petitioner submitted a representation/complaint to respondent
No.3 for reviewing the technical bid evaluation stating that he had
uploaded the required documents in the sensitive bid documents
Again on 30.3.2015, the petitioner submitted another representation enclosing the letter of the Chartered Accountant. However, by the order dated 06.04.2015, respondent No.3 rejected the representation of the petitioner dated 23.03.2015. Challenging the same, the petitioner filed W.P. (C) No.365 of 2015 before this Court. By an order dated 24.11.2016, the writ petition was disposed of by directing the Tender Committee to hear the petitioner on the basis of the documents already submitted for the bid and pass appropriate orders. According to the petitioner, though he was given hearing in the matter, the third respondent rejected the case of the petitioner. Challenging the same, the petitioner has filed the present writ petition.
(3.) Resisting the writ petition, respondents 2 and 3 filed affidavit-in-opposition stating that the present writ petition
suffers from concealment of facts regarding withdrawal of EMD in
respect of Package Nos.MNO 139, MNO 439 and MNO 9104 and
also declaring that he will not object to awarding contract work of
the said packages to any successful bidders. It is stated that the
writ petition has become infructuous, as all the letters of acceptance
and work orders in respect of six packages have been issued to the
successful bidders prior to the filing of the writ petition. Further, the
writ petition suffers from defect of parties and prayed for dismissal
of the writ petition.;
