BDA is beyond the limits of CTI
Bhopal: The BDA has denied to provide its functional inquiry to chief technical inspector (CTI), CEO's letter has created a controversy on account of its letter to CTI and autonomous organisations related to construction works.
Chief technical inspector had written a letter number 4377
general 1 to BDA and had directed it to provide information
regarding construction works being carried under BDA. According
to sources CTI was reported about certain irregularities in
In the light of complaints CTI wanted to seek information
regarding quality construction. In the response of the said
letter chief executive officer informed CTI through letter
number 513, that BDA is functioning under Madhya Pradesh government
housing and environment department.
It will be much better for CTI to correspondence with principal
secretary, as BDA is an autonomous organisation the letter
reads, BDA manages all the things independently and has nothing
to do with CTI. BDA has over looked the directions of CTI.
It is to be noted here that CTI is the agency which reports
to government regarding construction works conducted by various
agencies. According to housing and environment department's
secretary a number of departments are subject to CTI hence
denial of BDA is baseless.
