Shares of PNC Infratech jumped another 3% as the markets opened on Tuesday as the construction company announced bagging another government contract.
What Happened: The company on Tuesday announced that it was declared the lowest bidder for another National Highways Authority of India’s (NHAI) highway project. The project is for the construction of a 6-lane Greenfield Varanasi-Ranchi-Kolkata Highway from Pachmon village to Anarbansalea village.
