Queries

We understand that Govt. of India has issued customs notification no 07/2007 dt 22/1/2007 read with notification no 42/96 dt 23/7/1996 serial no
36 as per Customs Tariff Act 1975 for all Metro projects. As per this notification, all imports are eligible for a basic customs duty of 5%. Kindly
confirm that these notification and concessional customs duty rate of 5% is applicable to Chennai Metro Rail Project also.

As per tender conditions, this project is eligible for "Deemed Export" benefits and also this tender is being called under ICB and funded by JICA,
please confirm whether Project Authority Certificates will be issued to enable us to get the claim of deemed exports benefits under Foreign
Trade Policy.

Please confirm whether all taxes and duties such as CST, VAT, ED, Import duties (CVD+Customs Cess+SAD ) will be considered for evaluation
purpose.

We request to allow contractors to submit their price breakups for each cost centres as per the actual calculations and we request you no to limit
with apportionments.

Since the price break up in the tender is on milestone basis and the milestone includes supply, installation and testing at site, the invoicing for
milestones can be done only after completion of testing at site. The time lag between supply and successful tetsing at site would be too long for
getting the payments and this could adversley affect the project cash flow in turn the projectprogress. Hence, we request you to accept a break
up of cost centres based on supply separately and installation & testing separately. We shall submit these price breakups for each cost centre
along with our lumpsum price at the tendering stage itself. Please confirm.
