A team led by ED-Ramagundam & Telangana Dr P P Kulkarni inspected the construction site and appreciated the team for achieving the target on schedule on 31st July 2019.
 
Being a demonstration project, the team carried out around 300 trials of concrete mixes and 20 trials of process optimization and completed the 500m length of Geopolymer road and thus achieved the MoU target.
