PMC plans to pay extra for road work done 6 years ago Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has proposed that the private contractor who constructed three roads six years ago, should be given additional expenditure for the work as the prices of tar, cement and steel increased during the period of contract, reports Financial Express.


PMC undertook construction of 60 feet road in Dattawadi in its integrated road development plan (IRDP) as per the development plan. The company had floated a tender of Rs 3.14 crore for the work and awarded the contract for the lowest bid of Rs 4.24 crore to J P Enterprises in 2006.


The company had given the same contractor two more assignments of constructing Sainagar to Sinhagad Road and development of Lal Bahadur Shastri Road. 


The Sainagar to Sinhagad Road was estimated to cost Rs 1.22 crore as per administration but the lowest bid was Rs 1.51 crore. On the other hand, theLal Bahadur Shastri Road was estimated to cost Rs 4.54 crore and the contract of the lowest bid was Rs 5.99 crore given to J P Enterprises, the report added.


“There was a clause in the contract that if the prices of construction material increases, additional expenses should be paid to the contractor,” said Additional Municipal Commissioner Naresh Zurmure.
