gite: Open all garbage related tenders: Ganesh Gite | Nashik News
Gite asked the relevant municipal authorities to open the bids, finalize the contractors and submit the proposals at the next standing committee meeting. The city administration had tabled a proposal to grant a two-month extension to existing refuse collection contractors – until March 31 at a total cost of Rs 17 crore. The civic body had already granted a one-month extension, until January 31, after the contract expired on December 31.
Accordingly, Gite approved the two-month extension proposal submitted by the municipal administration. He also ordered officials to complete the bidding process and finalize contractors at the earliest.
The NMC had recently launched tenders to appoint contractors for the collection and transport of solid waste from the six divisions of the municipal corporation.
The Civic Corps received poor response for two divisions – Panchavati and Satpur. Therefore, the NMC launched new offers for these two divisions. Still, the response from private agencies for the other four divisions – Nashik East, Nashik West, Nashik Road and Cidco – has been good. But the NMC did not open the tenders as they had planned to open the tenders for all six divisions at the same time.
Gite therefore ordered the administration to open the bids for the other four divisions where they got a good response from the contractors. The NMC is implementing the bidding process to appoint private agencies in the six divisions for the collection and transportation of solid waste in the city for a period of five years.
