Evrascon Wins Delhi-Amritsar Expressway’s Package 12

Evrascon-MKCIL JV today emerged as the lowest bidder for constructing package 12 of the roughly 650 km Delhi – Amritsar – Katra (DAK) Expressway after the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) opened financial bids.

This 4-lane greenfield project starts at KMP Expressway north-west of Delhi, and is expandable to 8 lanes with provision of service roads in the future. Phase 1 involves the construction of a 397.7 km greenfield expressway between Delhi – Ludhiana – Gurdaspur and a 99 km spur connecting Nakodar – Amritsar.

36.28 km long package 12 is at the northern-end of the Delhi – Gurdaspur Expressway. NHAI invited bids its construction in November 2020 with a Rs 978.82 crore estimate and 2 year deadline. Technical bids were opened on March 10 to reveal 14 bidders.

Financial Bid Values of Lowest 5 Technically-Qualified Bidders:

Evrascon – MKCIL JVRs. 853.66 crore
CDS Infra ProjectsRs. 890.77 crore
Gawar ConstructionsRs. 924.00 crore
Ceigall IndiaRs. 927.00 crore
Patel InfraRs. 1034.78 crore

Contract: NHAI/BM/DAKExpressway/ 2020/Pkg.12

Brief Scope: Construction of four-lane Greenfield Delhi-Katra Expressway from Junction with Amritsar-Tanda road (NH-503A) near Sri Hargobindpur to Junction with Pathankot-Gurdaspur road (NH-54) near Gurdaspur (Km 362.420 – km 397.700) on EPC mode under BMP in Punjab

Evrascon – MKCIL’s bid was well below (12.79%) NHAI’s estimate, so its contract should be awarded without much scrutiny during financial bid evaluation. This is their 3rd win after packages 9 & 10 in central Punjab.

DAK Expressway project’s greenfield section consists of 15 packages – 12 on the 397 km Delhi – Gurdaspur section and 3 on the 99 km Nakodar-Amritsar spur. With this development, financial bids for 10 have been opened, technical bid evaluation is underway for 4 and a tender notice is pending for 1. See a list of all packages and their status’ here.
