This decision comes after the decision of Supreme Court in which the court instructed DMRC to pay Rs 4,600 crore plus interest to Reliance Infrastructure for the termination of a contract to operate the Airport Express Line.

DMRC had sent a letter to 18 banks on May 19 which stated, “DMRC proposes to raise loan to the tune of Rs 2,700 crore for purchase of Airport Line assets.” The Banks, which are willing to extend the above loan, are requested to submit their bid on the broad terms and conditions, the letter added.
