The Municipal Corporation of Chandigarh has failed to get a single bidder to improve its waste processing plant at a cost of Rs 6 crore, meaning that the ambitious project will be further delayed.
The local authority had received two offers in its first try, but both were rejected after vetting on technical grounds. The reason for this was that companies were determined to be insufficiently skilled in the nature of the work required, which was one of the most important technical criterion.
Due to the lack of interest, the civic authority has been compelled to examine the project’s terms and conditions, criteria, and clauses. IIT Ropar is also involved in this project which is expected to take over 1.5 years to complete.
