Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had awarded Texmaco Rail & Engineering with Package DT-08’s Rs. 117.08 crore in January 2024 after it was declared as the lowest bidder among 4 contenders in December 2023.

Back in September, Paras Railtech started track-work activities inside the Magenta Line’s 2.03 km underground Package DC-06 connecting Janakpuri West – Krishna Park Extension. That’s the only section not included in DT-08’s scope which includes roughly 92% of the Magenta Line’s new route.
