During his business career Sanjay was honored with several prestigious awards and notable amongst them are - National Leadership Award for Real Estate and Infrastructure, Indira Gandhi Excellence Award, Indian Achievers Award for Excellence in Real Estate and Infrastructure and the Bharat Gaurav Award for Life Time Achievement.

In one of the training sessions a few participants came to him and urged him to conduct training programs specifically designed to cater to the needs of Real Estate Developers. The idea of Executive Education through Management Development Programs (MDP) is therefore an outcome of this suggestion given by fellow Developers.

Sanjay is also a qualified Arbitrator and is an em-panelled arbitrator on the Indian Council of Arbitration. He has a certificate of achievement in ‘Public Speaking Mastery’ from the Dale Carnegie Academy.
