BBMP told to drop 448 works worth Rs 109 crore

The inspection teams constituted by Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to assess the spillover works of previous years, has recommended to drop at least 448 works worth Rs 109 crore, while it has endorsed technical audit of 2,910 works worth Rs 575 crore.

BBMP Commissioner Siddaiah had constituted eight teams headed by senior officers to review the status of spillover and ongoing works in all eight zones of the Palike. So far only four teams have submitted their reports pertaining to Dasarahalli, Yelahanka,Bommanahalli and Rajarajeshwarinagar zones.

The reason for dropping the works and endorsing technical audit is said to be that even three-year-old spillover works have started only on paper, while those works which are in progress are of inferior quality. The team auditing the works in Dasarahalli zone found that 87 works for 2010-11 and 2011-12 have not yet begun, while files pertaining to 210 works are yet to get approvals.
