B.K. Enterprises v. State of Manipur

Contract Law – Notice Inviting Tender (NIT) – NIT for transportation of food grains and Micronutrients under the Wheat Based Nutrition Programme (WBNP) – It is very unfortunate that the contract for supply/transportation of rice and other micronutrients under the Development Scheme has been continued by way of an interim arrangement only and without issuing any fresh tenders and the contract has been continued at the old rates of 2017-18, which must have caused tremendous/huge loss to the State and the Public Exchequer. There is a total lethargic and negligence on the part of the State and its departments in not issuing the fresh tender process and in not issuing fresh NIT after 2018.
