Construction and toll company to run POW!

Jaipur: Now preparations are on to hand over operations of the royal train Palace on Wheels to a Vadodara-based construction and toll company – Cube Construction and Engineering Limited.

Tourism Minister Vishvendra Singh objected to the proposal. “Worldwide traditional hospitality is the identity of Palace on Wheels. How can the management of the royal train be given to a company running the construction and toll? Now the CM will take the final decision on the basis of merit,” he said.

RTDC had issued tenders on the O&M basis. Only two companies agreed to take the Palace on Wheels in the financial bid. Cube Construction and Engineering Limited of Vadodara filled the bid of 18%. Piccadilly Hotel Pvt Ltd of New Delhi filled the bid at 15%. New Delhi based Ebix Travels and Jaipur’s Shiv Vilas Resort got out of the financial bids.
