The Hiranandani Group is back in the fray for the Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIA) project along with its consortium partner, Zurich Airport.
The group had earlier been disqualified from bidding for the project owing to concerns over the company´s security clearances, but Hiranandani subsequently submitted a bid for building the Goa airport two months ago. The last date for submission of bids is November 7. The three other companies in the fray so far are GVK, GMR Group and Tata Realty along with Vinci Concessions.
The bids will be submitted to City Industrial and Development Corporation (CIDCO) and vetted along with the project monitoring and implementation committee (PMIC). The PMIC is headed by the state chief secretary and comprises representatives from the Union civil aviation ministry. The entire process is expected to take at least two months from the last date of submission, given the various stages of scrutiny and approvals required.
