The Union Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry has blacklisted two firms involved in the ill-fated NBCC Green View project in Gurgaon, barring them from receiving any work from the ministry for two years for substandard work.
Supreme Infrastructure India Ltd and Ramacivil Construction Pvt Ltd have also been barred from receiving work from the ministry’s attached entities, autonomous bodies, and Central Public Sector Enterprises.
IIT, Delhi declared the NBCC Green View building in Sector-37D unsafe, and residents were asked to vacate their apartments. The National Buildings Construction Corporation (NBCC) informed the housing ministry that these two companies had used substandard workmanship resulting in poor quality building and causing problems for NBCC homebuyers.
Following that, the ministry issued show cause notices, requesting an explanation for why the companies should be barred from doing business with the ministry. After receiving responses from these firms and reviewing the NBCC’s submissions and the expert committee’s report, the ministry issued an order to backlist the companies until March 29, 2025.
