Ashoka Buildcon has successfully achieved early completion of electrifying the villages of Munger district in Patna, Bihar. This project has once again underscored the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) strength of the company. The electrification project is part of 'Deen Dayal Upadhyay Rural Electrification Scheme', where Ashoka Buildcon was given the contract of electrifying the villages of Munger district by the Bihar State Power (Holding) Co. The deadline for completion i.e August 20, 2016 was extremely challenging, yet the company was able to complete the task well before deadline. Out of the 27 districts, where projects are being executed by various contractors under this scheme, the Munger project in South Bihar is the first to be completed, that too ahead of schedule.
The scheme is very important for several such villages in Bihar that have never been electrified even after so many years of independence. With the completion of this Project, Munger district has been declared the first, fully electrified district in the state of Bihar.
Ashoka Buildcon builds and operates roads and bridges in India on a build, operate and transfer (BOT) basis. It currently operates one of the highest numbers of toll-based BOT projects in India.
