Domestic & Overseas Orders


Awarding of project contracts by promoters to consultants, contractors, etc. is one of the major landmarks in the project implementation process.


ProjectsToday has been monitoring such developments at a micro level since the last two years. From this issue onwards, we will be listing out major contracts awarded and orders bagged by companies on a regular basis. We will also provide a periodic sector-wise analysis of such developments. We believe that such an analysis along with the developments in project tendering will provide a clear insight into the ongoing projects implementation activities in India. Along with project related contracts we will also list out major contracts awarded for supplying equipment.
