Dilip Buildcon was today issued two LOA’s for the Hoskote to Malur (Package 1) and Malur to Bangarpet (Package 2) section of Phase 1 despite their bids for each being about 15% higher than NHAI’s estimate. This indicates that KCC should receive a LOA as well barring any extraneous issues that may arise during financial bid evaluation.

As a reminder – the entire project has been divided up into 3 phases with a total of 10 sections / packages between Bangalore and Sriperumbudur near Chennai. With today’s development, financial bids for 7 packages have been opened and contracts for at least 2 of those have been awarded.
