As a part of pilot project Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation(BMC) yesterday floated its first online tender.
The first of the e-tenders will be floated for the purchase of monsoon kits for students at civic schools. The vendors bidding for it will get a password, following which they will be able to open a web page and fill in the forms. The process will be so guarded that a vendor will not know who the other competitors are. This practise will hopefully put an end to all all rigging and red-tapism indulged in by a handful of contractors. The project is being launched as part of its e-governance plan.
