Why This Seminar

It is a challenging responsibility to manage EPC/ Turnkey Projects for Infrastructure Development in any Country. Many International Contract models issued by FIDIC, NEC, JCT, & ICE or equivalent are utilized for such projects. Recently FIDIC & NEC have issued their latest editions after a gap of 10 to 15 years. These Contract models are revised keeping in mind Global trends in EPC/Turnkey Projects.

Indian Govt. has also decided to go for EPC Contract Model for all new Infrastructure Projects. NITI AAYOG has even published in March,2018 draft model for Infrastructure Projects in India on similar lines but  with some Clauses which protect Employer’s interest and transfers substantial risks to the Contractor to manage.

All these domestic & International trends are keenly studied and debated, by all the stakeholders like Employers, Contractors. Consultants and Government. Indian participants should understand main provisions of various contract models and the risk profiles of the projects awarded by Govt. or Public bodies in different sectors of Infrastructure. They should keep in mind the Legal and Contractual framework applicable in India and how the Dispute resolution mechanism will work whenever a claim or dispute is to be settled.
