Based on the recommendations of a technical committee which evaluated the capabilities, experience and competence of the five consortia which participated in the tender, a high-level committee consisting of Special Chief Secretary, Finance, K. Ramakrishna Rao, Metropolitan Commissioner, HMDA Arvind Kumar and HAML MD Reddy has selected the Systra-led consortium as the GC for the Airport Metro.

The immediate task of the GC is to prepare EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) tender documents for selecting the contractor for the Airport Metro, added Reddy.

The 31-km long Metro, estimated to cost Rs. 6,250 crore, will connect the Information Technology hub of Hitec City to Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad
