Mumbai: BMC To Review Bids For Waste-To-Energy Project At Mulund Dumping Ground

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will review biddings it has received for its waste-to-energy projects at Mulund and Deonar dumping ground. The BMC received two biddings for Mulund dumping ground, while nothing has been received for Deonar dumping ground.

According to a civic official, there has been poor response due to frequent change in the GST rate. “Only two European companies participated in the bidding for Deonar ground,” said the official, adding that the civic body will review the bidding.
