4 Bidders for Patna Metro Line-1’s Elevated Section

Four construction firms have submitted tenders (bids) to build the roughly 8 km package PC-04 of Patna Metro Phase 1’s 16.86 km Line-1 which’ll connect Danapur Cantonment with Khemni Chak, after officials from the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) opened tenders today afternoon to reveal its list of bidders.

This package comprises of two disjointed elevated sections on either side of the line. The first – a roughly 4 km section connecting Danapur with Patliputra Ramp through 4 stations, and the second – another roughly 4 km section with 3 stations connecting Mithapur Ramp with Khemni Chak Station which’ll allow users to switch over to the 14.05 km Line-2 (Patna Junction Railway Station – New ISBT).

DMRC invited tenders for this package’s construction in September 2020 with an estimated cost of Rs 527.62 crore and expects the assigned contractor to complete work in 36 months.

Bidders:

  • NCC Ltd.
  • Sam India Builtwell Pvt. Ltd.
  • U.P. State Bridge Corporation Ltd.
  • YFC Projects Ltd.

Package PC-04’s Scope: Part Design and Construction of Elevated Viaduct, elevated ramp at Mithapur & Patliputra and seven stations viz Danapur, Saguna More, RPS More, Patliputra, Mithapur, Ramkrishna Nagar & Jaganpura Station (Excluding Architectural Finishing & PEB works) in Corridor-1 of Phase-I of Patna MRTS.

The bids have now been sent for technical evaluation which can take a couple months to complete. When that is done, the financial bids of the technically qualified bidders will be opened to reveal who’s the lowest bidder and most likely contractor for building these two sections of the line.

      Happy Chhath Puja! I’ve seen conflicting official docs about Line-1. Some mention CNLU Station, some don’t. The most recent one doesn’t have it. Wish I could share it here, but can’t.

      We’ll need to wait and see what the tender document says whenever that’s released.

    Why only fewer bidders are showing interest in this project (only 4),??Is there any specific reason behind it?? Because we can see other cities across India are getting more and High ranked bidder than patna ( expections Noida aqua line extension )

      Bidding teams within infra companies would have done their homework to stay away. Either the calculated profit margin wasn’t enough (most likely) OR they prefer not to work with DMRC OR they prefer not to work in a location far from their regional / home base (least likely).

    Please update on the status of land acquisition and funding for the project. Some of the big infrastructure companies have not participated in bidding but all the 4 bidders except UP bridge corporation have fair experience in civil work of metro.
