Amritsar, July 11

At a meeting with officials of the Amritsar Improvement Trust (AIT), Chairman Dinesh Bassi said those bidding successfully for projects would have to finish the work within the set deadline.

Bassi debarred Puneet Sharma and Company from participating in a tender for the next three months for not completing the assigned work on time. He told the officials that he had been receiving complaints from all Assembly constituencies, wherein the contractors had been accused of quoting low amounts to secure tenders, affecting the quality of work. “MLAs of various constituencies have complained about the issue. Now, any contractor who places lower bids will have to submit double security and complete the work within the fixed time”, said the Chairman.

The Chairman also reviewed status of various ongoing development works, including construction of a sports stadium at Sakatari Bagh and development works in Verka Sant Nagar, Joda Phatak and Gumtala area.

The Chairman said a review meeting would be held every Saturday. In case any fault is discovered, responsibility would be fixed, he said.

MLA Inderbir Singh Bularia was also present at the meeting.
