For the leading builders with wide experience in executing large projects for the last about 48 years, both in India and abroad using conventional methods and materials, the outcome was always different. Under the discriminative subjective tendering and outdated contract system the worst happened. When the industrialized prefabricated newly proven building materials having Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) or the Indian Standards Institute (ISI) norms and marks were implemented the cost went up phenomenally.
Under turnkey lumpsum contracts, it is now proved that the obsolete conventional methods, traditional materials in use, the discriminative tender notices and primitive contract documents drafted during the pre-independence era and that too some 200 years ago for extremely limited purposes successfully prevented the introduction of new proven multi-quality materials and fully protected the ills, evils and corruption due to subjective quality controls.
They are the main roadblocks in the creation of simple mass social housing units and the eradication of slums. This inhibiting system must first be immediately scrapped. The conventional subjective and discriminative tender notices and contract documents are now not legal tenders when compared to the turnkey lump sum offers for the use of multi-quality, multi-benefit proven factory made components having BIS (ISI) norms and marks. When a new competitive development plan is in place, the Properties in Kerala
will be able to attract more investments in the long run.
Conventional tender notice and contract system are not legal now because in that system, the clients fixes the terms, conditions and rates and signs a contract for a non-existing product on imaginary, fake and vague terms with subjective personality-oriented descriptive quality controls against existing industrial dissimilar products having BIS (ISI) norms and marks, which can be seen by the eyes, felt by hand and scientifically tested before finalization of the contract deed.
