Unless the roads are constructed as per the specifications and codes, the contracts are not treated as complete. To ensure the construction quality, Consultants (Authority’s Engineer/ Independent Engineer) are appointed by the Ministry and its executing agencies for day to day supervision of the works at site. Deficiencies, if any, observed during such examination / supervision are brought to the notice of the Concessionaires / Contractors for taking up necessary corrective measures.
