Varun Jain, Council Member, CII Delhi State, and Director, PPI Pvt. Ltd. said, “Encouraging the adoption of world-class technologies for speedy implementation of infrastructure projects is the current need of the State. EXCON with the presence of world-class players in the construction equipment sector, will not only deliver the best-in-class technologies along with cost-effective solutions but will also bring more awareness amongst all stakeholders on the latest developments in CE Industry."

“The allocation of Rs.20,000 crore in the Union Budget for PM Gati Shakti - multi-modal connectivity for the States with focus on Roads, Railways, Airports, Ports and Waterways besides expansion of 25,000 km of National Highway Network in 2022-23 would give tremendous push for infrastructure development in the country,”said Kaustubh Prasad, Member, CII Delhi Panel on Real Estate, Urban Development and Infrastructure, and Managing Director, Sudyog Infra Projects Pvt.
