Seven firms have submitted bids for the civil construction of a new terminal building at Maharana Pratap Airport (UDR) in Udaipur, Rajasthan after Airports Authority of India (AAI) opened technical bids on Wednesday.
Udaipur’s 39,246 sqm new terminal will be equipped with 4 aerobridges, 42 check-in counters, 12 self-service check-in kiosks and 10 security screening lanes. It will have a capacity to accommodate 2050 passengers, a significant upgrade from the existing terminal’s 680 passenger capacity.
AAI had invited tenders for the terminal’s civil construction contract in July 2023 with a Rs. 555.33 crore estimate and 840 day (2.3 year) completion deadline.

AAI’s Brief Scope: Construction of New Integrated Passenger Terminal Building at Udaipur Airport
The bids have now been sent for technical evaluation which can take a couple months to complete. When that is done, the financial bids of the technically qualified bidders will be opened to reveal who’s the lowest bidder and most likely contractor.
Here are a few design renderings via AAI’s tender documents. The last render reminds me of Mumbai CSIA’s Terminal 2.
If things align on the tendering side, I expect basic ground work to start in Q1 2024 and full-fledged construction work in Q2 2024.
