The Central Bureau of Investigation filed a corruption case on Saturday against officials of Delhi Jal Board, National Buildings Construction Corporation Limited (NBCC). Federal agents claimed that the accused conspired to grant undue favors to ineligible private companies to make them technically eligible.

The accuser was accused of conspiring to give undue favors to the private company and made it technically eligible (which wasn’t allegedly possible). Further, it was alleged that in December 2017, a tender was issued for SITC of electromagnetic flowmeters and the corresponding O-M operations for five year of Delhi Jal Board.

The CBI in a statement said, “It was also alleged that due to conspiracy of the accused with a said private company and false certificates & fabricated deviation statement issued by NBCC, the said private company qualified and bagged tender worth Rs 38.02 crore.”

The officials found cash in excess of Rs 1.5 crores and jewellery valued at approximately Rs 1.2 crore. Fixed deposits totalling Rs 695,000 were also recovered. Additionally, various property documents were found at the home of the then General Manager, NBCC.
