- He said,”We are getting 1% surcharge on stamp duty. We are getting 10% supervision charges from National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) for constructing the Wardha Road double-decker flyover. The food court space at Khapri station has been sold to a private party. NHAI has purchased four floors in our under construction Airport Metro station. Plus, we get 4% royalty on use of Bureau Veritas construction materials laboratory located on our premises.”
