Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has flouted its own tender norms and favoured a particular company in the appointment of two private operators for door to door collection and transportation of garbage. This will result in the financial loss of over Rs 62.79 crore to the cash strapped NMC.
The health department of NMC has tabled a proposal before the standing committee seeking appointment of Thane based AG enviro infra projects private Ltd at the rate of Rs 1,950 per tonne as operator for package-I (zone 1 to 5)and the Pune based BVG India Ltd at the rate of Rs 1,800 per tonne as operator for package-II (zone 6 to 10). The committee will take a decision on Saturday.
The proposal even has stated that BVG India emerged as the lowest bidder for two packages and quoted Rs 1,656 per ton after their presentation of garbage collection. This rate was given for package I and Rs 1,800 per tonne for package II.
AG Enviro was second lowest with Rs 1,950 per tonne for package I and Rs 2,045 per ton for package II Gurgaon Based A2Z Infraservices Limited was third lowest with Rs 2,795 per tonne and Rs 2,295 tonne for package I and II respectively.
