Puducherry Railway Station to become world-class! Indian Railways to give a new makeover to Puducherry railway station! The Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA) is all set to conduct online pre-bid meetings for the station’s redevelopment amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Through video conferencing, two online pre-bid meetings will be conducted on 10 June 2020 and 17 June 2020. The Puducherry railway station redevelopment project is estimated to cost Rs 44 crore. As of now, the tender is scheduled to be awarded by the end of August 2020. The pre-bid meetings for the redevelopment of the railway station are slated to witness the participation from interested bidders.
The decision to conduct online pre-bid meetings has been taken after RLDA floated an RFP (Request for Proposal) for the re-development of the Puducherry railway station, inviting bids for the selection of a suitable public or private firm.
