The civic body sent show-cause notices to six contractors implicated in the first round of BMC’s probe into quality of road works. The contractors were on Tuesday given 15 days to send their responses before the process of blacklisting them is initiated.

Senior civic officials said the contractors had officially been debarred from participating in tendering processes in future “across all departments until a logical conclusion of the issue”. “Their registrations have been temporarily suspended,” said a senior official, adding that their partners or associates would also not be allowed to participate in the future tendering processes.

The notices charge the contractors with “not executing the contract as per the design given by the civic body” and “claiming bills for quantity of work not executed”. An explanation has been demanded for the same.

The six contractors were named in the first roads inquiry report based on an inspection of 34 projects undertaken in the suburbs.

Subsequently, in April, an FIR was registered against the six contractors Relcon RK Madhani (JV), RK Madhani, Relcon Infra Projects Ltd, Mahavir Road Infrastructure Pvt Ltd, J. Kumar KR Construction, RPS KR Construction at Azad Maidan police station under charges of cheating and conspiracy.
