Looking at the scope, I see MPMRCL has combined BSF and Kalani Nagar stations into one, and renamed Maulana Azad Marg Station to Chota Ganpati Station. A station earlier planned at High Court / Hotel Residency, east of the Railway Station, is no longer in the works as it didn’t get featured in IN-04 or IN-05’s scope.

This contract will be financed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) USD $225 million loan which is currently pending ADB’s board’s approval – see ADB’s project sheet.

This is Yellow Line’s 6th and final civil package to enter the bidding stage – see a list of all Indore Metro packages and their status / contractors over here.
