New Delhi, Nov 10 (UNI) A South Korean company is likely to bid for an infrastructure project in Patna, a senior government official of Bihar said today.
''A South Korean company has shown interest in Boring Road flyover project which is at present under the government consideration. The company is in talks with us and within two months, the things may take a final shape, and it may bid for the tender to be floated for the project'' Bihar Rajya Pul Nirman Nigam Ltd (BRPNN) Chairman Pratyaya Amrit told UNI here.
Asked how much Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) the state is targeting to attract, Mr Amrit said, ''Japanese and Korean companies have shown interests in our projects. But right now, there are no concrete FDI proposals with us. Bihar is developing and once, we are through with the inclusive infrastructure development, we expect considerable FDI inflows in the state.'' The BRPNN is working with various private players such as Afcons Infrastructure, Gammon Infrastructure Projects Ltd and Vasishta Constructions to construct and maintain road and bridge projects in Bihar and the Nigam has taken up five big 'challenging' projects in the state.
However, the BPRNN is not satisfied with the way CPWD and IRCON are working in the state and the Nigam is coordinating with the Bihar Government for better monitoring of the prevailing scenario, Mr Amrit apprised.
