industry has certainly been propelled by India’s own growth story, which has contributed to the escalating demand for commercial and residential developments. Especially when they are as well located as ours.

Our business model is based on two very important pillars:


Push boundaries of excellence but do not push boundaries of the law


Engage the best in trade to deliver beyond even their own expectations

Duville Estates is a privately held company, owned by Mr. Behram Dubash whose family has been actively running successful businesses across industries since 1810.

Its high benchmarks of ethics and value creation for its customers have survived till this day – over two centuries since the family established its shipping business in Mumbai.

Duville Estates continues this legacy of ethics, customer-centric practices and an uncompromising approach to quality that is resulting in new and equally enduring structures.
