Allocate work according to capability of executing agencies: CM
Works should be handed over to executing agencies only after assessing their work capacity and ability. Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said this to departmental heads while chairing a meeting to review construction works of various departments being undertaken through executing agencies. Rawat also granted his approval for work allocation amounting to Rs 10 crore to the rural engineer department considering its work capacity. In the past, the limit of work allocated to this department was worth Rs five crore.
The Chief Minister expressed dissatisfaction at the slow pace of construction works under various departments and ordered that the said works should be completed within the given time frame. Delay in completion of construction works not only increases the expense but also prevents the intended benefit from reaching the public on time. Department heads should themselves assess the situation, which is also their moral responsibility. Rawat directed that the funds approved for construction works should be alloted immediately so that officials of the executing agencies do not have to make unnecessary rounds of the secretariat.
The Chief Minister also directed that construction works be expedited, special focus be laid on the quality, third party audit facility be ensured in works costing more than Rs 5crore and that CCTV cameras be installed at bridges and other large technical works. He further said that departmental executing agencies should assess their capacity and then take up construction works.
Only those bodies should be given large works which have full capability to execute such works, he added. Rawat clearly directed the executing agencies that they should not take up 10 works at the same time as this causes delays in completion of the works.
Finance secretary Amit Singh Negi informed that among executing agencies in the state, BRIDCUL, Peyjal Nigam, GMVN, KMVN, RES, PWD and Irrigation department have been allocated 267 works of various departments amounting to Rs 1,361 crore. Among the executing agencies from outside the State, UPRNNL, Bridge and Roof Company India, NBCC and NPCC have been allocated 361 works amounting to Rs 3,271 crore.
