If the project gets delayed then the vendor will be charged 0.5% of the line item value for each day of delay, with a ceiling of 10% of the contract value.

Micro and small enterprises (MSEs) will be given preference in the purchasing process. If the lowest bidder is not an MSE, but an MSE service provider has quoted a price within 15% of the lowest bid, then 100% of the order quantity will be awarded to the MSE bidder, subject to acceptance of the lowest bid price.

The contractor will be responsible for supervising the execution of the contract or appointing an agent that is acceptable to BHEL officials.

In the month of November last year BHEL had invited bids for O&M of 40 MW of Solar PV plant of NLC at Neyveli, Cuddalore District, Tamilnadu.
