A Legislative Assembly committee today directed the public works department to constitute a technical panel to probe the process of allotment of construction works for the Ganpat Bridge in Doda district.

The directions were issued by the Committee on Public Undertakings (PUC).

The committee noted that works for the bridge's construction were allotted without inviting any tender in 2010-11.

The payment of unsecured interest free mobilisation advance to the contractor resulted in an undue favour to the contractor and interest loss of Rs 1.64 crore, it said.

The government cancelled the allotment in 2014, the panel stated. 

The committee met under the chairmanship of BJP MLA Sat Paul Sharma.

It examined the CAG's audit paragraphs pertaining to the Jammu and Kashmir Projects Construction Corporation (JKPCC) besides reviewing the overall working of the corporation.
