BHEL was established in 1964 and is one of India’s largest engineering and manufacturing company with business interests in power and infrastructure sectors. The company has a large land bank of about 14000 acres and is inviting Expression of Interests, she said. It has also been in talks with several international players, the Executive Editor added.
This land parcel will be used by BHEL for cluster development. Government has said that it will not allow any import of goods for procuring capital goods and manufacturing power equipment. BHEL is a strong player in this space, she added.
Now that, there will be import restrictions, BHEL is likely to gain. The PSU Company has been tying-up with international players with a cluster-based approach to manufacture critical components.
Most of the critical components which are currently being imported from China and other countries will now be made in India, she said. The government’s focus is quite clear on this and there may likely be a policy forthcoming on this going forward, Swati further said.
Today, BHEL share price was trading around Rs 38.20 on BSE, up by over 3 per cent from the previous close.
