    1. If you are eligible for an exemption for a tender then you get the option to select the exemption on the TDC/EMD payment page. You can select that option and proceed further for bidding.

  2. Payment through Debit Card can be made from any account or it has to be an account in the name of the tenderer?

  3. 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. what is the exemption criteria for authorised agents of manufacturers

    3. Accredited Agent (of Manufacturers): Vendors may claim exemption only for the tender items for which they have obtained tender specific authorization from the manufacturer.
