India : Astitva bags First IGBC Green Homes Gold certification


Located in Kankurgachi, a neighborhood in eastern Kolkata, Astitva has been given the first Green Homes gold certification by Indian Green Building Council for meeting the standards of energy efficient buildings and the reduction of electrical energy demand.

Within this certification, it is determined that the Astitva projects have fully achieved the IGBC’s requirements including water and energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and innovation and development.

Along with partner MCK, Primarc Group has introduced eco-friendly apartments in the city. Astitva applies several green features such as reducing water and energy consumption, enhancing the air quality, conservation of scarce national resources, dual fired eco-friendly DG set, on-site rain water harvesting system and on-site solar panels in efforts to achieve renewable energy generation.

Astitva has also optimized the daylight use and introduced high COP VRV for air conditioning to save electricity bills for its residents. This project is also completed with a well designed central landscape garden.

According to Siddhart Pansari, Managing Director of Primarc Projects, the Astitva projects will set a new standard for responsible luxury living. By applying high energy and water efficiency standards, he also believes that home owners can be encouraged to be more concerned around an eco-friendly environment.
