Only one bidder for south Mumbai dry waste MRF

India’s largest dumping ground is in Deonar, Mumb ai

A tender by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for several MRFs in Mumbai has only been partly successful. Contractors have not applied to set up plants in the western and eastern suburbs of the city, and only one bid was submitted for a facility in the south of the city, by a recycler from Gujarat. According to The Times of India, the BMC will now reopen the tenders for the suburbs with better terms to attract bidders. Contractors will be provided a site for the plant, free of cost. It is estimated that a contractor would have to spend INR 6 crores to set up the plant. Up to two-thirds of this investment can be provided as viability gap funding by the BMC.
