NMRC Reinvites Bids for Noida Metro Aqua Line’s Extension

Noida Metro Rail Limited (NMRC) today re-invited bids tenders (bids) for the construction of a 9.605 km extension of Noida Metro’s Aqua Line from Noida Sector-51 to Greater Noida Sector-2 through 5 elevated stations.

This civil package is a part of a 14.95 km further extension of the 29.7 km Line-1 from Sector 51 to Knowledge Park V which was approved for construction by Uttar Pradesh government’s cabinet on December 3, 2019.

NMRC had originally invited tenders for this civil package in May with an estimate of Rs. 430.69 crore, and received bids from 3 firms on July 15 – NCC Ltd., Sam India Builtwell Pvt. Ltd., and an unknown non-construction firm called Shrisay Infotech which is suspected to either have bid for the wrong tender or placed a bid on behalf of a small-time contractor.

In July-end NMRC canceled the tendering process due to “administrative reasons” with NMRC’s MD Ritu Maheshwari indicating to the TOI that they will “float the tender again as only two respondents surfaced” to get a better response from the construction industry.

It’s worth mentioning – in today’s tender notice, the estimated cost has gone up from Rs. 430.69 crore to Rs. 491.99 crore while the completion period has gone down from 26 months to 24 months.
