IRB Infrastructure Developers Ltd has informed BSE that the National Highways Authority of India ("NHAI") had issued Letter of Award ("LOA") on January 05, 2010 to the Company for the Project of Four Laning of Goa/ Karnataka Border to Panaji - Goa stretch of NH-4A from Km 84.000 to Km 153.070 in the State of Goa on BOT Toll Basis on DBFO pattern (the "Project"). The Company had subsequently incorporated Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) i.e. IRB Goa Tollway Pvt. Ltd. - wholly-owned Subsidiaries of the Company for implementation of this Project. IRB Goa Tollway Pvt. Ltd. had executed Concession agreement with the NHAI in February 2010 and subsequently the Project had also achieved financial closure in March 2010. Construction period of the Project was 30 months.

However, NHAI could not provide necessary Land for implementation of the Project. Considering substantial delay in providing the Land, the Company had removed the Project from its Consolidated Order Book as on September 30, 2011 as a measure of Good Corporate Governance and accordingly modified Order book was represented in the presentation uploaded on the Companys website.

Now, the Company have received a formal letter from NHAI informing the Company, termination of this concession agreement of the Project due to their inability to provide necessary Land for implementation of the Project. In this regard, IRB Goa Tollway Pvt. Ltd. will claim compensation as per Termination payment provisions of the Concession Agreement.
