Indonesian rolling stock manufacturer Inka has won a contract for 200 metre-gauge train vehicles for Bangladesh Railway following an international tender.
Also known as the Indonesian Rolling Stock Manufacturing Corporation, the state-owned company said it will sign the contract in July or August, 2017, after Bangladesh Railway issues a notice of award – the official announcement from the Government of Bangladesh for the appointment of Inka as the winner of the tender.
