KEC’s bid of 82.34 crore was well below DMRC & PMRC’s budgeted estimate of Rs 104.22 crore, so a contract should be awarded in the coming weeks without much fuss.

This will be KEC’s second win in Patna Metro’s Phase 1. Back on July 16, they were also the lowest bidder for New ISBT Depot’s ballasted track-work contract (PT-08).

With this development, 3 more ongoing tenders are waiting for their financial bids to be opened. This includes track-work tenders Package PT-07 & Package PT-04 and E&M package Package PE-02. Stay tuned…
