`Don't al­low cost es­ca­la­tion'

Down to Earth - - THE FORTNIGHT -

gov­ern­ment has di­rected all gov­ern­ment de­part­ments not to al­low cost es­ca­la­tion in any kind of con­struc­tion work. The cir­cu­lar has said that from now on the pro­posed date of com­ple­tion of con­struc­tion and the project cost and fi­nan­cial plan should all be part of the work or­der is­sued to the con­trac­tor in ques­tion, and no changes should be al­lowed in this or­der once it has been framed. Cost es­ca­la­tion of con­struc­tion projects has been the bane of fi­nan­cial plan­ning in Ma­ha­rash­tra. The ir­ri­ga­tion scam is only one ex­am­ple of cost es­ca­la­tion and wil­ful de­lay in com­ple­tion of projects, show of­fi­cial sources.
