The e-tendering job of the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) - for sanitation purpose — seems to be getting murkier. Four companies, which had qualified the technical bids on April 17, have not submitted all mandatory documents.
The papers had to be submitted by the companies while applying for the tender online in April.
The fact came to light during a high-level meeting of MCG officials held here on Friday.
The four companies are Sri Balaji Security Services, Perfect Manpower, International Academy and Antony Waste Handling Cell. MCG's joint commissioner (headquarter) Anju Chaudhary has asked the companies to deposit the required documents by May 7.
"Of the four, only two companies have not submitted documents such as experience certificate, financial documents with balance sheet and list of ownership of vehicles with proof," said a senior MCG official.
The MCG's move has also drawn flak from people, who have criticised the corporation's move of 'inducting tainted companies' in the bid held on April 17.
“As per tender norms, mandatory documents cannot be accepted after applications have been submitted. I fail to understand why the scrutiny committee allowed defaulter companies to submit documents,” said another official.
Critics say the move is intended to 'fit in' tainted companies in the sanitation bid.
Refuting allegations of favouring applicants, the MCG joint commissioner said, "The committee headed by me has sought the documents. We have not selected any of these companies yet. We have called a meeting in this regard on May 7," she added.
