US real estate business tycoon Donald Trump plans to put up a 22-storied residential twin tower project in Pune, marking his entry into India.

"Trump Organisation's first project in India, Trump Towers Pune, will epitomise inspired living and timeless elegance," Donald Trump, said on the micro blogging website Twitter yesterday, to announce his entry into India's booming real estate market.

"A pair of sleek ultra-modern towers that redefine the Pune skyline, Trump Towers Pune marks the entry of the Trump brand of luxury and elegance in India," the company said on its website.
