Over the last year, National Buildings Construction Corporation (NBCC) has secured some big-ticket projects including redevelopment of exhibition centre of ITPO for Rs 2,149 crore and AIIMS redevelopment works project worth...

National Buildings Construction Corporation (NBCC) is under the administrative control of Ministry of Urban Development and is present in three main segments -- Project Management Consultancy (PMC), real estate development and EPC Contracting.
On a possible Speaking about acquisition of Hindustan Steelworks Construction Ltd (HSCL), Mittal said this would allow the company to enter into the steel vertical where it has no presence at present.  He added that excess land parcels available with HSCL shall be conveniently monetised by the company to pay off the former's bank loans not covered by the government grant.

The Real Estate segment of the PSU which came into being in 1988, mainly executing commercial real estate projects has undergone a sea change operation wise.
NBCC’s success in implementation of the government’s New Moti Bagh Re-development Project, has earned it a huge dividend in the form of awarding of another Rs.5000 crore project in similar lines, named - East Kidwai Nagar Re-development (New Delhi) to the Company which is under implementation at present.
Apart from redevelopment, the other category of the real estate also holds a great promise for the future of the PSU as it has about 30 residential and commercial real estate projects presently going on at various locations of the country and more are coming up with huge investments.
NBCC has recently taken over Kolkata-based Hindustan Steelworks Constructions Ltd (HSCL), a loss-making PSU struggling to repay massive debt to the government and banks.

HSCL, which reported a net loss of Rs 8 crore in FY15 on a turnover of Rs 1,520 crore, owes Rs 1,475 crore to the government, thanks to the latter funding the PSU’s 2001-03 voluntary retirement scheme.
