Tender for railway yard cleaning goes to high bidder Featured

A bid for Rs. three million has been set aside and one for Rs. 9.3 million accepted to award the tender for the cleaning of the railway yard in Maligawatte, the railway trade unions joint front alleges.

The figure is for one month, and the duration of the tender is 24 months, said secretary of the TU joint front Sampath Rajitha.

The same company that been chosen placed a tender for Rs. 1.8 million, but was rejected three years ago, he said.

The decision will lose money for the Railway Department, said Rajitha, adding that they would take legal action against it.
