parts, rectify/reconstruct the defective work that may develop of his own
construction or those of his sub Contractors approved by the INKEL arising
solely from faulty materials or workmanship. If it is necessary for the
Contractor to rectify/reconstruct any defective portions of the work under the
contract, the provision of this condition shall apply to the portions of work so
replaced or renewed until the expiration of three months from the date of such
replacement or renewal or until the end of the above mentioned period of Twenty
four months, whichever may be later. If any defects be not remedied within a
reasonable time the INKEL may proceed to do the work at Contractor’s risk and
expense, but without prejudice to any other rights which the INKEL may have
against the Contractor in respect of such defects. The Contractor shall bear the
cost of such repairs / rectification carried out on his behalf at site. Immediately
upon expiry of the maintenance period the Company shall issue a final certificate

the contract, then it shall be lawful for the INKEL to terminate the contract
forthwith under written notice and to proceed with the balance of the work at the
risk and cost of the contractor. During the course of execution of the job, in case
the Contractor has done any substandard work, he shall be asked in writing to
dismantle and re-do the same at his own expenses. If the Contractor fails to
comply with the above instructions immediately, then the INKEL shall proceed
with the above rectification work, other wise. Similarly, if the Contractor goes
slowly on any particular item or items of work, the INKEL shall have the right to
execute this item or items through another agency or agencies, including its own
department.

2.04.07.02 BACK CHARGING THE CONTRACTOR

Extra cost and expenses incurred for completing the work or balance work or
carrying out the rectification of any work as mentioned above through another

account in ascertaining the amount of the contract price.

2.04.08.02 ORDER FOR VARIATIONS TO BE IN WRITING

No such variation shall be made by the Contractor without an order in writing of


the Consultant/INKEL, provided that no order in writing shall be required for
increase or decrease in the quantity of any item of work where such increase or
decrease is the result of the actual quantities exceeding or being less than those
stated in the bill of quantities which are estimates. In such cases, the Contractor
shall be paid only for the actual quantity of work done as certified by the
Consultant at the accepted unit item rates and no compensation shall be
allowed. Provided also that if for any reason the Consultant shall consider it
desirable to give any such order verbally, the Contractor shall comply with such

agent to assist the INKEL in making such measurement, and shall furnish all
particulars required by either of them. Should the Contractor not attend or
neglect or omit to send such agents, then the measurement made by the INKEL
or approved by him shall be taken to be the correct measurement of the work.
For the purpose of measuring such permanent work as is to be measured by
record and drawings, the INKEL representative shall prepare records and
drawings month by month and the Contractor, as and when called upon to do so
in writing, shall within fourteen days, attend to examine and agree such records
and drawings with the Consultant’s representative and shall sign the same when
so agreed. If the Contractor does not so attend to examine and agree such
records and drawings they shall be taken to be correct. If, after examination of
such records and drawings, the Contractor does not agree to the same or does
not sign the same as agreed, they shall nevertheless be taken to be correct,
unless the Contractor shall, within fourteen days of such examination, lodge with
the INKEL representative for decision by the INKEL, notice in writing of the
respects in which such records and drawings are claimed by him to be incorrect.
