Digging

One thing I remember from stays in various cities in India was this story.
1. A foot path or road would be in a bad condition.
2. It would be repaired after 8 months or so.
3. Within 2 weeks of its repair, some one will dig it out.
Back to situation in 1.
Me thinks that goes beyond corruption, apathy and lack of planning. I thought it was sheer sadism on part of local officials.

Anyone else thinks the same.

Re: Digging

In most cities the roads are dug by service providers like mtnl/bsnl,PNG,ISPs etc for either repairing or laying new cables, pipes fiber optic etc. They need to get permission for digging the road from local muncipal bodies and out of the many conditions for getting the permissions the main is to deposit a certain amount per km incase the road is not restored to as it was before digging.
Now the company doing the digging work must be finding it economical in forfeiting the deposit rather then repairing the road.
So after the muncipal deadline the amount goes to the treasury and a tender is floated,approved,road restored and some other company applies for digging permission
Any solution to the above so that we forward it to the muncipal corporations across India

Thumbs down Re: Digging

Once the telecom dept people dug up freshly layed road (couple weeks old, it still had the new tar shine) in front of my house in Bangalore. People were livid and those guys got to hear some real harsh words, police was called in, became a big issue. The road though was never fixed. The helplessness experienced by all my neibors was frustrating.

I will do some 'practical maths' on it and get back. But this still does not explain why no one digs a footpath in bad shape
