MUMBAI (ANI) – The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments) has announced it will invest $297 million in the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI).  

The proceeds will be used to acquire seven brownfield toll roads, currently owned by NHAI, as part of Government of India’s National Monetisation Pipeline.

Following this investment, CPP Investments will continue to hold 25% of the units in NHIT. CPP Investments’ total investment in NHIT will increase to C$614 million.

“India remains a key market for CPP Investments and infrastructure is vital to the country’s economic growth. Our follow-on investment in NHIT deepens our commitment to this highly scalable platform, which has an important role to play in the continued expansion of the Indian road network,” said James Bryce, Managing Director, Head of Infrastructure, CPP Investments. “We are confident that this investment will continue to deliver high-quality infrastructure across India while generating strong risk-adjusted returns for the CPP Fund.”
