No bids have been received for the 1,000 pillar mandapam project for which Rs.18 crore has been sanctioned by the TTD Board the last date was put to March 1, 2016.
The management was taken aback when it found that there were no takers for the work. The unique nature of construction that demands both civil and sithapati works in additional to ornamentation activity is believed to be the main reason for the reluctance on the part of constructors from bidding. TTD Chief Engineer said that efforts were on to re-invite tenders in a day or two. If every thing goes on well, the tender process will be completed by March 11.
