awarded in Mumbai the Maharashtra government has quietly tweaked the process for awarding public work contracts in a bid to break the monopoly of a few contractors The system of awarding such contracts only to firms licensed with the government has been discontinued Open tenders will now be floated for all works Chandrakant Patil Minister Public Works said on Monday The government is hoping that the modification which basically allows all contractors to participate instead of only a pre-determined group will bring in more transparency in the bidding process Allegations of a powerful contractor-official-politician nexus have been rampant in road and building work contracts allotted by the public works department for several decades After taking over in Maharashtra the Devendra Fadnavis government has already planned Rs 106 lakh crore of public works in the road and building construction sector Of this Patil said about Rs 60000 crore worth contracts had already been allotted Another Rs 30000 crore works are being planned on an annuity basis Patil said The multi-crore contracts had been a game for a handful of contractors “The condition that permitted participation of only firms licensed with the department had been discouraging industry giants from taking up public contracts An oligopoly of sorts had been created” said a senior state official “The tenders will now be open for everyone eligible” announced Patil The revised norms have been applied for road bridge building construction and maintenance contracts allocated by the public works department The government has also devised a standard bidding document to avoid deviations from the norm “The fact that most bids are now floated online has already created some transparency The revised tendering norms will aid the process further” said another senior official Fresh guidelines have been issued regarding steps to be taken by authorities during the pre-bid conference floating of the bids shortlisting of the contractors and awarding of the contracts The government has mandated its officials to publish the tenders on the government’s web portal Chief Minister Devendra

NewsWritten by C Raja Mohan | Published: December 15 2014 10:19 am To be sure Modi is not the first Indian leader to identify democracy as central to India’s international identity Related News The United Nations General Assembly last week declared June 21 as the annual ‘International Day of Yoga’ following an appeal by Prime Minister Narendra Modi three months ago This small but interesting step underlines the immense possibilities for projecting India’s soft power under Modi But the extremist Hindutva groups are undermining Modi’s soft power strategy with their aggressive promotion of a culture of intolerance and the politics of hate It is not clear if the government is computing the external costs of lending political impunity to these groups at home When he addressed the UN General Assembly in September Modi urged the United Nations to support the promotion of yoga around the world Calling “yoga is an invaluable gift of our ancient tradition” Modi argued that “yoga embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment” Modi insisted that yoga is about “harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and wellbeing It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself the world and the nature” “By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness” Modi suggested yoga “can help us deal with climate change” he said The Foreign Office quickly mobilised support for the proposal and won the support of 175 sponsors at the UNGA for the resolution on international day of yoga The resolution was adopted through an acclamation The extraordinary support that the proposal won at the United Nations underlines the growing popularity of yoga worldwide It is only in a few places that yoga is seen as a Hindu religious ritual and viewed with great suspicion Yoga’s international popularity has little to do with the government in Delhi A variety of factors including the spread of the Indian diaspora the globalisation of popular culture and the recognition of its health benefits helped generate near universal interest in yoga One can only hope Modi does not introduce the heavy hand of the Indian bureaucracy into the promotion of yoga around the world Whether it is yoga or Bollywood Indian soft power has steadily grown over the decades precisely because the government had nothing do with it The Modi government should also distance itself from the efforts of Hindu groups at home and abroad that want to “take back yoga” The attempt to claim exclusive Hindu ownership will only invite a backlash from state and non-state actors elsewhere in the world Yoga is not the only focus of Modi’s soft power strategy During his travels to Bhutan Nepal Japan the United States Myanmar Australia and Fiji Modi has consistently emphasized the importance of Indian democracy Along with economic ‘demand’ and a youthful ‘demography’ Modi has affirmed “democracy” makes India a valuable partner for the world To be sure Modi is not the first Indian leader to identify democracy as central to India’s international identity Soon after independence non-alignment and anti-Western orientation came to define India’s international personality It was Atal Bihari Vajpayee who began to inject democracy into India’s international engagement The NDA government then offered support to the US initiative to develop a “community of democracies” at the global level His successor Manmohan Singh took a step forward by arguing that democracy is central to India’s identity in the 21st century But the Congress leadership remained ambivalent about lending such weight to Indian democracy and preferred ‘non-alignment’ and ‘socialism’ instead Neither Vajpyaee nor Manmohan Singh were taken in by the Western proposition that India must actively ‘promote’ democracy worldwide They recognised that the greatest Indian contribution was in setting an example and demonstrating that democracy is the best form of governance for developing nations Vajpayee and Singh were ready to offer assistance to those young democracies seeking it; but they had no desire to impose it unilaterally on others Modi has stuck to that general line even as he highlights the global relevance of Indian democracy Modi has not let India’s democratic beliefs to come in the way of economic engagement with an authoritarian China or strategic collaboration with communist Vietnam The has also signaled an acute awareness of the fact that shared political values can help deepen India’s strategic partnerships with the United States Western Europe and the Asian democracies If Delhi was hesitant in the past to project its rich cultural inheritance from the past or celebrate its contemporary democratic values Modi appears bolder on both fronts Modi’s efforts at projecting soft power however are likely to come to nought if the government continues to allow a free run to groups that seek to anchor India’s rich cultural inheritance on a narrow and religious basis and infect India’s democratic culture with the virus of majoritarianism The creation of resentful majority and an insecure minority is a sure fire recipe for internal disharmony that is bound to generate severe external political and diplomatic costs in the region and beyond If unchecked the extremist forces of the Hindutva will not only undercut India’s soft power but also overturn Modi’s hopes to rapidly enhance Delhi’s hard power through a vigorous engagement with friends and partners (The writer is a distinguished fellow at the Observer Research Foundation
