Road contractors should be SEVERELY PENALISED for not meeting dead line & substandard work.

The road and drainage works in Mumbai is not systematic. The contractors do a very unsystematic job. They don't put work permit board and don't mention the time duration of the project. Any common man can clearly see that the material used is substandard (eg. all mud and hardly any cement). Workers allotted to do the job is too less compared to the size of the work or the other side could be that the number of persons allotted is proper , but the contractor is working with less manpower to cut down on cost. The contractor puts a water drum and leaves it unattended and one finds beggars coming to do toilet and take bath in the area. There is no proper barriers and potholes are left open. Mud keep flying throughout the day and goes on for months and sometimes even a year.
Live example is the work being carried out in Khar west. You will find that all lanes are dug up at once. 13th Road T.P.S.III, behind khar telephone exchange is a good example, going on for last 8 months and entering that lane will make you feel that you are in a war zone.
THE FUNNIEST PART IS THAT MANY TIMES WORK IS ON HOLD BECAUSE THERE IS AN ILLEGAL SHOP ON THE SO CALLED FOOTPATH AND THE SHOP OWNER GETS A STAY, SO THAT NO ONE CAN TOUCH THE ILLEGAL SHOP. EVEN IF THE BMC MOVES THEM THEY ARE BACK, SO WHATS POINT IN MAKING THE FOOTH PATH AND WASTING TAX PAYER MONEY?
THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THAT SEVERAL CONTRACTORS ARE INVOLVED AND EVERYONE BLAMES ONE ANOTHER. ALSO THERE IS NO CO-ORDINATION BETWEEN THE DEPARTMENTS, ONE CONTRACTOR WILL CREATE PROBLEM BY CUTTING WIRES OR GAS PIPES OF ANOTHER DEPARTMENT AND THE WHOLE THING IS IN A BIG MESS. ALL DEPARTMENTS SHOULD WORK IN COORDINATION WITH THE CONTRACTOR AND THE CONTRACTOR SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERYTHING.
THERE SHOULD BE A CONTINUES CHECK ON ANY PROJECT BEING CARRIED AND SEVIRE PENALTY / PUNISHMENT SHOULD BE IMPOSED FOR THE IRREGULARITIES.
ANY CONTRACT SHOULD CARRY A MINIMUM GUARANTEE / WARRANTY FOR AT LEAST 5 YEARS.
