Mr. Rajeev Chawla’s mischievous role again in eProcurement tender in GoK to HP.

Mr. Rajeev Chawla’s mischievous role again in eProcurement tender in GoK to HP.
NOW THE details of eProcurement Tender awarded to HP.

Antares System a Local Company in Bangalore has been marketing their eProcurement / eTendering solution through KEONICS and ITI Limited. And as on date all the orders are on KEONICS and ITI Limited and from them Antares get on back to back basis.

Antares e-tendering/e-procurement product, TenderWizard (also called as simply TW), has been deployed at more than 20 departments in Govt of Karnataka (GOK). Some of these depts are using this system for their tender activities for more than 2 years. Almost all of them use the system in an ASP mode and pay us rental every month. Most of these initiatives have been deployed with KEONICS as supplier. Antares has MOU with KEONICS providing solution/support for the same (Antares is in the background with KEONICS).

By Rajeev Chawla’s Mischeifs:

C1 has signed a MOU with KEONICS (Though KEONICS Chairperson exposed them) probably utilising the help of Mr.Rajeev Chawla and Antares MOU has been Withdrawn. Even C1 went to ITI Limited and curtailed Antares MOU.

Why Rajeev Chawla did not support a Home Growm Technology Antares who are working with KEONICS ?

MONEY MIGHT BE INVOLVED HERE !!

Shows how Rajeev Chawla CORRUPT politicians and CORRUPT eGovernance also in GoK !!!

Mr. Rajive Chawla’s mischievous role all the way as he done in Bangalore One and now in eProcurement tender.

As we all know that HP has been awarded tender for eProcurement in Karnataka State whereas HP does not have software or at least do not have background to claim so.

As you all are aware that HP has been awarded tender by the Karnataka Govt. despite they were 2-1/2 time higher i.e. Rs. 32 Crores than the next player M/s Wipro Limited who was less than Rs. 20 crores. You know obvious reasons for the same, particularly knowing fully well background of Mr. Rajeev Chawla. The HP has been granted tender despite the below noted disqualifications :-
• HP does not have any e-procurement experience in India.
• Their demonstrated software which is being used in Japan only, which has no relevance in India.
• Three other players with experience in India i.e. Wipro, C1 India and Antares have been disqualified on pre-qualification and technical grounds. This is surprising as these are the only player with any e-procurement experience in India.
• NISG who was the consultant for this tender was also the consultant for the Govt. of Chattisgarh tender, both of which were called around the same time. In Chhattisgarh Wipro Limited has been awarded contract for mere1.58 Crores per year.
It is surprising that HP, who does not have a solution, was qualified technically where as the other players who have the solution were disqualified.
• The requirement in both the tenders are the same, however the qualification criteria in Govt. of Karnataka were altered to favor HP.

Antares has been marketing their eprocurement /eTendering  solution through KEONICS and ITI Limited. And As on date all the orders  are on KEONICS and ITI Limited and from them Antares get on back to back \nbasis. C1 has signed a MOU with KEONICS (Though KEONICS Chairperson  exposed them) probably utilising the help of Mr.Rajeev Chawla and Antares MOU \nhas been Withdrawn. Even C1 went to ITI Limited and curtailed Antares  MOU.

Antares wings are clipped. Antares cannot participate in any  of the forthcoming tenders like Government of Madhya Pradesh (already Announed) and Government of Chattisgarh (PWC has finalised the tender document through NISG and gave the same to CHIPS).

Antares understand that the Secretary of MCIT, goverrnment of India is behind the development with ITI Limited and C1 might have favoured them.

Antares realise, there is no encoragement for a home Grown Technology in India and it is true that honestt man comes last.

Well it is very diffficult to confront C1 as they have money and muscle power.

• Both Wipro and C1, who were disqualified by Govt. of Karnataka were qualified in the Govt. of Chattisgarh tender, both of which were prepared by NISG.
• The price of HP is way higher than the other players. HP bid was the only one left. This is the reason only HPs bid was opened.

IS THIS AMOUNTS to TRANSPARENCY ? and ACCOUNTABILITY ? What Rajeev Chawla did here ?

Did Rajeev Chawlaand Associates paid off any in Govt. of Karnataka to award this contract to HP which has no experience in eProcurement in INDIA ?
