"We have purchased 300 acre land from Jaypee Group on Yamuna Expressway for more than Rs 1,500 crore. The agreement between the two companies has already been signed," Gaursons India Managing Director Manoj Gaur told reporters.
Jaypee Group has about 4,000 acre land alongside Yamuna Expressway, which was built by them only.
Gaur said the company has already paid about 25 percent of the total amount of the deal.
