Dr. K.P. Singh
...
Singh was born (August 15, 1931) into a Jat family of Bulandshahar in present-day Uttar Pradesh state of India. His father, Chaudhary Mukhtar Singh was an advocate by profession, so it was only natural that K.P. Singh was driven toward academics and, hence, the aim to make an appropriate career after completion of his studies. He graduated (Bachelors) in Science from the Meerut College (U.P.), and left for the UK to pursue aeronautical engineering. While in the UK, it so happened that he was selected to the prestigious Indian Army, by the British Officers Services Selection Board, UK - as a result he joined the Indian Military Academy at Dehradun (India).
His initial army days were restless as the engineer in him kept surfacing every now and then and he was constantly contemplating his exit from the army until the issue was settled by a Senior Army officer, Col. Baljit Singh. The seniors in the army had got wind of KP Singh's plan of quitting the Army and resuming his aeronautical engineering in London. Col. Singh summoned him and reminded him of the family history of serving the military as well as the stigma that haunts someone who had quit the army mid-way through his training. The meeting with this amiable senior army officer left an indelible mark on the young KP Singh, in that although the meeting was expected to bring at the least a reprimand - for Singh had also planned to run away from the military academy by boarding a train from the nearby railway station, in which case he would be violating the basic norms of the academy- but instead of cashiering the young man for his indiscretion, Col. Singh very politely, and articulately, brought forth the ideals of the services and their value to the nation as indeed the consequences if KP Singh had run-away, and impressed upon him to stay back. This is where KP Singh learnt his first lessons of man-management and the discipline that he said have helped him in business years later. Singh stayed back and served in the military, and was later on commissioned into The Deccan Horse -a renowned cavalry regiment of The Indian Army.
...
This plus the unwillingness of the farmer community in Gurgaon to sell their lands come what might dealt a huge blow to the plan of Singh to revive DLFs real estate business.
Disappointed and disheartened, and at the advice of his father-in-law, Raghvendra Singh, KP Singh had decided to sell his stake in DLF in 1975. His rendezvous with Col. Baljit Singh decades ago had also taught him yet another very important lesson of his life - that one should never run away from challenges in life. So, when friends and well-wishers from outside the family had him rethink about his plan to sell his shares, it was easy for him make the decision that was a life-changer for Singh himself along with hundreds of thousands of many others.
...
Singh says, "The Jantar Mantar gave me the inspiration that if the guy who conceived and made the Jantar Mantar centuries ago could be a forward-looking man, why is it that we can't be forward looking in our development and start to do something ahead of the time?"
...
Singh says it was more to do with some personal prejudice than anything else.
...
It was one of the largest IPOs in India at the time and was soon followed by an upsurge in the market capitalization of the company to a level of $24.5 billion, making Singh and his family one of the richest clans in the world. So much so, that in 2008, he was briefly the world's richest real estate tycoon.
...
K.P. Singh is married to Indira, the daughter of DLF founder, Chaudhary Raghvendra Singh.
...
K.P. Singh had run DLF with the belief that Corporate Social Responsibility is not just an add-on; rather its business and social commitment were mutually reinforcing and neither can be sustainable without the other. Therefore, he has ensured that DLF constantly endeavours to create sustainable economies to transform stagnant lives of the less fortunate people in the areas where DLF operates into active partnerships through synergized pro-active handholding in areas of infrastructure, education, training, health, and environment.

Mr. Singh has received many awards for his contribution towards the society:
