Navi Mumbai:The Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) is pulling out all stops to ensure important works and emergency procurements, which are in the pipeline do not get stuck due to the model code of conduct (MCC), which is in force since March 16.

As per the MCC guidelines, tenders, other than global ones that are already floated, may be evaluated but cannot be finalised without the prior approval of the Election Commission (EC). Tenders, which are not floated shall not be published without EC’s prior approval.

Given the restrictions, the civic administration in its letter on March 10 has sought the intervention of the principal secretary (urban development department) seeking EC’s nod for completing the tender process for 28 works and urgent procurements related to the firefighting Wing and the public works department (PWD).

While most of the works mooted by the PWD are related to the maintenance and renovation of public amenities, the procurements include various safety gear and equipment for the fire and emergency services wing. Most of the work and procurement are already in the pipeline.

“We have sought a nod from the EC through the urban development department and are regularly following up on the issue. We are confident that our proposals will be cleared so that the citizens are not inconvenienced and our firefighters are not deprived of safety gear and equipment in case of any eventualities,” said a senior MBMC officer.
