We plan to acquire seven more road assets, subject to requisite regulatory and unitholder approvals, of which six are based on NHAI’s Hybrid Annuity Model where the revenues are not contingent on traffic and hence would contribute to a higher revenue stability and yields. Investment in our people and culture has been one of the cornerstones of success. This unwavering focus has earned us the prestigious certification as a `Great Place to Work’, a recognition we are particularly proud of. As we look ahead to FY 2025, our vision remains clear: to be India’s leading InvIT.”
