Soon after the bidding war had come to an end, the chairman of the RPG Enterprises, Harsh Goenka revealed the bids which were made by all the business groups.

He uploaded a picture on his official Twitter handle of the final bids, which gave all an idea of what amounts all the businesses went ahead bid for. The RPSG ventures ltd. were in fact the highest bidders as they put forward an amount of INR 7090 crores for both Ahmedabad and Lucknow.
