Three firms – SC Agarwal, Pee Pee Mandal Projects and Texmaco Rail and Engineering – in October submitted bids to install track-work at Delhi Metro Violet Line (Line-6)’s existing Sarita Vihar Depot for augmenting additional maintenance facilities.

This contract (Package DT-16) of Delhi Metro’s Phase 4 project is part of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC)’s strategic plan to repurpose Sarita Vihar Depot for stabling and maintaining thirteen 6-coach Alstom trains of the upcoming 23.6 km Silver Line which will connect Aerocity – Tughlakabad via 16 stations.
