GURGAON: Nine months after the term of seven agencies providing sanitation services and manpower got over, MCG has finalised six private companies to provide sanitation services. The contracts of previous companies had expired on November 30 last year.
The agencies will start working from September 1, bringing relief to residents who have been complaining about the city’s poor sanitation. The city has been divided into eight zones. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 99 crore for two years.
“We had already applied for an extension of the existing private companies’ term till August 31, after which these six companies will take over,” said a senior MCG official privy to the matter.
They will set up control rooms, which will have a complaint handling cell to readdress grievances promptly. The companies will be responsible for the manual sweeping of roads, drain cleaning, and bush uprooting.
Pradeep Kumar, MCG joint commissioner for Swachh Bharat Mission, said that earlier tractor trolleys and other equipment had to be provided to the private firms since their work was manpower based. Now, the tenders are as per work, which implies that the firms will have to ensure cleaning irrespective of the manpower deployed.
“The tender was drafted as per norms laid out by the Central Public Health and Environmental Engineering Organisation,” Kumar said.
