In the infrastructure space, WEL has agreed to acquire 49% stake in two NHAI Hybrid Annuity Model (HAM) projects from MBL Group, subject to necessary approvals and statutory compliances.

The company has the option to acquire the remaining 51% stake in these projects as and when the regulator (NHAI) permits. The consideration for the purchase of the remaining stake is fixed at Rs 24.5 crore.
