Delhi government's decision to put all tenders online is facing a major deadlock, as departments are not willing to put the tenders online. The Public Works Department (PWD), and the Irrigation and the Flood Department have been been floating all their tenders on the e-procurement website, as has been pointed out by the Information Technology (IT) Department. The PWD and the irrigation departments float the maximum number of tenders.
Last week the IT department has issued orders making it compulsory from this month for each department to post tenders online. Even the department of Information and Publicity has been instructed to ensure that all tender advertisement is put online before it is cleared for publication.
