It is a provider of engineering and construction (E&C) services for developing power, infrastructure, road and metro projects.

Through SPVs, it has also executed a portfolio of infrastructure projects like Mumbai's metro railroad project on build, own, operate, and transfer (BOOT) basis; nine road projects on a build, operate and transfer (BOT) basis.
