Sterlite Tech has won Rs 15.12 billion worth MahaNet-I project for the implementation of BharatNet-II in Maharashtra.

As a leading implementation partner, Sterlite Tech will connect 4,045 gram panchayats across eight districts of Maharashtra, impacting over 7.5 million citizens.

Sterlite Tech was associated with BharatNet phase I, and will now partner with Maharashtra for BharatNet phase II to enable integrated digital services to the last-mile.
