Making a remarkable stride in e-governance, the City Corporation has, for the first time, moved for calling e-tenders. Initially, the e-tender has been invited for road works in 10 sections under the civic body. Alongside, the normal tendering process is also followed.

“All works under the public works section will, from now on, be under the e-tendering process. Based on legal advice, the usual method will go hand-in-hand,” said Works Standing Committee chairman of the City Corporation V S Padmakumar. Contractors can obtain the tender forms till December 16 and the last date for submitting the forms will be December 17. 

The City Corporation is all set to implement the e-tender process for all works above Rs 5 lakh. Towards ensuring its smooth functioning, training was provided for the officials, councillors and contractors in the city well ahead of the launch.

“The e-tender will ease the effort of the contractors as they can sit at home and carry out the procedures. There are also facilities to pay the amounts applicable online. Transparency would be ensured in the process,” said Deputy Mayor G Happykumar.
