BENGALURU: The House Committee on Public Enterprises, headed by MLA A B Malaka Reddy, has recommended Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) probe into the failure and irregularities in implementation of BBMP’s waste to energy project at Mandur.
Reddy, in his report tabled in the Assembly on Monday, has expressed dismay that the project, for which an Memorandum of Understanding was signed in 2007 with Srinivas Gayathri Resources Recovery Ltd to complete it in 20 months, is still incomplete even after a decade.
The BBMP has already spent about `73 crore on the project, the report said and has rapped the government for not taking any action against the company and the BBMP officials for the failure in ensuring the completion of the project on time.
The report has recommended ACB probe and submission of the report within three months. The report has also recommended withdrawing six acres of land provided for the project.
