ITANAGAR | Sept 22 | The All Arunachal Contractor’s Welfare Association (AACWA) today urged all executing department to implement Govt notification (No. SPWD/W-66/2012, 14.09.17 to negotiate with lowest one (L1) in any tenders and quotation.
All departmental tenders are just public eyewash due to over involvement and influence of ministers and local MLAs compelling departments officers to award those contractors who had good relation with them and department concerned, AACWA alleged in a release and quoted the mandatory provisions of the central vigilance commissioner to justify its claim.
It alos urged the GoAP to abolish the Arunachal Pradesh District Based Entrepreneurs and Professional (Incentive, Development and Promotion) Act 2015 in coming assembly session since AACWA has noticed that in some districts there is no registered contractors in lower levels as most of the government schemes is under Rs one lakh to Rs one crore only. The Act, thus has been causing serious problem among state contractors and may bring more differences in future.
