August 18, 2022 Update: DMRC has issued LOA and awarded Paras Railtech with a contract valued at Rs. 28,27,85,216.90
August 16, 2022 Original Post: Paras Railtech Pvt. Ltd. in early August emerged as the lowest bidder to supply and install tracks (Package CT-42) at 3 existing Delhi Metro train maintenance depots built in Phases 1-3.
The scope includes commissioning tracks at the Red Line’s Shastri Park Depot, Blue & Grey lines’ Najafgarh Depot and at the Blue Line’s Yamuna Bank Depot where existing facilities are being augmented to increase maintenance & stabling capacity.
Contract CT-42 is one of the low-value residue projects sanctioned under the 162 km Phase 3 project which is nearing completion.
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had invited tenders (bids) for it in May 2022 with an estimated cost of Rs. 29.78 crore and 2 year completion completion deadline. Technical bids were opened in June to reveal 3 bidders.
Financial Bid Values

Scope of CT-42: SITC of Ballastless/Ballasted Track and Associated Civil Work in Shastri park Depot, Yamuna Bank Depot and Najafgarh Depot for augmentation of Additional Maintenance Facilities for Standard Gauge/Broad Gauge Corridor of Delhi MRTS Project of Phase-III
Paras Railtech’s bid was well below DMRC’s estimate, so a contract should get awarded in the coming weeks without a lengthy financial bid evaluation period.
