A station planned at Prem Chand Rangashala between Moin Ul Haq Stadium and University stations was dropped from the plans in 2020.

DMRC had invited tenders for PC-03 in September with an estimate of Rs 1958.81 crore and expects the assigned contractor to complete work in 42 months. Technical bids were opened today to reveal the following bidders.

  • Afcons Infrastructure

  • Larsen & Toubro (L&T)
  • Tata Projects Ltd. (TPL)

Package: PC-03

Rajendra Nagar, Moin Ul Haq Stadium, University, PMCH, Gandhi Maidan & Akashvani with Entry/Exits & Connecting subway including Architectural Finishing, Water Supply, Sanitary Installation & Drainage works on New ISBT to Patna Station of corridor-2 of Phase-I of Patna MRTS.

    8 km w/ 6 stations is a very large package. This must be one of the biggest for metro construction in India.
