JICA nod tenders for Mula Mutha river pollution abatement project

The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) funding the Mula Mutha river pollution abatement project has approved the completion of the tendering of the project.

Mayor Murlidhar Mohol said that the department would soon carry out the inauguration ceremony.

MP Girish Bapat said that the delayed tendering process had issued challenges in the funding. However, JICA will continue financing the project. After getting assurance from JICA, it will clear all the challenges faced during the project.

He added that the remaining tendering process should be finished by the end of FY22. According to officials, the earlier tenders were canceled three years ago. The base price and the price of materials were considered with the then rates in 2014. However, Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has restructured the tenders according to the current rates.

The project cost is Rs 1,236 crore, including operation and maintenance (O&M) costs of around Rs 216 crore and Rs 1,020 crore project price.

Previously, the project was priced at Rs 990 crore. The Mula Mutha river pollution project was delayed due to land acquisition for five locations that were unable to complete.
