BMC seeks Centre’s inputs for new Deonar abattoir tender

After scrapping its Rs 4.02-billion tender for revamping the Deonar abattoir, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has sought inputs from the Union Ministry of Food Processing on construction and maintenance of abattoirs in India, along with a list of contractors affiliated to government-approved projects for operation and maintenance of abattoirs in the country.

A BMC official said the agency will study the operation and maintenance of abattoirs that have been recently constructed in the country under the watch of the ministry. This will give the civic administration a clear picture before drafting a new tender, which the officials believe will help avoid snags.

“Construction and maintenance of an abattoir involves three kinds of players, with expertise in areas related to civil engineering, machinery handling, and day-to-day operation. So, we will study the details along with the case studies that the GoI (Government of India) will provide us and will also keep those clauses in our tender so that only eligible and expert contractors take part in the bidding. After going through this document, we will draft a new tender. Following this, bids will be invited,” the official added.

In March this year, the BMC had floated a Rs 4.02-billion global tender for revamping the Deonar abattoir, which is the largest slaughterhouse in India. The project stated that a new food processing plant will be set up along with the latest refrigeration system for storing meats. Besides this, solar roofs, waste disposal units and a rain water harvesting system were also to be created.
