ICRA has withdrawn ratings assigned to the borrowing programme of MEP Infrastructure Developers. The agency has withdrawn the rating for the company's bank limit of ₹50 crore.

MEP made the disclosure to the stock exchanges saying, this was due to slower than anticipated progress in the six under-construction Hybrid Annuity Mode (HAM) road portfolio.

HAM model was approved by the government to increase the pace of award and construction of national highways apart from de-risking the developers and lenders from inherent shortcomings associated with conventional Build Operate and Transfer.

At 11.30 am, MEP shares were trading at ₹27.25, or 8.75 per cent lower.
