Modifications to the tender criteria reduce “Make in India” goods

More than a dozen “restrictive and discriminatory” terms that excluded local vendors from the bidding process have been called out by the Union Government.

The Public Procurement (Preference to Make in India) Order, 2017, which was created to safeguard the interests of regional suppliers, was broken when the tender requirements were changed.

The Ministry of Railways issued a directive last week instructing General Managers of all Zonal Railways and Production Units to ensure that the PPP-MII Order was followed by all procuring agencies throughout the railway network and to refrain from including any “restrictive and discriminatory” conditions that would disadvantage local suppliers.
