Kickstarting a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) project to redevelop the Puducherry railway station, the Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA), an organisation under the Ministry of Railways, has called for two online pre-bid meetings on June 10 and 17.
The pre-bid meetings, held via video conferencing, will provide participating bidders an opportunity to seek details pertaining to the project. The commencement of bidding comes after RLDA floated an RFP (Request for Proposal) inviting bids for the selection of a suitable public or private entity for re-development of the Puducherry railway station.
The tender is tentatively scheduled to be awarded by the end of August.
As the nodal agency for the redevelopment of railway stations across the Indian Railway network, the RLDA is undertaking redevelopment of 62 railway stations across India on a PPP model as a part of Smart City Projects launched by the Government of India.
