Indian Railways (IR) has found 102 applications eligible to participate in the stage two or RFP (Request for Proposal) stage for running private trains on its network.

IR received a total of 120 applications for running private trains in the first round of short listing called Request for Qualification (RFQ), said a statement from the Railway Board.

The Railway Ministry had called for RFQs on July 1, 2020 from the private sector for running 151 private trains across 150 origin–destination pairs divided into 12 clusters at a total investment of about Rs 30000 crore.

The RFQ applications were opened on October 7, 2020. Sixteen firms made 120 applications for 12 clusters.

The selection will be made after the two-stage competitive bidding process consisting of Request for Qualification (RFQ) and Request for Proposal (RFP) is over. The RFP documents will be made available to all short listed firms soon, IR said.
