‘Ten­der is one-sided’

Mid Day - - CITY -

San­jeev Sharma, from Gur­gaon, who rep­re­sents a US-based com­pany man­u­fac­tur­ing Rapid DNA sys­tems, has al­leged that his com­pany was not con­sid­ered dur­ing the ten­der process.

“The FSL, Mum­bai, ten­der was con­ducted in an un­fair man­ner where it was to­tally favour­ing one com­pany and not con­sid­er­ing us.”

He added, “The mixed re­sponse by foren­sic sci­en­tists in In­dia is due to their com­fort level in work­ing with the ex­ist­ing con­ven­tional sys­tem, which is very slow and time­con­sum­ing. Rapid DNA sys­tem, which is man­u­fac­tured by our com­pany, to­tally sup­ports the ex­ist­ing sys­tem and can help ease pen­dency of cases, some of which go as far back as three years at some foren­sic labs.”

Dr Kulka­rni, FSL, said, “We had floated an in­ter­na­tional open ten­der, and any com­pany could have par­tic­i­pated. We do not in­vite any­one per­son­ally.”
