Six companies including Larsen & Toubro, Lanco Infratech, Adani Power have been declared as the qualified bidders for the 1,320-mw Rajpura Thermal Power Project in Punjab. Out of the seven companies, six companies have been adjudged as technically qualified bidders, a senior official of PSEB said. The declaration was made even as the Punjab State Electricity Board hopes to issue Letter of Intent in the first week of November. Having invited bids for the second time, PSEB had received technical and price bids from seven companies including Larsen & Toubro Power Development, GMR Urja Ltd, Adani Power Ltd, Welspun Urja India Ltd, Lanco Infratech Power Project Ltd, Alliance Hydro Power and JSW Urja Ltd.
