New Delhi, Apr 27 (ILNS): The Supreme Court will today hear a plea filed by the Health Care Medical Device Pvt Ltd against the March 16 order of the High Court of Madhya Pradesh, whereby the High Court had dismissed their petition against the order of January 22, 2021, in which the company was blacklisted for two years.
The company was debarred from participating in future tenders for two years and the security deposit of the petitioner company was forfeited.
The submission of the petitioner company is that it participated in the tender issued by the Madhya Pradesh Public Health Service Corporation limited for the supply of COVID-19 gloves to various government hospitals in MP. The tender submitted by the petitioner was lowest and its bid was accepted.
Thereafter, the petitioner supplied 65 percent of the goods, but could not supply remaining goods on time on account of force majeure, which means its plant broke down as well as because of the imposition of night curfew at the place of manufacture. This will be an interesting case to watch. ILNS\AV\SJ\RJ
