Ayesa India and Consulting Engineers Group (CEG) are the only 2 firms that submitted bids to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for Package JCDD-01.
These brand new phases will extend Jaipur’s operational 11.98 km Pink Line (Mansaravor – Badi Chaupar) in either direction to Transport Nagar (Phase 1C) and Ajmer Road Chauraha (Phase 1D). Phase 1C has an underground component (Package UG-03 – awarded to Afcons) through the old city.
- 3.412 km Phase 1C (0.96 km elevated): Badi Chaupar to Transport Nagar with 1 underground station at Ramganj Chaupar and 1 elevated station at Transport Nagar
- 1.312 km Phase 1D (entirely elevated): Mansaravor to Ajmer Road Chauraha with 1 elevated station at Ajmer Road Chauraha and a 0.357 km loop line
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had invited bids for the DDC contract in July 2023 with a Rs. 4.39 crore estimate and 4 year deadline.
DMRC’s Brief Scope: Engagement of Detail Design Consultant (DDC) for Civil, Architectural and Building Services including E and M works for one Underground and 2 elevated stations of Jaipur Metro Phase-1C and Phase-1D.
The bids are currently undergoing technical evaluation. When completed, the financial bids of the technically qualified bidders will be opened to reveal who’s the lowest bidder and most likely consultant.
The role of the Detailed Design Consultant typically includes, but is not limited to, producing and proposing alternate designs of all civil, architectural, building services, electrical and mechanical works.
Back in early September, JMRC awarded Afcons Infra with Phase 1C’s Rs. 630.45 crore construction contract for its 2.65 km underground section (Badi Chaupar – Transport Nagar Ramp).
In mid-September, JMRC ended up canceling the tendering process for Phase 1C and 1D’s elevated sections after the rate quoted by Sam India Builtwell, the only technically qualified bidder, was deemed too high. A retender notice is still pending.
