    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. Can tender cost be taken manualy if by mistake during uploading of tender it is not mentioned by the tender issuing authority. Actually TDC is shown zero.

    1. No, It cannot be taken manually by the tender issuing authority if TDC shown in tender document is zero.

      If TDC amount is zero for a tender then it means you do not need to pay the TDC for that tender.

  3. I have registered my firm in IREPS. now I can see the tenders and documents. I couldn't see the TDC/EMD payment icon and bidding icons in that tenders. I have sent a request letter to AMM/MSD/GOC to participate in the tenders. Please advise. the tenders are closing by 2nd apr 10:30. Before that I need to submit my quote. Please do the needful
