Road developer MEP Infrastructure and Projects Ltd on Thursday said it has signed a non-binding term sheet to sell six hybrid annuity model (HAM) projects to Cube Highways and Infrastructure Pte. Ltd for ₹450 crore.
Under the HAM model, the government commits up to 40% of the project cost and hands it over to a developer, who has to fund the balance 60% with debt and equity.
