These roads are operated and maintained pursuant to concession rights granted by the NHAI and are owned and operated by the Project SPVs, which are currently wholly owned by G R Infraprojects Limited.

The infrastructure sector comprises roads, railways, power, ports, telecommunication, and civil aviation among others. India has the second-largest road network in the world, spanning a total of 6.33 million km. In the Union Budget for Fiscal Year 2024-25, a total of approximately ₹2.8 trillion has been budgeted for the MoRTH (Ministry of Road Transport & Highways)

● All of the company’s revenue from InvIT Assets is dependent on receiving consistent annuity income from NHAI 

● If they fail to maintain the roads constructed by them pursuant to and as per the relevant contractual requirements, they may be subject to penalties or even termination of contracts, which may have a material adverse effect on the reputation, business, financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows.
