The reckless approach of the Tranport department of Nagpur Muncipal Corporation and IBTM operator may cost the department a loss of subsidy worth corers.
Niti Aayog head indicated that it would grant subsidy of 40% on purchase of environment friendly electric buses.
The officials failed to submit the tender for the purchase of these environment friendly electric buses. The files are suposed to be submited before December 15 to avail the subsidy on purchase of buses.
When the media asked about the cause of delay on the submition of these files it was then when these officals came into action.
The Transport COMMITTEE chairman Bunty Kukde became active as soon as the news was published in the papers and summoned the concerned officials. After that, it was known that former transport administrator Shivaji Jagtap had been given the responsibility of submitting proposal for the purchase of the electric bus to DIMTS.
The negligence of the transport department in the related matter also came to light. Transport department is handled by deputy commissioner Rajesh Mohite and administrative officer Ravindra Paige.
