The standing committee of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has approved a case of recovery from Ecoman Enviro Solutions Pvt Limited after its ten thermal composting plants failed to function in the last ten years. The civic body plans to recover Rs 9.71 crore from Ecoman and demanded 12 per cent interest on the amount.

Hemant Rasne, Chairman – Standing Committee, PMC told The Hindustan Times that the company had erected eight plants of five metric tpd capacity and two plants with three metric tpd capacity but they are not functional.

The Ecoman contract has been controversial in the past too. The Competition Commission of India (CCI) had previously imposed a fine on the contractors for rigging the bid over five thermal composting plants.
