Bangalore, Dec 22: A Karnataka House panel has slammed L&T, Siemens and Unique Zurich Airport for faulty design and construction at the Bangalore International Airport.

A joint House panel of the Karnataka Assembly recommended appropriate action against those, including Infosys mentor NR Narayana Murthy, involved in decision making.

The panel report, submitted to the government by committee chairman D Hemachandra Sagar, was tabled in the legislature on Monday, Dec 21.

The report says, "Decisions at each stage did not lead to the construction of an airport of international standards. It has recommended appropriate action against officers responsible for the present state of affairs at BIA."

The panel slammed "total apathy" towards users' needs and said the project partners L&T, Siemens and Zurich should not be considered for entrusting any work by both governments or their agencies for a minimum period of five years.

The Bangalore airport built at a cost of Rs 2,470 crore was opened to the public in 2008.
