केंद्रीय बजट 2015-16 के अपने बजट भाषण में वित्त मंत्री ने ठेके से संबंधित विवादों के समाधान के लिए संस्थागत व्यवस्था को कारगर बनाने की आवश्यकता पर बल दिया और लोक संविदा लागू करने के लिए विधेयक (विवादों के समाधान) का प्रस्ताव रखा। वित्त मंत्री के बजट भाषण का प्रासंगिक अंश इस प्रकार हैः

1. “सार्वजनिक ठेके में उत्पन्न होने वाले विवादों को हल करने की प्रक्रिया में काफी समय लगता है तथा यह प्रक्रिया महंगी भी है। मेरी सरकार इस तरह के विवादों के समाधान तथा संस्थागत व्यवस्था को कारगर बनाने के लिए, लोक संविदा (विवादों के समाधान) बिल पेश करने का प्रस्ताव रखती है”।

2. तदनुसार, लोक ठेके का प्रारंभिक मसौदा (विवादों के समाधान) विधेयक, 2015 तैयार किया गया है। प्रस्तावित कानून पीपीपी परियोजनाओं सहित परियोजनाओं के निर्माण और बुनियादी परियोजनाओं के लिए लोक प्राधिकरण द्वारा किए गए अनुबंध के साथ सौदा करने के लिए परिकल्पना की गई है।

3. विधेयक के मसौदे पर हितधारकों की टिप्पणी/विचार प्राप्त करने के लिए संलग्न किया गया है। विचारों को साझा करने के लिए अंतिम तिथि/समय 30 जून 2015, शाम 5:00 बजे तक है।

9Section 21 The limitation of 3 years should be retained, otherwise it will create complications. (Parties will have to file application seeking condonation of delay. Further, in view sub section 3 the power of condonation shall extend beyond period of three yrs if there is no time period prescribed for extension in subsection 3.) Disputes under the present Act should not apply to the ongoing arbitration as it may create additional burden of fees on the parties including that of this tribunal.

The contracts are awarded such that the whole large project itself is awarded away to single contractor. This kind of practice delays the projects very much. As for projects are concerned, they should be divided in to independent packages awarded to many able contractors with good history of finishing projects in time.

Dear Sir,
This is a welcome step. In the bill, a provision may please be made in cases when the Tribunal doesnt stick to the time limits prescribed. It is generally seen that the Tribunal so formed by government do not follow the strict time limit. There should be a clause through which the delays by the Tribunal are being penalized.

Thanks
