The civic body re-examined the previous inquiry report of a former joint commissioner and concluded that he drew his conclusions based on “irrelevant facts and grounds”.
According to the previous probe report, the C&D waste concessionaire had sublet 100% of its work to the third company in a breach of the concession agreement signed on December 13, 2016. However, the corporation has now found that the concessionaire sublet only a part of the collection and transportation (CTD) service, which is allowed as per the agreement.
Sunder Sheoran, MCG executive engineer, told TOI on Tuesday, “We have re-examined the inquiry report filed by a former joint commissioner in September and found that the concessionaire only sublet a part of its work, which can be done as per the agreement. Based on our inquiry now, we have disposed of the complaint filed against the concessionaire.”
The previous inquiry report also stated that the display board at the site of C&D waste plant in Basai mentioned the names of the concessionaire and two other companies, “which proves collusion between the three firms”.
“It is the sole discretion of the concessionaire to sublet a part of its work to another company. The concessionaire can sublet its work to one, two or more than two companies, however, it should not violate the norms of the agreement,” said a senior MCG official.
The previous inquiry report also stated that the concessionaire conspired with the other two companies causing huge financial losses to the MCG.
