SPML Infra Ltd.

Dear esteemed shareholders,

My warm greetings to you all, on the occasion of 75 years of India’s independence. This year we are celebrating “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav” with a vision of building a new Aatm Nirbhar Bharat.

Indian businesses are gaining steady momentum with increase capital expenditure, capacity building, good demand, and government’s push for infrastructure, spending in water and renewable energy and the launch of Gati Shakti scheme to fast paced development. Tier II and tier III cities have become front runners in driving demand across sectors. We are entering an era of inclusive growth with bottom-up transformation.

The Government of India is taking every possible step to achieve rapid economic growth. In the last few years, it has increased the spending on infrastructure projects, making it the growth driver of country’s economy. This thrust to infrastructure development is also increasing employment opportunities

and creating demand for goods and services. With strategic planning and suitable policy reforms, government also hopes to make India a manufacturing hub, reducing the cost of logistics and making the produce more competitive. The average time for granting environmental clearances has reduced significantly from an average of more than 150 days in 2019 to less than 90 days, and in some sectors, even within 60 days. These efforts to streamline the tedious process of environmental clearances through digital intervention and transparent mechanism have been well received by the Industry.

This is a year to reset and resolve to move forward from the pandemic disruptions and meet the challenges that 2022 presents. The last two years have been a reckoning of sorts for our ability to confront problems and design and implement solutions. We must be more mindful of the goals we set, the approaches we use to reach them and how the outcomes will affect all people across the nation.


The Opportunities

For infrastructure development companies and project professionals, this means drawing upon an entire set of capabilities. We need to supercharge our creativity and innovative thinking, adapt to unusual circumstances and find extraordinary solutions and understand the context of our projects for making human life comfortable. By doing so, we can make ideas a reality and solve India’s most pressing problems, water sustainability.

I believe that the future isn’t something we are waiting for happening. The future is the reality we decide to create and execute with precision and planning. While saying so, my belief system says that every person has a significant impact that they can contribute to a team, to a project and towards nation building regardless of how big or small the role is.

The Hon’ble Prime Minister has made the path breaking announcement of investing INR 100 lakh crore towards infrastructure development under the national infrastructure master plan thus providing an integrated and holistic pathway to Indian economy. We, at SPML Infra are with the Government on this initiative to be a trusted partner in developing robust infrastructure solutions that will make India emerge as a nation with having globally competitive and strong economy.

Water sector having a critical importance for India’s development agenda, is the main focus of the government. The ambitious Jal Jeevan Mission schemes which envisage making piped drinking water available to all Indian households by 2024 have been provided with a massive INR 6.47 Lakh crore budget. Water infrastructure is a harbinger of growth for all other sectors and our presence in this sector has further been strengthened that will enable SPML Infra to receive and execute large and complex projects with commitment and dedication.

Project Implementation

SPML Infra being a project driven organization, everything that we do is a project – whether it’s a one-day,10-day,six-months or year long. We have developed dedicated team of professionals and project managers to make sure that the entire process of project execution from bidding to design and implementation is streamlined, duly supported with technological intervention. At SPML Infra, we are trying to make sure each project that we undertake and execute should create value for the future. If we don’t consider the people who are going to be using these solutions, we are going to end up with infrastructure that doesn’t fit us, and this is something that we have to focus making it people centric with long term sustainability.


Technology has become a major game changer in every walk of life. The pandemic has opened the doors to a lot of things that earlier we didn’t think could have been done virtually. From remote work culture to online presence and science based solutions that can produce reliable and positive changes. The technology implementation has been expedited after covid disruptions and SPML Infra has implemented advance

technologies and contemporary solutions to streamline the project planning, execution, monitoring and overall functioning of the organization which is being coordinated and controlled through technology. The modern management system, automation and technological intervention in our projects are helping us to have better control over the challenging situations while adhering to quality, cost and time management.


At SPML Infra, we have developed a corporate culture that embraces different perspectives and ideas that will enable creative thinking and adaptability and result in improved business outcomes. The organization that started in 1981 is continually expanding to newer areas and we are getting more representation from women and socially deprived section of the society making an inclusive work culture that goes beyond simple growth to have people around who understand our vision.
