Forum calls for NIT while awarding works

ITANAGAR, Apr 20: The All Arunachal Pradesh RTI Activists’ Youth Forum (AAPRTIAYF) in a memorandum to the Principal Chief Conservator of Forest, requested him not to allow any kind of construction activities, including building maintenance, road renovation and retaining wall in violation of guidelines and norms prescribed under the CPWD manual.
In its memorandum, the Forum alleged that many buildings were constructed without following CPWD NIT tender norms under the Forest Department. Questioning the quality of the construction works, the Forum also said that pre-allocation of fund directly from the Forest Department also hampers the government coffer.
It appealed to the PCCF to give instructions to the concerned officers to follow the guidelines and NIT process while awarding construction works under the Forest Department.
