Leap Infraasys Pvt. Ltd (LIPL) in mid-October emerged as the lowest bidder to provide Detailed Design Consultancy (DDC) services for the 25 kV Overhead Equipment (OHE) system of Noida Metro Aqua Line’s eastern extension.
This new 14.95 km elevated extension in what is locally known as ‘Greater Noida West’ consists of 9 stations between Sector 51 and Knowledge Park V.
After canceling the original tender in April, Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) had re-invited tenders for this contract in May with a Rs. 43.78 lakh estimate and a 910 day (2.5 year) deadline.
Technical bids were opened in June to reveal 2 bidders – Balaji Railroad Systems Pvt. Ltd (BARSYL) and Leap Infraasys Pvt. Ltd.

NMRC’s Brief Scope: Detailed Design Consultancy for Design of 25 kV Overhead Equipment (OHE) system and Power Supply – SCADA for Elevated Line of Aqua line extension Corridor of Noida Metro Rail Project
LIPL’s bid of Rs. 36.99 lakh was well below NMRC’s estimate, so a contract should be awarded without a long financial evaluation period.
Back in December 2021, GR Infraprojects Ltd. (GRIL) had emerged as the lowest bidder for the civil construction of this line, but a contract to them has not yet been awarded to my knowledge as NMRC is awaiting the Central Government’s approval.
Their 9.605 km package connecting Noida Sector-51 to Greater Noida West’s Sector-2 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.
