Construction company Shapoorji Pallonji has outbid L&T for the construction contract of the proposed ₹600 crore-Telangana Secretariat complex.
Following the technical and financial bids, Shapoorji Pallonji has been chosen L1, according to sources. Of the several companies who evinced interest in the bidding process being handled by the Roads and Buildings department, it received bids from construction majors L&T and Shapoorji Pallonji at the end of the deadline.
The department had to reschedule the tender process couple of times because of technicalities as well as the floods in the GHMC area.
