GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Nov 26: Describing e-governance an effective tool to ensure transparency in the functioning of government departments particularly those dealing with construction, procurement and purchases, Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah Saturday put the J&K Projects Construction Corporation (JKPCC) on e-tendering portal.
“The Chief Minister launched Rs 700 lakh Magloor-Bakhtar Bridge over Ternah Nallah in district Kathua on e-tendering process at a meeting of the corporation,” an official statement said.
The chief minister, it said, chaired the meeting while Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister, B. B. Vyas, Managing Director, JKPCC, Madan Gupta and various General Managers of the Corporation and officers of NIC were present.
In yet another initiative aimed at bringing transparency in the financial transactions and functioning of JKPCC, the Chief Minister who is also Chairman of the Corporation ordered e-tendering of all works of Rs. 5 lakh and above by the corporation.
Omar also directed the Corporation to install hoardings at the construction site of each mega-project under its implementation giving full details about the specification of material to be used in the project for the general check of anybody intending to ascertain whether the work is being done as per the identified specifications.
“You should allow anyone to check and analyze the information details printed on the hoardings in the laboratory that should be functional at the construction site,” he told the JKPCC management.
Earlier, works of the value of Rs 50 lakh and above were ordered to be put to e-tendering but now the Chief Minister has given instructions to launch all works of the value of Rs 5 lakh and above on e-tendering process.
Omar has asked other departments dealing with construction of public service infrastructure, procurement and purchases to follow the suit and prepare for launch of e-tendering and e-procurement in these departments.
The Chief Minister said that among other measures taken by his Government to curb corruption and ensure transparency in the functioning of government departments and giving boost to good-governance, the process of e-tendering is another milestone in the campaign against malpractices.
Meanwhile, Omar reviewed the functioning of JKPCC and directed the management to ensure timely completion of works. He stressed on judicious spending of funds and sticking to the quality work.
