The company reported that India’s JMC Projects Ltd.  KEC International Ltd. And AFCONS Infrastructure Ltd have submitted their documents for qualification as EPC contractor through the EPC Tender for Overall Project Management, Detailed Engineering, Procurement and Construction.

The discounted loan agreement between the governments of Mongolia and India specifies that the general contractor must be a company registered in India.
