A total of three infrastructure firms viz. J Kumar Infraprojects Ltd, Larsen & Toubro Ltd and NCC Ltd had submitted their bids whereas NCC Ltd emerged as the lowest bidder by quoting Rs 727.74 crores against MMRDA's estimate of Rs 568.55 crore. Due to higher rates quoted by NCC, MMRDA has cancelled the tendering process and now issued a revised notice with the new estimated cost of work.
