MUM­BAI: In a com­plete turn­around and an in­di­ca­tion that a long le­gal dis­pute may lie ahead, the con­trac­tor han­dling the Deonar pro­ject has asked for Rs36.19 crore from the BMC, to re­turn the site and the pro­ject op­er­a­tions to the civic body.

In a let­ter ad­dressed to the deputy mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner (DMC) of the solid waste man­age­ment (SWM) depart­ment, the con­trac­tor Tatva Global En­vi­ron­ment Lim­ited said they will re­turn the “pos­ses­sion” to the BMC 45 days af­ter the re­ceipt of the pay­ment.

This also means the process of clos­ing down op­er­a­tions will get de­layed un­til this squab­ble be­tween the con­trac­tor and the civic body is re­solved.

The pay­ment quoted by the con­trac­tor in­cludes the amount al­legedly with­held by the BMC, be­tween 2012 and 2015 to the com­pany, the penalty levied to the com­pany and var­i­ous other bills.
