Swimming pool at DC's residence is a demo work by Nirmiti Kendra

Sunday, June 06, 2021

Nirmiti Kendra had constructed the Swimming pool at DC's official residence in order to prove cost-effective technology and as a demo work, says Rohini Sindhuri.

In her letter to Regional Commissioner (RC) G C Prakash, who is conducting an inquiry against the allegation, Sindhuri has stated that the execution of the pool at the residence of DC was done by Nirmiti Kendra in January 2021 out of its own funds of Rs 28.72 lakhs in order to prove cost-effective technology and as a demo work. Since there was no space available in the Nirmithi Kendra campus, a very small piece of space was utilised in the campus of DC’s residence.

Nirmiti Kendras are set up in each district for construction and building projects with the use of locally available resources by adopting cost-effective technology. Nirmiti Kendras execute pilot projects to prove locally available resources and by adopting cost-effective technologies and then implement them as a general programme. As per this exact mandate of Nirmiti Kendras, the swimming pools were planned at the district and taluk level about five-year back and were assigned to Nirmiti Kendra Mysuru.
