The HCC-AL FARA’A bagged the ₹484-crore contract for building elevated Metro stations on the Vanaz to Ramwadi corridor, which is going to be constructed by the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (Maha-Metro).
HCC and AL FARA’A are currently undertaking a joint venture with HCC as the lead partner, owning 51 per cent of shares.
