This past Friday, Paras Railtech emerged as the lowest bidder to supply tracks to Delhi Metro’s existing Ajronda and Sarita Vihar depots on the Violet Line (Line-6) for augmenting additional maintenance facilities as part of Delhi Metro’s Phase 4 project.
This contract is part of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC)’s strategic plan to repurpose Sarita Vihar Depot for stabling and maintaining trains on the Phase 4 project‘s upcoming 20.201 km Silver Line which will connect Aerocity – Tughlakabad line in the future.
DMRC invited bids for this track-work contract at both depots in May 2020 with an estimated cost of Rs 22.70 crore and expects the assigned contractor to complete work in 24 months. Technical bids were opened on October 9 to reveal 3 bidders, and during technical bid evaluation Paras Railtech was the only firm that qualified to the next round of financial bid opening.
Financial Bid Values:
|Paras Railtech Pvt. Ltd.||Rs. 20.56 crore|
|Emrail Sdn Bhd – Railtech Pvt Ltd. (EMRAIL – RAILTECH) JV||Disqualified|
|S.C. Agarwal Engineers & Railway||Disqualified|
Brief Scope: Supply, Installation, Testing and commissioning of Ballastless/Ballasted Track in Ajronda Depot and Sarita Vihar depot for Augmentation of Additional Maintenance Facilities for Standard Gauge Corridor of Delhi MRTS Project of Phase-IV.
Back in October-end, YFC Projects emerged as the lowest bidder for Sarita Vihar’s reconstruction (Package DC-26) which includes a cut & cover ramp section and other civil works. Prior to that Ghaziabad Mechfab emerged as the lowest bidder for Ajronda Depot’s reconstruction (Package DC-25) to maintain the Violet Line’s maintenance capacity.
This is Paras Railtech’s third win in the past couple months. Back in September, they won the track-work contract (Package CT-36) for the Airport Express Line’s 1.878 km extension to Dwarka ECC Station and in mid-October they won the Grey Line’s pending 289.65 meter cut and cover tunnel contract (Package CC-126A).
Now just a Detailed Design Consultant (DDC) has to be appointed for both depots. Back in early-October DMRC received three bids for that service.
