SN Subrahmanyan, MD & CEO
Few can contend the juggernaut of what is now India’s largest infrastructure company. Larsen & Toubro has played a significant role in most ambitious projects that the government has announced. In June this year, L&T’s order book stood at a whopping Rs 2.62 lakh crore! In April, L&T named SN Subrahmanyan as MD & CEO, bringing in a change of guard after 18 years.
Recently, the Transportation Infrastructure and Water Effluent Treatment business of L&T has jointly bagged the largest order worth Rs 1,123 crore for the design and construction of smart trunk infrastructure. Its Hydrocarbon division has secured a Rs 1,150-crore contract from ONGC pertaining to a Daman Development project.
Its defence business is booming too. The conglomerate has chalked up plans to set up its missile-integrated facility at an investment of around ₹500 crore, in a JV with French company MBDA. L&T has the capability to build a full-fledged battle tank, which will be built at the company’s new factory at Hazira in Gujarat.
