Punj Lloyd today announced that it has bagged Rs 120 crore contract from the government for the supply of full-body truck scanners.
"Punj Lloyd has won a prestigious order worth Rs 120 crore for the supply and commission of five full body truck scanners (FBTS) from the Ministry of Home Affairs," the conglomerate said.
The FBTS can locate hidden arms, ammunition, explosives, detonators and IEDs. The scanner can also detect fake currency and narcotics.
The company, in a filing to BSE, said that with the bagging of this project it will be the first firm operating in the private sector to install X-Ray based scanners at the borders of the country.
"This is our first order in homeland security and is extremely significant as it will enhance the national security ... by fortifying our borders against illegal activities," company's chairman Atul Punj said adding that the scanners will be manufactured at company's unit at Malanpur.
