HCC has received Rs. 1,624 crore till date under the CCEA's initiative to release 75% of arbitral awards against bank guarantees.
Mr. Arjun Dhawan, Director & Group Chief Executive Officer, said, "We have successfully managed to lower our debt and reduce finance costs, despite the banking crisis that has gripped the country. This has however dampened our ability to grow and allow for a high-performance execution of our order backlog. While our commitments on the cost side of the balance sheet have accelerated due to recent legislative and regulatory requirements, our substantial receivables from Government Agencies continue to lag, which have created a working capital strain. HCC is taking the necessary measures to address this by not only strengthening its balance sheet, but also participating in the robust infrastructure spend in India. These measures will, among other things, include the monetisation of non-core assets and accelerating the receipt of our dues from clients."
