Pratibha-Ranjit Lowest Bidder for Ahmedabad’s 5 Station Contract

The contractor for the last civil package of Ahmedabad Metro’s 39.259 km Phase 1 project is now known!

Yesterday, the Pratibha Industries – Ranjit Buildcon JV emerged as the lowest bidder for constructing 5 elevated stations on the 4.85 km Motera – Ranip stretch of the 18.522 km north-south line after the Metro-Link Express for Gandhinagar & Ahmedabad (MEGA) opened all financial bids submitted by different infrastructure companies.

MEGA originally invited bids for this package in February 2016, and following a poor response from bidders, re-invited bids in July 2016. Three firms/JVs qualified on to the last stage – Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Ltd, Pratibha – Ranjit JV and PSP – Gannon Dunkerley JV, and at this time their submitted financial bid values are not known.

Update: MEGA’s estimate: Rs 220 crores ; Pratibha-Ranjit’s bid: Rs 217 crores.

Coincidentally, Ranjit Buildcon also won this section’s viaduct contract in January 2016 and completed casting its first pier in December 2016. The 5 stations included in this contract will be located at Motera, Sabarmati, AEC (Ahmedabad Electricity Company), Sabarmati Railway Station and Ranip:

All eyes are now on the 96 coach rolling stock and signalling system contracts; financial bids for those are expected to be opened soon.
