  17. Learnings from our experience Scope for Improvement OK 1. Pre Award Activities 1.2. Surveying 1.3. Estimation 1.4. Tendering & Award Placement 2. Post - Award Activities 2.1. Project Management 2.2. Engineering Activities

  18. Learnings from our experience Scope for Improvement OK 2.3. Field Activities 2.3.1. Preparation of Ground Profile 2.3.2. Tower Spotting 2.3.3. Foundation 2.3.4. Site Store Management 2.3.5. Tower Erection : Technical : Safety 2.3.6. Stringing : Technical : Safety

  19. To sum up… This is the first transmission project in Private sector, which has already set precedence for other projects to follow.
