City firm may bag contract to construct cargo terminal

Surat: After the state government agreed to provide immigration staff, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) is likely to finalize the financial bid of a city-based firm for constructing modular cargo terminal at Surat airport.
Official sources said the scrutiny of tender documents is almost over and the city-based construction company is the front-runner.
At least 19 companies from other states and five from the city had participated in the bidding process. One of the city-based firms bid 31 per cent lower than the estimated construction cost worked out at Rs 8 crore.
AAI had invited proposals from engineering firms across the country for setting up of state-of-the-art cargo terminal.
In October 2016, the AAI had given administrative approval for setting up of modular cargo terminal.
AAI sources said the sanction for administrative approval and expenditure sanction (AAES) has been accorded and the tender was issued at the cost of Rs 8 crore.
