MMRDA extends date to file bids to operate and maintain multi-storey Car-Park
The Car-Park offers 800 ‘paid car-rests’ in ‘G’ Block of BKC
The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has extended the date to file bids to operate and maintain its multi-storey car-park, which offers 800 ‘paid car-rests’ in ’G’ Block of Bandra-Kurla Complex, up to January 20, 2010 with a view to accommodate more bidders and to make the bid more competitive.
The bids were invited in the month of December asking interested parties to file bid documents latest by January 5, 2010 and in all ten parties had responded. However, during the pre-bid submission meeting held in the fourth week of December, a few prospective bidders raised queries with regards to taxes and outgoings, availability of additional car-parks in the near future, number of entry and exit lanes, insurance for the premises, first right of refusal etc. “Though the queries were duly answered, because of the two back to back long weekends, the interested parties requested for extension of time to file the bid documents. We have now extended the date up to January 20, 2010”, said Dilip Kawathkar, Joint Project Director (PR), MMRDA.
The 30,000 square meters of floor space in a multi-storey building is made available with demarcated entry and exit points and other ancillary facilities such as ticketing offices, toilets, refreshment facilities and rest rooms etc. The car-park is also equipped with adequate fire safety measures with proper ventilation and lighting.
