Nyati Engineers and Consultants Pvt. Ltd. (NECPL) in mid-October was declared as the lowest bidder for the civil construction work of a new terminal building at Maharana Pratap Airport (UDR) in Udaipur, Rajasthan.
Udaipur’s 39,246 sq. m new terminal by Airports Authority of India (AAI) 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. Technical bids were opened in September to reveal 7 bidders. During evaluation, Ramacivil India Construction Pvt. Ltd. was disqualified for not meeting the tender’s conditions.

AAI’s Brief Scope: Construction of New Integrated Passenger Terminal Building at Udaipur Airport
Here are a few design renderings via AAI’s tender documents. The last render reminds me of Mumbai CSIA’s Terminal 2.
NECPL’s bid of Rs. 483.19 crore was well below AAI’s Rs. 555.53 crore, so a contract should be awarded in the coming weeks without a long financial evaluation period.
I expect basic ground work to start in Q1 2024 and full-fledged construction work in Q2 2024.
