Seeking security clearance of the companies that bid for the construction of the Mumbai-Nagpur Samruddhi Expressway, Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) submitted a list of 33 bidders to the Union Home Ministry.
Companies from India as well as other countries like Italy, Russia, China, and Germany are interested in the project.
MSRDC opened technical bids from the companies two weeks ago.
A senior official with the MSRDC stated that they already forwarded the bidders' list to the Union Home Ministry.
He added only the companies that are given security clearance would be qualified for the next stage while the rest "will stand disqualified".
Earlier, in Jul'17, security clearance was denied to a Chinese consortium keen on constructing the 22km-long Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL).
The list of bidders includes Larsen & Toubro, Ircon International, Tata Projects, Reliance Infrastructure, IL&FS Transportation, Navayuga Engineering, Gammon Engineers and Contractors, China Harbour Engineering Company, Todini Construzioni Generali, Cengiz Insaat Sanayi ve Ticaret, and Guangdong Guanyue Highway & Bridge Company among others.
