AGARTALA, Feb 27 (TIWN): Tripura High Court has issued notice to the Govt of Tripura over unpaid amounts to Agartala Flyover construction company.

The petition  was filed in High Court after Govt didn’t take any step to clear the pending bills after 2018, May month. In the first hearing pronounced by Chief Justice Akil Abdulhamid Kureshi, State Govt was asked to give reply by two weeks.

Reportedly, for now the company has demanded to clear Rs. 46,93,72000.

Advocate Sishir Chakraborty said that the Flyover and also Katakhal bridge both are functioning but State Govt is not clearing the bill yet. On 19th February, 2020 they company gave the last letter to PWD and no reply came. Earlier, PWD said that the dept has no fund.

Here, once more it is proven that MLA Sudip Barman questioned rightly to CM Biplab Deb why Govt without tender gave national Highway project to an outsider company which could easily earn huge revenue from Rs. 450 crores of central funds if taken by PWD.

Earlier this company worked on IGM, Palatana Power Plant, Airport, NIT building but this is the first time that the company had to knock court’s door.

It can be noted here, BJP Govt wanted to file corruption case against Flyover but after many attempts no question on the quality of the construction could be spotted.
