Ludhiana Municipal Corporation to review development projects

The Ludhiana Municipal Corporation (MC) has decided to conduct inter-zone cross-checking of ongoing development projects and related records, particularly in the area of road construction projects.

The MC has allotted development projects worth around Rs 250 crore in the city. A large number of road construction projects are underway at the moment, and residents are concerned about the quality of the work.

Municipal commissioner Pardeep Sabharwal said that officials from the MC's bridges and roads (B and R) wing will be dispatched to zonal offices to inspect the work being done in other zones.

Apart from checking the records, physical inspections will be carried out and reports will be requested regularly. The officials will examine the measurement books, funds allocation, Contractor ledger record, and staff attendance record, among other things, in the records.

Despite multiple complaints filed in the past, an MC official who requested anonymity said that the local bodies department has also delegated a third party to keep an eye on the quality of the work, but no concrete action has been taken.

SBS Nagar, BRS Nagar, Kitchlu Nagar, and Haibowal residents had previously expressed their dissatisfaction with the quality of development projects.
