AP Port project
To commence work on Ramayapatnam port in Prakasam district in Andhra Pradesh on a war-footing, the state government has directed the district administration to expedite the land acquisition process and directed the district collector to hand over land required to the AP Maritime Board to begin the project's phase one. The government has identified 800 acres of land that is needed in the first phase and about 3,200 acres for the second phase. The district collector has also received the direction to acquire about 50 acres of land for resettlement and rehabilitation of the displaced population. The state is taking up Ramayapatnam port as a non-major port involving an investment of ₹3,736 crore. Amidst fierce bidding, the Hyderabad based Aurabindo Realty and Infrastructure-Navayuga Construction Company (NCC) joint venture emerged as the lowest bidder since they quoted well below the Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) benchmark value during the reverse tendering process. Initially, Aurabindo-NCC JV quotes about 4.5 per cent higher than the EPC while the other bidder Megha Engineering and Infrastructure Limited (Meil) quoted 4.9 per cent higher than the base price. However, Aurabindo lowered its bid during the reverse tendering to take the deal.
