Year 2011 begins at a low
 Contract allocations slowed down in January

 

 

The month of January 2011 witnessed only 48 contracts being awarded. The lowest figures both in terms of number of contracts awarded as well as worth of jobs involved when compared with the preceding four months (September - December 2010) statistics.

 

India based business houses bagged contracts worth Rs 14,603.38 crore, almost half the amount in comparison to December 2010. In December, a total of 72 contracts were amassed worth a sum of Rs 27,822 crore.

 

The third quarter (October - December 2010) had seen record rise followed by sharp fall and then recovery in contract finalisation activities. While, October 2010 saw record 90 contracts worth Rs 72,243 crore being firmed up, November saw the aggregate contract value dipping to Rs 14,947 crore. Contract awarding activities staged a recovery in December with 71 contracts worth Rs 27,822 crore being handed over by project promoters to Indian companies. The momentum seems to have lost once again in January 2011.

 

Of the 48 contracts awarded in January, eight were awarded by foreign conglomerates. KEC International was given a Rs 942-crore contract by Kazakhstan Electricity Grid Operating Company for the execution, including rehabilitation, of a total of 21 substations spread across the North East and South of Kazakhstan.
