Six construction firms / consortia have submitted bids for architectural finishing and commissioning electrical & mechanical (E&M) systems at seven elevated stations of the 82.15 km Delhi – Meerut RRTS Line, after officials from the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) opened tenders minutes ago to reveal its list of bidders.
NCRTC had invited tenders (bids) for Package 10 in May 2020 funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB). They estimate it to cost $13.75 million (Rs. 101 crore) and expect the assigned contractor to complete work in 1610 days (4.4 years) from when the contract is awarded.
