AHMEDABAD: Around 800 AMC-approved contractors are heading for a show down with the municipal corporation over non-payment of bills to the tune of Rs 50 crore.
A delegation of 200 contractors on Monday met Mayor Himmat Singh Patel and sought his intervention to clear their bills pending for the past one year."We have stopped attending to minor repairs and essential services of the corporation," Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation Contractors Association President Madhusudan Pandya said.
Contractors were forced to stop work for the corporation as they have stopped getting credit for material required for the works. The association also complained that the finance department did not make enough budgetary provisions for the capital and revenue expenditures resulting in problem of cash flow, Pandya said.
