TIGHTENING THE noose on contractors who vanish after getting works allotted at lower rates, Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to blacklist such contractors. It has also decided to make pasting photographs necessary on contract registration forms.

The BMC would put up photographs of blacklisted contractors on the corporation’s notice board. The BMC had recently faced problems of contractors – who, apparently to kill business of rivals – quote lower rates and get tenders of important works allotted.

However, once the tender is allotted, they simply vanish from the scene, leaving the work undone. Sources said many works were lying undone as the contractor quoted the lower rates. In one case of ward 47, the contractor quoted rates about 20 per cent below specification of rates (SOR). The contractors said that no one could carry out the works on such a lower rates. At present, the contractors in various departments carry out the works above SOR.

When asked, Mayor Sunil Sood said contractors would have to put up their photos on the registration forms from April next. Those, who apply for renewing the registration, will also have to provide their photos, he added.

Sood also said blacklisted contractors would not be allowed to enter in BMC headquarters- Sadar Manzil. He said contractors should carry out their works properly.
