The net profit for the FY 2011-12 on standalone basis decreased by Rs 41.57 crores to Rs 34.58 crores from Rs 76.15 crores in the FY 2010-11.

Ansal API has at present many projects under various stages of implementation across residential, commercial, retail and hospitality segments, as well as SEZs, IT/ITES and industrial parks, and, social infrastructures - such as educational institutions, hospitals and clubs. The majority of the projects are located in the NCR and the states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab. The company has 18 integrated townships, including two hi-tech townships. The company also has extensive land reserves of approximately 9,700 acres out of which about 40 per cent is strategically located in the NCR and the rest are in key cities of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab.

Ansal API takes its social responsibility very seriously. Kusumanjali Foundation, a non-profit making company  is promoting literary works of budding writers in Hindi and other regional languages. The Chiranjiv Charitable Trust (CCT), set up by the Ansals in 1976, currently runs schools in Palam Vihar and Sushant Lok in Gurgaon. Currently over 6000 students are studying in these schools.
