The Delhi Noida Toll Bridge comprises the Delhi Noida Toll Bridge, adjoining roads and other related further expected to double by 2021facilities. The Delhi Noida Bridge (DND Flyway) is an eight lane tolled facility across the Yamuna river, connecting Noida toSouth Delhi. It is 552.5mts long with a 27 lane toll collection plaza at the Noida end. It has a maximum capacity of 222,000vehicles per day. The company has further added the Mayur Vihar Link, which was opened to traffic in January 2008 and is thequickest route between Mayur Vihar (on the Noida side) and South Delhi. The vehicular profile on the bridge includes 75%cars, 22% two-wheelers and 3% commercial vehicles. Assured IRR of 20% The concession agreement between the company, the promoter and NOIDA provides for an initial concession period based on project costsof 30 years and assures a 20% return on total capital outlay, not just on equity. If the developer is unable to make the stated highly in favor of the companyIRR, the concession period is to be increased by 2 years at a time. The increase in toll charges is linked to the Consumer PriceIndex. In order to ensure project viability, the company is also allotted development rights for land on both sides of NTB,subject to approvals from the relevant authorities.

The implementation of planned development in Noida and Greater Noida islikely to receive further impetus due to development of the Yamuna Expressway and real estate projects associated with it. Although the DND Flyway caters specifically to traffic between Noida/Mayur Vihar and South Delhi, it continues tocompete with two toll free bridges which cross the Yamuna River, namely, Nizamuddin Bridge and Okhla Bridge. Themanagement expects that the line extension of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, which currently caters to commuters travelingbetween Central Delhi and Noida, will not affect the bridge Page | 2
