Madhya Pradesh bidding saw Smart Wireless Ltd taking over as Distribution Franchisee operator for all the three locations i.e. Gwalior, Sagar & Ujjain. They have been awarded LOI and have also accepted the same for all 3 regions. They intend to start the 3 months joint operations with DISCOM by second week of May, and takeover completely before 15th August.
Recently, Jharkhand released RFPs for 3 cities namely Ranchi, Dhanbad and Jamshedpur. The below image provides a quick study on new Jharkhand RFPs and its comparison with old one's (Nagpur, Gwalior). It depicts the brief comparison of some critical Attributes, which includes Factors like Electrical Network and Health, Consumption Patterns, Geography, etc. A coloring scheme is used for better visualization for favorable Distribution Franchisee parameters across each attributes.
MP bids took approximately 9 months from initial release of RFP in June,2011 till awarding of LOI of all the three locations in April,2012, with total 3 revisions in RFP in between.
We hope that Jharkhand Government decision makers draws inputs from MP bids and expedites the awarding of locations by engaging all stakeholders.
