12 Bidders for Haryana Orbital Rail Corridor’s C6 Contract

Twelve firms have bid to construct 64.53 km Package C-6 of the 121.7 km Haryana Orbital Rail Corridor (HORC) project after Haryana Rail Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (HRIDC) opened technical bids on Monday.

Package C-6 of Haryana’s first semi high-speed rail line will connect HORC’s New Patli Station (chainage km 61.50) with the Indian Railways’ Harsana Kalan Station (chainage km 126.03) along the north-west side of the line.

Its scope also includes construction of two spurs – one from HORC’s Badsa Station to IR’s Sultanpur Station, and the other from HORC’s Mandothi Station to IR’s Asaudah Station.

HRIDC had invited tenders for this package’s construction in March 2024 with a 3 year completion deadline and an undisclosed estimate which I hear is approximately Rs. 1900 crore.

The bids have now been sent for technical bid 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.

C-6 is the longest package of the entire HORC project and will be financed by the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) through two loans with a combined value of USD 450 million.

    Shouldn’t there be a UP Orbital Railway as well? This will create a circle around the NCR and many trains may use this bypass.

    Is something like a UP Orbital Railway anywhere on the planning board?

        This is not a forum for political discussions. It could lead to needless back and forth on politics vitiating a forum that is exclusively dedicated to engineering and techno-commercial developments in India’s infrastructure projects.

        These comments are very unhelpful as they will pivot and push comment section to be more polarised and eliminate all useful discussions that happen as of now.

        Thanks and have a good evening.
