Jammu, Dec 5: A high-powered fact-finding committee has initiated its probe and is likely to submit report by December 26 to look into the wrongdoings in J&K Project Construction Corporation
Reportedly, a former minister has come under the scanner for giving undue benefits to some blue-eyed contractors.
The probe has been ordered after a written complaint from a former vice-chairman of JKPCC that a former minister had allotted contracts to blue-eyed persons.
The committee has to look into the manner in which contracts were given to contractors without following transparent tendering procedures. It also has to probe into irregularities in appointments at various levels, including that of the Managing Director and inefficiency in functioning and huge time and cost overruns in project implementation.
The complainant, who is former vice chairman of JKPCC had said that it was noticed that the minister on verbal directions has allotted the prestigious and projects of highly importance to some blue-eyed persons who do not have experience in the construction field without tenders or following the codal procedure.
