Panipat, September 3

The Panipat Municipal Corporation (MC) allegedly made unverified funds of Rs 36.46 crore to a strong waste administration agency. A sum of Rs 16 crore was launched regardless of a House decision in July 2019 to rescind the contract over the agency’s “poor functioning”, as per the data gathered by Samalkha-based RTI activist PP Kapoor.

Panipat Mayor Avneet Kaur mentioned it was “shameful” that the file of the decision had gone lacking.

The MC didn’t arrange a venture administration unit (PMU), which was obligatory as per the tender settlement with JBM Environment Management. Bills have been to be verified by the PMU earlier than cost. Haryana had in 2017 signed the settlement with JBM as a part of a strong waste administration venture within the Sonepat cluster. Panipat MC paid JBM Rs 36.46 crore for lifting rubbish (February 2018-July 2020) and Sonepat MC Rs 2.11 crore (March 2018 – June 2020). “The MCs cleared the bills without verification,” alleged Kapoor. JBM’s Rajender Singh had claimed credit score for Panipat’s 160th cleanliness rating this yr.
