Tamil Nadu: NGO Arappor smells rat over handwritten tender files

Recommended Posts

For issuing a Rs 5 lakh tender to revamp the website of Transtan, the state government's organ transplant authority, the official government records pertaining to tender specifications and its approval by its member secretary, have been handwritten on a piece of paper without any government emblem or letterhead, documents sourced through the Right to Information (RTI) Act shows.

 

The replies to an RTI also show that three companies applied for the tender which was floated in November 2016. A cursory check by anti-corruption NGO Arappor Iyakkam with the Registrar of Companies (ROC), shows that the company which has put in the second highest bid, a private company purportedly headquartered in Urapakkam, does not exist in official records. Arappor also filed the RTI with Transtan to obtain the documents.

      एक शहीद सैनिक के जान की कभी भी क्षतिपूर्ति नहीं हो सकती । फिर भी, शहीद सैनिकों के परिवारों के लिए किया हुआ ये एक छोटा सा प्रयास ।
      A small effort for the families of martyred soldiers:
      Since last 2 years, I have been filing series of RTI applications related to Indian Armed Forces and Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) for ensuring ex-Gratia etc. to families of martyred soldiers or soldiers declared as battle casualty from Central level. Also, filed different grievance applications for giving ex-Gratia to families of martyred soldiers from State level as required. Attached photo copies are just some of the responses received to the different applications.
      During above long process, responses and actions were taken by various departments like Ministry of Defense (Navy), Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare (DESW) MoD, IHQ of MoD (Army), Air Head Quarters and many Zilla Sainik Welfare Offices and many District Collector offices and also Mantralaya at state level.
      Note:
      The RTI applications were primarily around Indian Armed Forces and Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF).
      1) Indian Armed Forces: This includes below 3 professional uniformed services:
      i] Indian Army,
      ii] Indian Navy, and
      iii] Indian Air Force.
      2) Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF): This includes forces like:
      i] Border Security Force (BSF),
      ii] Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF),
      iii] Central Industrial Security Force (CISF),
      iv] Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), and
      v] Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB).
      and others.
       
      Hope the world will reach to a civilization level wherein there won’t be any need of violence.
      उम्मीद है कि दुनिया एक दिन सभ्यता (civilization) के उस स्तर तक पहुंच जाएगी, जहां हिंसा या war की कोई आवश्यकता नहीं रह जायेगी ।
