Bihar State Power (Holding) Company Limited (BSPHCL) has again extended the last date for sale, submission and opening of bids for setting up 150 MW Grid connected Solar PV projects coupled with Pisci-culture. This announcement was made on their website in Corrigendum-V.
With this extension, Bihar has extended the last date four times since the Tender was initially announced in May, 2013. The pre-bid meeting was held on 1st June, 2013 and original date for opening of the technical bid was 28th June. The details of the original RfP are available here.
Even though there is no reason cited in these documents for the extension, it could be attributed to insufficient responses received by BSPHCL owing to the temporary slowdown of the Solar market. The new deadlines as mentioned in the latest Corrigendum document are given below:
