GHMC ropes in Engineering colleges to conduct third party checks

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, May 17:Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has selected 11 private engineering colleges to conduct third party checks of maintenance works being taken up in 30 circles under GHMC limits.
The objective behind roping in these private engineering colleges is to ensure quality and longevity of the works in the wake of complaints and criticism pouring in from several quarters over poor quality of civil works. The colleges have been assigned specific municipal circles. Each college has been assigned two circles and a few have been assigned three circles as well.
This will serve two purposes. The municipal corporation could monitor the quality of works regularly and the other was that civil engineering students would get first hand ground level training, a senior GHMC official said.
The municipal corporation has issued tender notification inviting colleges, research institutes and others to third party quality control services for civil works being executed in different circles. The colleges will inspect the works being executed at a cost of over Rs 5 lakh and these exclude housing works and others.
The selected colleges will function as a third party Quality Control Agency. They would provide independent assessment of quality works at different stages of construction.
They will have to inspect the site before commencement of work, during progress of works and verify the quality standards being maintained at the site.
In case of any discrepancy or error, the same has to be pointed out to the client, besides suggesting remedial measures. This apart, the colleges have to conduct tests, checks, sampling of materials and work as per the specified standards.
In the past, the municipal corporation had invited professors from Osmania University, JNTU and other institutes to inspect the civil works and submit report. But this practice could not be continued regularly with professors getting occupied in academic works, he said.
