Combined totals for all 4 Packages
• MMRDA’s estimate: Rs. 2130.27 cr
• Lowest bid: Rs. 2101.25 cr
• Difference: Rs 29.02 cr (1.36 % lower)

This new round of bidding was highly successful, with the lowest bid for 3 packages being lower than MMRDA’s estimate. The lowest bid for Package CA-08 was Rs 20.64 crore (3.97% higher) than MMRDA’s estimate, but can be considered to be within permissible limits. Overall, the combined bids were Rs 29.02 crore lower than MMRDA’s estimate and well within their budget, so if no extraneous issues arise, then in the coming weeks the Reliance – Astaldi JV and Tata Projects – China Harbour Engineering Company (TPL-CHEC) JV will go on to be awarded with 2 contracts each to build the line.

    Hi Mr TMRG,

    Any update on Mumbai Metro Line 3 progress.

    What is the tunnelling progress on each of the sections.
    one had heard from MMRCL was ‘cumulative ‘ construction of over 500 mts.- this is surely as vague as it can be.
    Even the official MMRCL site does not indicate what is the tunnelling progress on each of the section.

    Your information will certainly help to assess the progress.

    The Ghodbunder Road nowadays sees heavy traffic jams. Borivali- Thane AC bus service is inadequate many a times and also get stuck due to traffic.

    Line 7 extension is approved by MMRDA till Bhayabheet via Kashimira, So if Line 4 is extended till Kashimira via Ghodbunder road, People can commute easily in much lesser time.

    For CA08 – if table and estimate values are correct then the difference is not correct.

    Is there is any rule in this bidding process that one bidder will be awarded up to 2 contracts only ?

      The basic notice inviting tenders didn’t say anything on that. Maybe the tender documents did? I don’t have access to them.

        Thank you for your kind reply. Hope that clause should not be there and work for this line should start as early as possible so the central rail commuters get at least some relief.
        Also can you provide status for Line 2B.

    Just re-read TMG update from 1st August 2017. Looks like many of the same companies who had earlier Bid 20-30% above MMRDA estimate have come to 1-5% below the original MMRDA estimates.

    A Recap from the earlier post –

    Package Lowest Bidder Estd. Value Lowest Bid
    CA-04 J Kumar 466.78 Cr 582.23 Cr
    CA-05 Simplex 508.66 Cr 626.68 Cr
    CA-06 Reliance 461.45 Cr 576.00 Cr
    CA-07 JMC 404.39 Cr 513.47 Cr
    CA-08 NCC 519.36 Cr 621.26 Cr
    CA-09 Reliance 546.08 Cr 693.00 Cr
    CA-10 L&T 535.07 Cr 665.09 Cr
    CA-11 L&T 529.67 Cr 658.38 Cr
    CA-12 Tata 547.63 Cr 674.68 Cr

    Really surprised to see the same companies coming back 6 months later on such lower bids. I am prelexed to see such drastic difference for the same package and same contractors. Don’t know if the MMRDA Has changed some scope of work or it was collusion in play at the earlier round.

    Contractors will be better advised to Submit reasonable bids at the first go and not waste publics time by entangling the authorities in re-negotiations and re-tendering

    Thanks a lot for the latest updates on the Bidding process for Metro IV project. Would appreciate if you could provide some information on the exact location with corresponding chainages of various stations on Metro IV, especially in Kapurbawdi – Kasarvadavali (Package CA-12). Usually this is available in Detailed Project Reports(DPR) which are off late being made public on the respective websites. eg. Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) uploaded the DPR for Metro 3 on its website ( https://www.mmrcl.com/sites/default/files/dpr-metro-line-III.pdf).
