Three Indian companies have shown interest in manufacturing rakes for the monorail projects, weeks after town planning authority MMRDA scrapped the bids by two Chinese firms.
Last month, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) scrapped the Rs500 crore contract for sourcing 10 rakes for the Jacob Circle-Wadala-Chembur monorail project wherein two Chinese firms had expressed their interest to supply the rakes, stating that the companies were “dictating” terms.
Three Indian companies have shown interest in designing and developing Mono rail rolling stock, the authority tweeted.
MMRDA Commissioner RA Rajeev had earlier said that the authority was in talks with Indian companies including Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) and Bharat Earth Movers (BEML), among others, for contract.
