BMC Officials Under Scanner For Manipulating E-Tendering

In a report released by the Brinhanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s Test, Audit and Vigilance Officer, senior civic officials have been indicted for allegedly manipulating e-tendering to favor some contractors. The senior officials from nine wards of BMC have been accused of tampering with the software to award contracts to the few favored contractors.

The report details that 49 contracts worth Rs. 50 crore have been awarded this way. The opposition party at BMC raised this concern at the Standing Committee alleging that the said officials used to activate the e-tendering system after midnight when the contractors could bid and within a few hours would block the site for the rest of the time so that other contractors cannot access.
