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.
A tender notice is currently pending for Indore Metro Package IN-05’s construction work, which is why I haven’t linked it up to a post above. That 8.626 km long underground section will connect Indore Railway Station and Indore Airport via 7 stations.
