Infra pipeline: Only a fifth of large projects ready for tenders: report

As many as 6,633 projects involving potential investments of Rs 128 lakh crore over a six-year period through FY25 are showcased under the government’s National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP), but only a fraction of the large projects is ready for tenders.

According to a research report by Emkay Global that reviewed the top 1,000 projects accounting for over 80% of the pipeline value, only a fifth are “close to tender-ready stage”. Nevertheless, there are “niche opportunities” for regional road EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) companies and metro rail contractors in the near term, while water, railways and affordable housing segments offer longer-term opportunities, the report says, after collating data from the dashboard for the NIP.
