One of the key outcomes of this partnership will be the development of predictive analytics algorithms. These algorithms, leveraging integrated geotechnical data, will forecast potential risks and provide early warning systems specifically tailored for tunneling projects. Such proactive measures are expected to substantially mitigate time and cost overruns during project execution.

On the occasion of MoU signing, Sh. RK Gupta, CGM(Civil), Sh. Jitender Yadav, GM (Finance), Sh. Hemant Kumar Shaklya, GM (Civil), Sh. Akshay Acharya, GM (Geology) from SJVN and Professor AK Verma from IIT Patna were also present. SJVN and IIT Patna are committed to driving sustainable development and technological excellence through this strategic partnership.
