The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) on Wednesday said it has debarred SNC Lavalin Infrastructure (erstwhile SPAN Consultant) from engagement in future NHAI projects for two years.

However, it failed to deliver as per the contract provisions which led to loss of time and increased costs, besides litigation. A show-cause notice was served to the firm on account of deficient services in consultancy services for feasibility report for the project.
