IL&FS has syndicated the entire debt and United Bank of India is the leader of the consortium of lenders for both the SPVs.

The projects undertaken by Gayatri Projects Ltd-led consortium are Hyderabad expressways pvt ltd (HEPL) and Cyberabad expressways pvt ltd (CEPL) with a project costs of Rs 430.96 crore and Rs 501.75 crore respectively.

The construction period for both the HEPL & CEPL is 2 years and six months. HUDA will pay a semi-annual annuity of Rs 30.49 crore to HEPL during the annuity period of 12 years six months while the semi-annuity amount is pegged at Rs 39.50 crore in case of CEPL for the similar period.
