The Goa government has received three bids for the setting up of the Rs 200 crore solid waste management facility at Bainguinim. The companies that have expressed interest are Hindustan Waste Treatment Pvt Ltd, Maaviya Engineering Consultants Pvt Ltd and Three R Management Pvt Ltd, reports The Times of India.

Due to inadequate offers, the state government had extended the time limit for accepting bids four times, the last being on January 31.

Managing director of Goa Waste Management Corporation (GWMC) Levinson Martins said that the tenders were opened on Monday. “Now the documents of these companies will be scrutinized and, after technical evaluation, request for proposal will be sought from the selected companies,” he said.

In 2008, the Corporation of the City of Panaji (CCP) had acquired land at Bainguinim to set up the plant and in 2017 it was handed over to GWMC. A public hearing was also held by GWMC and the environment clearance was also obtained.
