Panel to look into role that can be played by DIMTS
New Delhi: Following objections by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) regarding the status of the Delhi Integrated Multi-modal Transit Service
(DIMTS), the state government has set up a panel to look into the role it can play in carrying out transport projects.
To be headed by Chief Secretary Rakesh Mehta, the six- member panel will decide whether the DIMTS, formed as a special purpose vehicle by the Delhi government in 2004, can work as a consultancy or execute the transport jobs.
The panel will submit the report within next month, Mehta said. The decision to set up the panel was taken following a controversy pertaining to the DIMTS that executed
the BRT project.
The CAG had asked the Delhi government whether DIMTS is functioning in the capacity of a private consultant or as a Government undertaking and its role in the Government`s
Mehta said that DIMTS is not an infrastructure company, but was formed with the intention of providing expertise on projects planned by the government.
