तिरुवनंतपुरम Thiruvananthapuram (TVC): The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has given the evaluation report of the technical bid submitted by the consortium for the exclusive developer-contractor for the Rs.5,581-crore elevated Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) in Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode.
The evaluation report from the DMRC, the general consultant for the monorail project in both cities, on the technical bid submitted by Bombardier Transportation Holdings USA Inc, will come up before the Cabinet on Wednesday.
Sources in the Transport Department told that the Cabinet and Kerala Monorail Corporation Ltd. (KMCL) will now take a call on opening the financial bid submitted by the consortium if the technical bid follows the parameters as per the DPR.
A 12-member team of the DMRC took 51 days to evaluate the technical bid that was submitted on May 30 in Delhi. Principal Adviser to the DMRC and State Planning Board member E. Sreedharan had insisted that the financial bid should be opened only after evaluating the technical bid.
Following the delay, the KMCL had sent a reminder to the DMRC.
Sources said the government would go ahead with the single bid if the technical bid was in order. The commercial bid would be crucial, as the variation between it and the estimate prepared by the DMRC should not be above 10 per cent. The CVC guidelines had also to be followed, sources said.
