Ludhiana MC has finally decided to issue show cause notices to the contractors who are delaying the work. The move comes after city resident Kuldeep Singh Khaira submitted a complaint on September 3 to MC additional commissioner Sumit Jarangal.
In his complaint,Khaira demanded blacklisting of M/S Captain Enterprise which since 2011 has been unable to complete five major projects and that too which had time limit of not more than 9 months.
Even after numerous complaints to MC no action has been taken against the contractors. In two-and-half years the contractors have hardly complete 40 per cent of the work. Time limit of 6 to 9 months has also ended way back, he said. Sources from MC Zone A headquarters confirmed that Jarangal has finally started issuing show cause notices to faulty contractors including M/S Captain Enterprise and soon the list of blacklisted contractors will be issued. Despite repeated attempts,Jarangal did not respond to the phone calls.
