Five firms have submitted bids for electrical & mechanical works (DE-12) related to augmenting Delhi Metro’s Sarita Vihar and Ajronda Depots, after the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) opened technical bids on June 15.
Its execution will enable DMRC to repurpose Sarita Vihar Depot for stabling and maintaining 9 trains of the upcoming 23 km Silver Line (Aerocity – Tughlakabad) and maintain train-servicing capacity of the Violet Line through the expansion of Ajronda Depot.
DMRC invited bids for this small package in May with an estimate of Rs. 16.57 crore and completion deadline of 27 months.
- Blue Star
- ETA Engineering
- Ethos Power

Brief Scope: Design, Verification, Supply, Installation, Testing and Commissioning of E and M works, Fire Detection, Fire Suppression System, EOT Crane, Compressor and VAC for Augmentation works of Ajronda and Sarita Vihar Depots of Phase-IV of Delhi 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.
