We are thankful to Govt. of Gujarat for recognizing our execution works and trusting us to do and deliver more in achieving the ambitious target of providing water to the scarce region in Gujarat. Our experience in executing urban water supply projects in different states has given us advantage of getting the water distribution and sewerage management project for Ludhiana Smart City. The water supply augmentation projects in Manipur will help us in making inroads to more water projects in north eastern states where our company is already present with a number of power transmission & distribution projects. With our strong execution capabilities and using latest technological innovations, we are confident to deliver these projects on time to the complete satisfaction of our esteemed clients.
