Indian Railways procurement of EMU train sets delayed


Indian Railways, which had last year floated Rs 2,500-crore tender for procurement-cum-maintenance of 15 EMU-based train sets, is facing delays due to the issues raised by the five qualified bidders.

The tender had witnessed participation from seven companies and consortium, of which five qualified to participate in the financial bids, which were set to open in January, 2016.

According to the tender document, the selected bidder is required to manufacture and supply 15 electric multiple unit (EMU) train sets comprising 315 rail cars. The bidder will be allowed to procure two prototype train sets and the subsequent train sets will have to be manufactured in India. More info
