According to the statement, L&T's second project within the $438.5m kitty relates to the development of India's tallest government office building. 

Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) is L&T's client on the fast-track project.

He was also identified by judges as having improved company-wide operational efficiencies, as well as the productivity of his colleagues.
