The road PPP project will be developed in build - operation - transfer (BOT - Toll) mode on a design, build, finance, operation and maintenance (DBFOM) basis. The contract will have a period of 24 years.
The company has offered a premium of Rs810 million (US$12.8 million) to the NHAI, increasing by 5% YoY. The total project investment is estimated at Rs26.5 billion (US$412.9 million).
