Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) today re-invited bids for station architectural finishing works and installation of prefabricated steel roof structures at Delhi Metro’s Magenta Line which is being extended in the Phase 4 project by 28.92 km from Janakpuri West to RK Ashram.
DMRC had originally invited tenders (bids) for Package DC-10 in August 2020 with an estimated cost of Rs. 183.72 crore and 24 month deadline. That tender’s scope included a total of 15 stations. They opened technical bids on October 7 to reveal there was only bidder for it – Dineshchandra R. Agrawal Infracon and then cancelled the tendering process on October 24 with the following administrative message:
The following tender has been discharged due to participation of lone bidder i.e. not enough participation. The financial bid of the above tenderer will not be opened. This is as per the approval of the competent authority.
Today’s new tender notice’s scope includes just 7 stations between Keshopur and Deepali Chowk.
