3 Bidders for Noida Metro Aqua Line Extn’s Construction

Three construction firms have submitted bids for a 9.605 km extension of Noida Metro’s Aqua Line from Noida Sector-51 to Greater Noida Sector-2 after Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) opened technical bids today.

This is the fourth round of bidding for this section of the operational Aqua Line’s 14.95 km eastern extension (Sector 51 to Knowledge Park V) which was approved for construction by the Uttar Pradesh government in December 2019.

NMRC re-invited bids in May-end with a Rs. 563.04 crore estimate and a 24 month deadline.


  • Ashoka Buildcon
  • GR Infraprojects
  • Sam India Builtwell

Package: NGNC-01

Brief Scope: Part Design and Construction of Elevated Viaduct and 5 elevated stations viz NOIDA SEC -122, NOIDA SEC-123 GR. NOIDA SEC-4 ECOTECH-12 GR NOIDA SEC-2 (excluding Architectural finishing Works and PEB works of stations) from Chainage 0.00 m to Chainage 9605 m of Noida -Greater Noida Metro Rail Project.

This package consists of 5 elevated stations at Noida Sector 122, Noida Sector 123, Greater Noida Sector 4, Ecotech 12 (Tech Zone) and Greater Noida Sector 2.

NMRC wasn’t satisfied with just 2 bidders (GR and Sam) in the past 3 rounds – see recap. With the addition of Ashoka, I’m curious to see if they’re now finally satisfied.

If the tender isn’t cancelled by August 1, then I’d imagine technical bid evaluation of all 3 bids would have started. Stay tuned…

    Will they use the QCBS 70:30 ratio for this evaluation as well?

    • TMRG says:

      Naah – that’s used for General Consultant type contracts.

      Will be 2 stage (technical qualification followed by financial opening)

      • MB says:

        Do you think metro will have any positive impact on real estate prices on this route?

        • Akash says:

          The real estate will be impacted positively with small percentage rise in prices and occupancy. The only issue in that region has is supply of real estate outstrips demand.
