Sreedharan Submits One-Man Committee’s Interim Report to Railway Minister


The interim report by the one- man committee headed by Shri Shreedharan for delegating tendering and commercial powers to General Managers was received by the Minister of Railways Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu here today.

It may be recalled that this committee was set up by Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu almost immediately upon his joining as the Minister of Railways to set up procedures of accountability in all tendering processes. The interim report was to be submitted by Shri Shreedharan within two weeks of the constitution of the committee and that time limit has been adhered to. The final report is expected within three months.

The committee has been tasked to suggest a set of procedures to be followed in tendering processes so that transparency and accountability are ensured. Emphasis on these dual criteria in the tendering processes by the Minister of Railways will give a quantum jump to the efficiency, transparency and implementation of railway projects and bring in an overall improvement in the system of working.
