Kolkata Port Trust (KoPT) has extended the bid submission deadline for two berths, which were managed by Haldia Bulk Terminals (HBT) before their exit from Haldia dock, to December 17.
"After prospective bidders sought clarification on certain aspects of the contract, we decided to extend the last date for submission of bid to December 17 from December 3," a senior KoPT official involved in the re-tendering process told PTI declining to be quoted.
KoPT had sought re-tendering for operation and maintenance of the berths no 2 and 8 at Haldia Docks after HBT exited alleging a law and order problem.
