Panel to study use of HDP pipes

By Our Staff Correspondent

MANGALORE, OCT. 7. The fact-finding committee, constituted by the Mayor to look into the alleged irregularities of the works being implemented by the Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development Finance Corporation (KUIDFC) in the city, will visit Bhatkal where the KUIDFC has used high-density polyethylene (HDP) pipes for drainage work.

The Mayor, Purandaradasa Kulur, told presspersons today that the committee had noticed that the Bhatkal City Municipal Council had recommended the use of HDP pipes under the Karnataka Urban Development and Coastal Management Programme (KUDCEMP), which was of good quality and would suit the needs of Mangalore as well. He said the committee would visit Bhatkal soon and bring back a sample of the material used.

Asked if it was possible now to stop work, Mr. Kulur said that if it could not be stopped now, substandard material would go into the project.
