Corporator wants civic contractor blacklisted for ‘shoddy’ repair job

The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) corporator from Borivali (East) Chetan Kadam, has complained to the municipal commissioner about a civil contractor having done a “shoddy job” of repair work to a civic school building in his area.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation spent Rs 58.56 lakh for the repair work of Dattapada municipal school, which was completed two months ago. However, Kadam has alleged that the contractor has done “substandard quality work”.

Sources in the municipal commissioner’s office said that the education department has been directed to initiate action against the contractor and take immediate corrective steps.

The contractor was awarded 68 different works in June this year and was given three months to complete the job.

Manoj Kotak, the chairman of the civic committee, said he would visit the school and examine the matter.
