Shocking! Electrical contractors allege Rs 468 crore scam

1 min read

Mysuru: Karnataka State Authorised Electrical Contractors Association has alleged Rs 468 crore scam at Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Corporation Limited ( Cesc).

The Cesc officials in connivance with a few capitalists have awarded tenders for the margin of 40 to 50 percent more than the scheduled rate (SR)at the cost of State contractors, alleged Association president Dr S M Krishna on August 24.

The tenders awarded on January 21 in Mandya and Hassan circles to install additional transformers, link line works and illegal pumpsets, and several other works were merged only to suit two to three capitalists.

They also ignored local labourers and brough workers from outside the State and also country from Bangladesh.

The rules were also modified for their benefit. If the same works were classified and awarded as piece contracts, the local contractors who claim three to eight percent over the scheduled rates would have survived.

The association took a delegation to Cesc MD and director ( Technical) and the issue eas brought to their notice. They just nodded their head, as a perfunctory job.

The association will be forced to launch aggressive protest if the Cesc doesn’t revoke the tenders awarded to select contractors, warned Krishna.
