Twelve firms have submitted bids to perform architectural finishing works and install prefabricated steel roof structures at 7 new elevated stations on the Delhi Metro Magenta Line’s extension, after the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) opened technical bids this afternoon.
The 7 stations include Keshopur, Paschim Vihar, Peeragarhi, Mangol Puri, West Enclave, Pushpanjali and Deepali Chowk.
DMRC had originally invited tenders (bids) for Package DC-10 with 15 stations in August 2020 with an estimated cost of Rs. 183.72 crore and 24 month deadline. 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.
The tender was then split up into two and DMRC invited bids in December for just 7 stations between Keshopur and Deepali Chowk. They estimate this tender to cost Rs 89.76 crore and would like work to be completed within a deadline of 720 days (2 years).
