CRISIL Research Webconference – Roads sector: Green shoots of recovery? Dec 9, 2014, 4pm IST

In the past, many National Highway projects have failed to take off the ground, marred by issues such as delays in land acquisition and clearances. Every 9 out of 10 projects completed in the past 5 years have witnessed delays. The delays, and the resulting cost overrun have impacted the developer cash flows and returns significantly. Also, it has hampered the overall execution for National Highways, which remains out of grasp of government targets. However, recently the government and the NHAI have implemented a slew of measures directed at improving implementation of projects. Will these measures be successful in reducing delays and improving implementation pace for National Highway projects?

To discuss on-the-ground impact of the reform measures taken by the government, CRISIL Research invites you to a web conference titled “Roads sector: Green shoots of recovery?”

The web conference will be followed by an interactive Q&A session where CRISIL experts will address the following questions:

  • What has been the past experience for project implementation? How have time and cost overrun impacted project returns?
  • What steps has the NHAI / government taken to address the delays?
  • Do we expect these changes to bring down delays for national highway projects?
  • How do we see awarding and implementation for National Highway projects over the long term?
