IL&FS Transportation Networks (ITNL), which got listed on the National Stock Exchange today, has said that it is eyeing revenue of Rs1,300 crore from road and transport projects over the next three years.
“We have orders worth Rs12,000 crore till date and will be executing them over three years. We are eyeing Rs1,300 crore revenue from these project orders,” ITNL managing director, K Ramchand, told reporters on the sidelines of the listing ceremony here.

ITNL is one of the leading private sector build-operate-transfer (BOT) road operators in India. The company is engaged in the development, operation and maintenance of national and State highways, roads, flyovers and bridges across India.
“We want to diversify into the urban infra space on the railways side. In our current portfolio we have completed eight projects and 11 are under construction,” Mr Ramchand said.
