Coimbatore, Nov 25: Efforts can be taken to have a New
Delhi-based consultancy firm blacklisted for preparing a faulty
detailed project report for building houses for slum dwellers,
Corporation Commissioner Anshul Mishra told the Corporation Council
on Monday, Nov 24 at a special meeting to discuss infrastructure
development schemes to be implemented under the Jawaharlal Nehru
National Urban Renewal Mission.
Mr. Mishra said this in response to charges from councillors, especially of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), that what was being implemented was different from what was given in the project report.
"We found problems in the report and a re-survey can be done for 100 per cent identification of eligible beneficiaries. Efforts can be made to have the firm blacklisted even at the national level," he said.
Mishra said the firm had not done a proper survey and an inspection by the Corporation found that many beneficiaries identified by the project report did not have some of the criteria for eligibility.
