GHMC issues notice to building contractor

HYDERABAD: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation has appears to have finally lost patience with the private contractor building the Sitaphalmandi Road Over Bridge and has served him with a show cause notice asking why action cannot be taken for not completing work in time.

Officials said the contractor had failed to finish the superstructure even after all the property acquisitions were done. Work was supposed to be completed at least a few months ago and since only “40 per cent” of the work was completed, the notice was issued. A five per cent penalty too could be levied if the contractor’s reply was not satisfactory, officials said. The Rs. 9 crore ROB appears to be jinxed ever since work on it began a few years ago when the first contractor gave up due to land acquisition problems.
