Private conservancy firm Neel Metal Fanalca to be replaced
Norms including stipulating number of staff to be part of contract
CHENNAI: The Chennai Corporation is waiting for the State government's nod to float tenders to replace private conservancy firm Neel Metal Fanalca (NMF), Mayor M. Subramanian said on Wednesday.
Speaking during a discussion at the civic body council meeting on a resolution to give back NMF 0.5 per cent of its billing amount, he said that stringent norms, including stipulating the number of conservancy staff for a certain area and sweeping of roads, would be included in the new contract.
“We are working on the modalities of the contract and when such conditions are imposed the bidders would automatically calculate and bid accordingly,” he said.
The resolution changed a clause in the contract between NMF and the Corporation so that the company would get the funds. Corporation Commissioner D. Karthikeyan said the company had requested the civic body to release the amount as it needed an infusion of capital to repair equipment and vehicles.
Opposition to proposal
Councillors S. Mangalaraj, Devaki and Leader of Opposition Saidai P. Ravi opposed the proposal.
They said that it would set a precedent for other firms involved in solid waste management.
