Sky Light Hospitality's regulatory filings show Rs 10 crore received from DLF as advance in 2008-09, the year in which it paid the second instalment on the Manesar land.
Separately, another Rs 15 crore advance was received from DLF for the Faridabad land deal, which later fell through.
By 2009-10, Rs 50 crore had been received, separate from the Rs 10 crore received earlier and which apparently remained with Sky Light Hospitality till 2010-11.
While Rs 15 crore was returned on account of the abortive Faridabad deal, Sky Light Hospitality was now cash-rich - in less than two years of Mr Vadra having got going in real estate with a single transaction.
The company would now go on to fund Mr Vadra's other real-estate firms, investments in high-end apartments, and other transactions which would follow thick and fast.
