Tata Projects emerges as preferred bidder for BharatNet’s Phase II project in Chhattisgarh

May 11, 2018

Tata Projects has emerged as the lowest preferred bidder for the Phase II of the BharatNet project in Chhattisgarh, under which nearly 6,000 villages will be connected through optical fibre network.

Tata Projects reportedly bid Rs 26 billion for the project. However, the letter of acceptance has not been awarded yet. Tata Projects beat the two other bidders, government-owned Telecommunications Consultants India Limited (TCIL) and Delhi-based optical fibre maker Vindhya Telelinks Limited.

In December 2017, the Chhattisgarh government signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the centre to develop Phase II of the Bharat Net project. The project would entail laying down 32,466 km of optical fibre cable in the state at an estimated cost of Rs16.24 billion at the time of signing the MoU.

Bharat Net is one of the central government’s flagship projects for Digital India. The project aims to provide optical fibre network connectivity to 250,000 gram panchayats (GP). The first 100,000 GPs have been connected under the first phase of the project, which was completed in December 2017. The second phase entails connecting the rest 250,000 GPs by March 2019.
