Gas Cracker to have head office in Dibrugarh

By Ron Duarah

DIBRUGARH, Sept 13 � Union Minister of State for DoNER and Parliamentary Affairs, Paban Singh Ghatowar today assured journalists here that the registered and head office of the Assam Gas Cracker Project, owned by Brahmaputra Cracker & Polymer Limited (BCPL), will be located here. He has thus quashed speculation on the location of the company�s registered head office.

His statement to this effect was seconded by the chief operating officer of BCPL, Prabhu Nath Prasad, who would shortly take charge as managing director of the Rs 9,000 crore company. Prasad said he remains in Dibrugarh most of the time and that he goes to Delhi and Guwahati as and when work demands.

Ghatowar earlier today visited the 3,300 bigha campus of the Gas Cracker Project and took stock of the progress of work. He was escorted around the sprawling campus by Prasad and a team of senior officials from BCPL and Engineers India Limited. He later was briefed about various aspects of construction of the mega project. Ghatowar also spoke to representatives of the project�s prime contractors to familiarise himself with the ground situation.

Speaking to newspersons at the project site, Ghatowar said he has advised the BCPL management to ensure that the project�s commissioning deadline is adhered to. He also took note of the grievances of the sub contractors, and had a discussion on the matters raised by them with the BCPL management. He said there should be no occasion for a labourer to complain that he is not receiving his wages in time. The sub contractors have been complaining bitterly of poor payment of dues by the prime contractors, leading to anomalies in labour payments and resulting in labour strife.

On Monday, Ghatowar did a review of the progress on the Bogibeel bridge works. He said he is unhappy that the bridge completion is being delayed repeatedly, despite it being a national project. The Rs 3,300 crore Bogibeel bridge was to open to traffic in 2007. The fresh deadline is December 2015. He said he would take up the matter with the Railway minister.
