Indore News: Fertilizer purchased for plants from others due to commission
Indore, Naidunia Representative Indore News. Every year the forest department plants saplings on a large scale to make the forest area green. In order for these plants to grow well in a short time, fertilizers and soil are also added. But in the last year, there has been a problem in purchasing fertilizers. In keeping with the rules, the Indore Forest Division has bought fertilizer from such an agency, which did not get the tender. In the matter, the agency receiving the tender made a complaint to the Forest Department Headquarters. On the other hand, according to the responsibilities, the agency receiving the tender has been told not to supply fertilizer. However, the audit department is also engaged in the investigation.
In the rainy days, in February last year, he told to plant saplings in Indore, Mhow, Manpur and Choral ranges. There was to be a tender process for purchasing fertilizers. But in March 2020, due to corona infection, the Indore Forest Division extended the tender process for a few months. Tenders were called in June, in which three to four nurseries and agencies participated. Fertilizer and soil had to be supplied for the whole year. Tender opened to Gayatri Nursery. Initially 100-100 kg of manure was called twice. But the latter did not contact anyone for manure. Later instead of Gayatri, manure was called from Shivashree Nursery. The tender process was completed during the tenure of the then Forest Conservator Kiran Bisen.
