City In­dus­trial and De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (CIDCO) has taken the de­ci­sion to ex­tend the sub­mis­sion date for the project's re­quest for qual­i­fi­ca­tion (RFQ) bids, the ten­der­ing process in ex­tended for a month, now the new date is 18th July. The de­ci­sion was taken in the project mon­i­tor­ing and im­ple­men­ta­tion com­mit­tee (PMIC) meet­ing that was held on 6th May, the eight­mem­ber PIMC headed by the state chief sec­re­tary, re­quested the civil avi­a­tion min­istry to ex­tend the RFQ date. The bid­ders who were in­ter­ested in sub­mit­ting the ten­der, had re­quested to grant them some more time to pre­pare their bid­ding documents and also more clar­ity on cer­tain con­di­tions. " The bid­ders had re- quested us to ex­tend the dates of sub­mis­sion as they re­quire more time and as per their re­quests in the pre-bid con­fer­ence, the PMIC has ap­proved and rec­om­mended to the civil avi­a­tion min­istry for ex­tend­ing the date by one month," said CIDCO Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor San­jay Bha­tia. RFQ is the first stage of the bid­ding process and those who are found el­i­gi­ble in this round can bid in the re­quest for pro­posal. CIDCO had in De­cem­ber last year got a go-ahead from the avi­a­tion min­istry to in­vite pri­vate bids for the air­port com­ing off the east­ern coast of the city and is within 65 km from the ex­ist­ing air­port. This was fol­lowed by a pre-bid con­fer­ence, in which around 20 bid­ders evinced in­ter­est in the project. The project, which will come up on 1,160 hectares of land, will be built in four phases. The first phase with an an­nual ca­pac­ity of 10 mil­lion pas­sen­gers will be com­pleted by 2018. Af­ter the com­ple­tion of the whole project, it will cater to about 60 mil­lion pas­sen­gers a year.
