KEC Wins Patna Metro New ISBT Depot’s Track Work

March 10, 2022 Update: DMRC has cancelled PT-08 tender for “administrative reasons”.

July 26, 2021 Original Post: KEC International on July 16 emerged as the lowest bidder for the standard gauge ballasted track contract PT-08 of Patna Metro’s New ISBT Depot after DMRC opened financial bids.

This track-work package along with package PT-07 for 1200 MT 90 UTS, UIC 60, 13 m Class A 880 grade rails are dedicated towards the integrated New ISBT Depot which’ll be used to stable and maintain trains on both lines of the 30.91 km Patna Metro Phase 1 project.

The depot’s construction contract was awarded to Quality Buildcon in December 2020, and per TOI its land acquisition process was just initiated.

DMRC invited bids for PT-08 in mid-January 2021 with an estimate of Rs. 17.97 crore and deadline of 24 months. Technical bids were opened in March to reveal 5 bidders out of which Apurvakriti, Railtech and Shivakriti were disqualified during evaluation.

Financial Bid Values:

KEC International Ltd.Rs. 19.36 crore
S.C. AgarwalRs. 19.64 crore

Contract: PT-08

Brief Scope: Supply, Installation, Testing & commissioning of standard gauge track work (Ballasted, Embedded and Column lines) at New ISBT Depot for Patna Metro Rail Project for PMRCL

KEC’s bid was 7.73% higher than PMRC / DMRC’s budgeted estimate, but only Rs. 1.39 crore in pure numerical terms (a drop in the budget). Following negotiations, I believe a contract for this will be awarded in the coming weeks.

Earlier this year, other track-work tenders like Package PT-07 saw Jindal Steel & Power Limited (JSPL) as the only bidder and Package PT-04 saw 2 bids from Voestalpine and Vossloh Cogifer. Those packages along with a couple electrical packages (PE-01, PE-02) are next in line to have their financial bids opened.

Looking at the flurry of recent activity (L&T winning PC-03 and YFC winning PC-04), I imagine financial bids for those 4 tenders are also on the verge of opening. Stay tuned…

    Hi, @Themetrorailguy can you please let us know whether LOA awarded to KEC for the same.

    • TMRG says:

      Hi, checked today – official status is still stuck in “financial bid opening”, so contract has not been awarded yet.

      • Roy says:

        As per your post, KEC is L1 which is only decided after Financial bid opening so I didn’t get your point for “still stuck in FBO”. Can you please help us to get the exact ground report.

        • TMRG says:

          Things haven’t progressed beyond FBO. That’s the last status. Next status would be “financial evaluation” followed by “Award of Contract” (AOC).
