Mr. Virendra D. Mhaiskar, Chairman & Managing Director, IRB Infrastructure Developers Ltd. said, “It was yet another remarkable year as we clocked 18% revenue growth, even with transfer of seven operating assets to IRB InvIT last year, and successful completion of Pune Solapur concession this year. We started our first HAM project in Gujarat, and construction is going on full swing across projects.
With almost Rs. 11,000 Crs of order book we have strong visibility over the following two years, which will keep improving with the addition of new projects. We expect the pace of awards to strengthen with elections now being over and a large number of projects already lined up by NHAI. A very welcoming move from the Authority includes an increased proportion of projects being considered on the BOT model, which we will continue to participate as the opportunity unfolds.”
