Questions Arise as Chinese Firm Gets Contract For Construction Of Underground Stretch Of Delhi-Meerut RRTS Project

NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): The financial bids were opened after obtaining the NOC on Technical Bid Evaluation from the Asian Development Bank (ADB). Of the five firms, Shanghai Tunnel Engineering Company Limited emerged as the L1 bidder.

“The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) has awarded a contract to a Chinese company, Shanghai Tunnel Engineering Company Limited, for the construction of a 5.6-kilometre underground stretch, from New Ashok Nagar to Sahibabad, of the Delhi-Meerut RRTS project”, according to a news report by The Print.


The NCRTC which is the nodal agency for the implementation of country’s first Regional Rapid Rail Transit System (RRTS) has said that the contract was awarded following the set procedure and guidelines which are adopted in all other cases.
“Now, all the civil work tenders of the 82-km-long Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor have been awarded and the construction is going on in full swing to commission the project in time,” an NCRTC spokesperson said.

This is to be noted that Approvals have to be taken at various levels for bids that are funded by multilateral agencies and the same procedure was adopted in this matter too.

A controversy had erupted in June last year after the STEC emerged as the lowest bidder for the construction of the 5.6-km tunnel on one of the stretches of the Delhi-Meerut RRTS project amid a standoff between India and China along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh.

The 82-km-long Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS corridor is being funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and procurement is governed by the guidelines of the bank and the government.

This time also, the movie is being questioned by many people who are raising their voices through social media platforms like Twitter. It is something very awkward specially when the country is setting in motion the Atmanirbhar Bharat Initiative.
