ICICI Direct Report

The roads and highways sector has demonstrated strong resilience to the Covid-19 disruptions with robust ordering activities (National Highways Authority of India awarded 1,330 kilometres in H1 FY21; up 1.6 times YoY) and improving construction pace.

Additionally, measures such as:

  1. Shifting from milestone-based billing to monthly billing

  2. Releasing of retention money/performance security in proportion to execution

  3. Faster resolution of disputes through reconciliation

  4. Revision of model concession agreement for hybrid annuity mode and build-operate-transfer projects ensured continuance of gained momentum and safeguarded contractor’s interest in the uncertain times.
