The recent tender that were floated for supply, installation and maintenance of solar pump sets for use in the agriculture sector have been set to get cancelled by the state government of Telangana. Chief Secretary Rajiv Sharma received directions form Cheif Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao to cancel the tenders invited by Nedcap. The reason for cancellation stood as some irregularities in the tenders.
Nedcap has recently finalised the tenders but it has not been publicised yet.
KCR also asked the Chief Secretary to initiate probe into the irregularities. It was learned that the quoted prices in the tenders have been raised to many times when compared with the tenders of other states.
A five-member committee is formed to study the ease of installation of 20 Lakh pump sets across the state.
