Kochi: Oppo electronics (Kerala) Private Limited and Muthoot Fincorp won the tender for semi-naming rights for 5 stations of the Kochi metro rail on the Aluva-Maharaja’s College Ground stretch. It bestows them with the right to carry their brand names at selected locations at the stations. While the former won the tender for semi-naming rights of Edappally and MG Road stations, Muthoot Fincorp successfully bid for Aluva, Kalamassery, and Kaloor stations.
KMRL will earn INR 15.20 crore (approx US$ 2.4 Million) a year from the 3 years contract.
Only 5 out of the 16 stations were available for semi-naming rights.
KMRL got the highest bid for Edappally station & the lowest for Kalamassery station.
Meanwhile, a technical team led by CMRS (Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety) K.A. Manoharan will wrap up the three-day inspection of the Kochi metro corridor on Friday.
The commissioning of the first phase of the metro rail hinges on the safety certificate to be issued by the CMRS.
The inspection started at Aluva on Wednesday and will end with the checking of the Muttom yard today.
