2. The background facts are that an Agreement dated 29 th January, 2004 was
entered into between the parties whereby the work of Development of
OMP 260/2015 Page 1 of 18
Adequate Road Connectivity to Paradip Port (4-laning of Chandikhol-
Paradip km 0.0 to km 77.0 Section of NH-5A) in the State of Orissa
(Contract Package-OR-PARADIP) was awarded by NHAI to HCC.
3. It is not in dispute that the work could not be completed within the
stipulated time limit of thirty six months. HCC, from time to time, applied
for extension of time (‘EOT’) on account of ‘compensation events’ which it
notified to the Engineer. However, NHAI was not in a position to hand over
the land for the Chandikhol Intersection.
