The company recently made headlines after securing a Rs 298 crore contract from Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL). Tejas Network will supply, install, commission, and support the company's optical networking equipment as part of the contract for the pan-India expansion of PGCIL's telecom backbone and access network.
