Awards Won By VIL India
Nagpur 24x7 is one of the splendid projects of Vishvaraj
Infrastructure Limited (VIL). Here are few things about the
project: The City – Nagpur the 3rd major city & winter
capital of Maharashtra state, Nagpur is India’s loath largest
city with a populace of over 2.5 million people. It became
the first city of its size in the nation to outsource its water
supply to a private operator under the PPP model for 25
years. The one big objective was to provide l00% safe
drinking water 24×7 to l00% of the population including the
slum-dwellers within 5 years. The second major objective
was to reduce Non Revenue Water below 25% in 10 years
time. The contract was awarded to Orange City Water
Limited — a 50:50 joint venture SPV company incorporated
with equal equity stake of Vishvaraj Environment Pvt. Ltd.
and Veolia Water of France. The project covers
management of the entire water cycle from production,
treatment (657 MLD), transport (2100 Kms of network),
storage and delivery to the last point of usage i.e. the
customers tap. This involves replacement of more than
3,00,00 house service connections, rehabilitation of
treatment facilities, service reservoirs and pipeline. Social
Inclusiveness was that every household including slums to
get individual continuous piped water supply connection.

Orange City Waters – Nagpur’s core Water Supply
Manager, has managed to bring some moments of proud

lean time. With New government initiative the PPP has again
come with better risk sharing matrix between private and
public. VIL India has been a proponent of PPP model, and
has established track record in Road and highways sector.
With Urban Infrastructure foray in Water, it is today the only
Indian Utility with ongoing projects in Water distribution as
well as Waste water treatment and Reuse.
Mr. Arun Lakhani lives by what he says “This award is the
recognition of my team’s hard work which put in their
efforts. It’s never a one person; it’s a team work – Satyajeet,
Suresh and all of them. My congratulations to them.” His
humility and respecting people has got him a far way.
Mr. Arun Lakhani goes on to say people are important to
every project. And if we take their views and opinions, it
benefits only only the citizens of the country but also India as
