Both projects are for the six-lane Greenfield Varanasi – Ranchi – Kolkata Highway and under the Bharatmala Pariyojana in the state of Bihar. The projects are to be completed in two years and operated for the next 15 years.

The project seems to have provided some impetus to the company shares that have crashed around 11% in the past month as its Q3 earnings missed expectations. However, brokerages have remained positive on the stock. Axis Direct, HDFC Securities, and ICICI Direct all maintained their ‘buy’ after the company’s Q3 print as all the firms see an over 25% upside in the stock.
