IREPS: Indian Railways e-Procurement System


  1. I have already registered MSME, am i exempt from EMD for all tenders placed by IRCTC.

    Anyone clarify please.

    1. Several categories of vendors like MSME firms, Firms registered with the zonal railway for the tendered item, Firms approved by RDSO/ PUs etc. for the tendered item etc. are exempt from payment of either Earnest Money or Tender Document Cost. Such bidders can claim exemption by selecting the Claim Exemption option on the payments page.

      Bidders are advised to read the tender documents carefully and satisfy themselves about their eligibility for such exemption as is being claimed, as claiming exemption wrongly may render their offer liable to be ignored.

      Please select the applicable exemption category / subcategory and then click on the Click Here link to upload the supporting document for claiming exemption. The process of uploading document and then submitting the other details is the same as explained for uploading of documents and submission of details for manual payments.

  2. in the wake of including these elements it is amazing our circumstance isn't more regrettable, not to try and specify the immense obligation we have procured after this exorbitant war.
