47 lakhs to build a BUS STAND
Today morning while i was on my way to office ,i could hear two people talking .
Person 1 : Yesterday while i was reading the dhinamalar paper i came across a article while said the cost estimate sanctioned for building the chrompet bus stop was 47 lakhs .
Person 2 :What do you mean 47 lakhs for just a bus stop .
Person 1 :I couldnt take it , i told my father and he was laughing about it
Person 2 : What ? Why?
Person 1: He said yes it happens , he has to give to all other people na, so he asks for so much money
Person 2 :IS there nobody else to build ?
Person 1 :This was the lowest of all it seems!!!!
Person 2 :#$@#%$#%^^
What i cant understand is for some dozens of asbestos sheets and pillars and of course some benches how which is it gonna cost ??
Probabily i dont know how much the cements, sand and iron pillars are gonna cost or even the cost for the workers still i cant imagine it to go up to 50 lakhs .
Is it the ,what i studied “BID FIXING” in which all the people who bid fix thrice or four times the actual rate and bid so much money , there by dividing the money later on among themselves.
I asked my friend “cant we do nothing about it?” he said “yes you can get a stay order if you want but they will show you the bills for every paise” .
Is this happening everywhere ?
