House panel criticises Brahmaputra Board

By Spl Correspondent

NEW DELHI, March 23 � In a scathing comment on quality of work being carried out, a Parliamentary Panel has concluded that anti-erosion works undertaken by Brahmaputra Board were badly managed.

The Report of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Ministry of Water Resources (MoWR) headed Lok Sabha MP Dip Gogoi rejected the reply of the government describing it as �unacceptable�.

Obviously, due to delay in finalisation of the tenders for procurement of telemetry equipment by the Central

Water Commission (CWC) led to the reduction of funds at Budgetary Estimate stage for flood control, the Standing Committee remarked in its report tabled in the Parliament.

The MoWR while conceding the delay has given the assurance to obviate such delays in the future.

The committee desires the Ministry to fix responsibility for delay in finalisation of the tenders for procurement of telemetry equipment and also to put in place firm accountability procedures.

The committee would like to be apprised of the action taken to fix responsibility for the delay within three months of the presentation of the report.

The Ministry had tried to blame the delay in reduction of Plan allocation for flood control projects to late starting of anti-erosion work.

There was reduction in plan allocation due to late starting of anti-erosion works by the Brahmaputra Board and delay in finalisation of the tenders for procurement of telemetry equipment, the Action Taken Report submitted to the Committee stated.

The MoWR, however, told the Panel that work for supply, installation, test and commissioning of 222 Telemetry Stations has been awarded by the CWC last April. Efforts are also being made to obviate such delays in implementation in future.
