Standing Committee appoints Arbitrator
Talking about the tussle between Unity Infraprojects and NMC regarding construction of cement road, Thakre said that Standing Committee has given a nod to appoint an arbitrator to resolve the issue. It is noted that the tussle is due to billing and payment of fine between the contractor and NMC. Due to this tussle, the contractor has completed only Rs 6.65 crore construction work of the Rs 77 crore tender. The project is of Rs 101 crore. NMC slapped a fine of Rs 6.57 crore on the company for delay in construction work. Thus, the construction work is incomplete.
