NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): Paras Railtech Pvt. Ltd. won the contract to supply and install tracks (Package CT-42) at three already existing Delhi Metro Train maintenance depots that were constructed in Phase 1-3.
The project’s scope includes completing tracks at the Shastri Park Depot on the Red Line, the Najafgarh Depot on the blue and grey Lines, and the Yamuna Bank Depot on the Blue Line, all of which are expanding their current facilities to accommodate more maintenance and stabling.
Contract CT-42 is one of the low-value residual projects approved under the 162 km Phase 3 project, which is almost finished.
In May 2022, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) issued a bid with a 2-year completion deadline and an estimated cost of Rs. 29.78 crores. In June, technical bids were opened, revealing 3 bidders.
A contract should be given in the next weeks without a lengthy financial bid evaluation period because Paras Railtech’s bid was far less than DMRC’s estimate.
