The Company's present areas of operations are categorized into three main segments, i.e. (i) Project Management Consultancy (PMC), including redevelopment of government properties, (ii) Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) and (iii) Real Estate Development.

NBCC acquired 100 per cent stake in Mini Ratna hospital consultancy firm Hospital Services Consultancy Corporation Limited (HSCC)  from Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on 6 November 2018.[3][4] The organization acquired over 51% stake in Hindustan Steelworks Construction Limited (HSCL), a PSU under the Steel Ministry in 2017.

NBCC is headquartered in New Delhi and it has 31 regional offices across India. The projects undertaken by the company are across India and in countries Iraq, Libya, Nepal, Mauritius, Turkey, Botswana, Maldives, Yemen, Oman and UAE.[5] The organization has executed several landmark projects covering the re-development of government properties, construction of roads, railway stations, Hospitals & Medical Colleges, Institutions, Offices, Bridges, and Industrial & Environmental Structures.

NBCC is designated as the implementing agency for executing projects under the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT), Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna (PMGSY), Solid Waste Management (SWM) and developmental work in North Eastern region.[6]

NBCC is also working as Project Management Consultant (PMC) for the redevelopment of Pragati Maidan project of India Trade Promotion Organisation.[7] A number of Central Government ministries and various State Governments have been utilizing the services of NBCC as their extended engineering arm.


NBCC was incorporated in 1960 as a wholly owned Government of India enterprise under the erstwhile Ministry of Works, Housing & Supply (MoWHS), which is now known as the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA).

In 1977, NBCC started its overseas operations.[8]

In 2007, NBCC paid a dividend to the Government of India for the first time and since then, it has been paying a dividend every year. In the year 2008, the Department of Public Enterprises of the Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises, through its office memorandum No. 9(8)/2008-GM dated 3 October 2008 accorded the approval of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs upgrading NBCC from a Schedule "B" public sector enterprise to a Schedule "A" public sector enterprise. Subsequently, on 14 October 2008, the NBCC was granted Schedule "A" PSU status.

NBCC launched an IPO in April 2012 and was listed in BSE and NSE. In September 2012, NBCC was granted the Mini Ratna- I status by the Government of India.

The Government of India granted the status of a 'Navratna Company' to NBCC with effect from 23 June 2014.[9][10] The status of a 'Navratna PSE' made NBCC eligible to invest up to Rs 1,000 crore without the requirement of explicit government approval.

In October 2014, NBCC set up its wholly owned subsidiary NBCC Services Limited (NSL)[11]. In 2018, NBCC’s order book had projects worth Rs.800 Billion. [12]

Business segments[edit]

  • Project Management Consultancy (PMC): NBCC majorly works as a consultant on projects from concept stage to completion & maintenance. The company earns 93% of its revenue[13] through consultation fees paid by the government body responsible for the project.[14]
