J Kumar Emerges as Lowest Bidder for Mumbai’s Dahisar – DN Nagar Line

As per various industry sources, J Kumar Infraprojects Ltd. has emerged as the lowest bidder for constructing both packages of the elevated 18.6 km Dahisar – DN Nagar section of Mumbai Metro’s Line 2!

To recap this line’s history: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation was entrusted with executing this line in December 2015 and had invited bids from infrastructure companies for constructing two elevated sections in January:

• Package 1: Contract: DMRC/MU/LINE2/AC/01

Part design and construction of viaduct and 8 elevated stations at Anand Nagar, Rushi Sankul, I C Colony, Eksar, Don Bosco, Shimpoli, Mahavir Nagar and Kamraj Nagar (excluding architectural finishing and pre-engineered steel roof structure of stations) from chainage 192.5m to 8292.178 m (i.e. end of Kamraj Nagar station, DN Nagar end) of Dahisar (East) – D N Nagar Corridor of Mumbai Metro Rail Project

• Package 2: Contract: DMRC/MU/LINE2/AC/02

Part design and construction of elevated viaduct and 8 elevated stations at Charkop, Malad Metro, Kasturi Park, Bangur Nagar, Goregaon, Adarsh Nagar, Shastri Nagar and DN Nagar (excluding architectural finishing and pre-engineered steel roof structure) from chainage 8292.178 ((i.e. end of Kamraj Nagar station, DN Nagar end) to 18189.020 including viaduct & ramp for depot entry of Dahisar (East) – D N Nagar Corridor of Mumbai Metro Rail Project.

Here’s a map which shows the scope of both packages:

AECOM was recently awarded the Detailed Design Consultant (DDC) contract for this line.

While the northernmost station in the scope of package 1 is Anand Nagar, the line will eventually terminate at the Dahisar East station which will serve as an interchange with the Dahisar (E) – Andheri (E) line (shown in red above). Construction of that small connection between Anand Nagar and Dahisar (E) is included within the scope of the Dahisar (E) – Andheri (E) line for which NCC Limited was appointed as the contractor in April. Besides NCC, J Kumar & Simplex will build other sections of that line – view details here.

J Kumar’s bids will now be vetted and presented to the MMRDA’s Executive Committee for its approval which I expect would come through within two weeks. Construction for both the DN Nagar – Dahisar & Dahisar (E) – Andheri (E) lines are now on track to begin once the monsoons subside in August-end. 😀

    Congrats to JKumar Infra…… The company has bagged most of the projects
    and company is marching towards becoming a GIANT Company of India
    when other construction companys are in the verge of closing down its
    shutters.

    All the Best to JKumar Infra Projects Ltd.,…. Your hardwork pays.

    According to Times of India, On April 27, the BMC filed a case at the Azad Maidan police station against Relcon Infra, R K Madhani, J Kumar, RPS Infra, Mahavir and K R Construction.
    Corruption is on its highest level in BMC.

    How can these blacklisted companies get any metro contracts is beyond my understanding
