       computational errors have been made, whether the documents have been properly signed and
       whether the bids are generally in order and conforms to all the terms, conditions and specifications
       of the bid documents without any deviations.

       The Employer will, thereafter check and ascertain whether the bidder fulfils the Eligibility criteria
       and other requirements specified under ITB Clause 2.0. The Bids submitted by the Bidders who
       meet the Eligibility Criteria set under ITB Clause 2.0 shall only qualify for consideration and further
       technical evaluation by the Employer.

       The Employer's determination of a Bid's responsiveness is to be based on the contents of the Bid
       itself without recourse to extrinsic evidence. If a Bid is not substantially responsive, it will be
       rejected by the Employer and may not subsequently be made responsive by the Bidder by
       correction of the non-conformity.

11.2   Prior to the detailed evaluation, the Employer will determine whether each bid is of acceptable
       quality, is generally complete and is substantially responsive to the bidding documents. For
       purposes of this determination, a substantially responsive bid is one that conforms to all the terms,
       conditions and specifications of the bidding documents without material deviations, objections,
       conditionalities or reservations.

       A material deviation, objection, conditionality or reservation is one (i) that affects in any substantial
       way the scope, quality or performance of the Contract; (ii) that limits in any substantial way,
       inconsistent with the Bidding Documents, the Employer's rights or the successful Bidder's
       obligations under the Contract; or (iii) whose rectification would unfairly affect the competitive
       position of other Bidders who are presenting substantially responsive Bids.

       The Employer may waive any minor informality, non-conformity or irregularity in a Bid that does not
       constitute a material deviation, and that does not prejudice or affect the relative ranking of any
       Bidder as a result of the technical and commercial evaluation, as per clause 11.1 of ITB.

       Also, if any discrepancy is found between the Hard Copies of the offline documents viz. DD
       towards Cost of bid document & DD / BG towards Bid Security / EMD, Power of Attorney, and
       scanned copy of same uploaded online, then the online bid may be liable for rejection.

       clarification and the response shall be in writing, and no change in the price or substance of the bid
       shall be sought, offered or permitted.

       be done based on the item-wise Price/ Total Price as per BOQ_XXX: Schedule of Quantities
       & Price.
11.5   All applicable taxes, duties and levies as mentioned in BOQ_XXXX i.e. Schedule of Quantities &
       Prices shall be considered for the purpose of evaluation of bids.
11.6   Any adjustments in price that result from the above procedures shall be added, for purposes of
       comparative evaluation only, to arrive at an `Evaluated Bid Price'. Bid prices quoted by Bidder shall
       remain unaltered.

11.7   Arithmetical errors will be rectified on the following basis:

       If there is a discrepancy between the unit price and the total price which is obtained by
       multiplying unit price and quantity, or between subtotal and the total price, the unit or subtotal
       price as the case may be shall prevail, and the total price shall be corrected. If there is a
       discrepancy between words and figure of the unit rates, the unit rates in words will
       prevail. If bidder does not accept the correction of errors, its bid will be rejected and the Bid
       Security / EMD will be forfeited in accordance with ITB sub-clause 4.5.

             from the circumstances of the case etc.

7.4 Show Cause Notice

      Once the proposal for issuance of Show Cause Notice is approved by the Competent Authority , a `Show
      Cause Notice' (as per format at Appendix-II of these guidelines) shall be issued to the delinquent Agency
      by the Competent Authority or by a person authorized by the Competent Authority for the said purpose.

      Further, the Agency shall be given an opportunity for Oral hearing to present its case in person, if it so
      desires, and the date for Oral Hearing shall necessarily be indicated in the Show Cause Notice.

     The purpose of issuing the Show Cause Notice is only that the Agency concerned shall be given an
     opportunity to explain their stand before any action is taken. The grounds on which action is proposed to
     be taken shall be disclosed to the Agency inviting representation and after considering that
     representation, orders may be passed. Such orders require only the satisfaction of the authority that

     reminder shall be given with further period of 10 days thereafter if no reply is received action for
     processing ex-parte against the concerned Agency shall be initiated.
7.5 Speaking Order

      The speaking order (reasoned order) for banning the business dealing with the Agency shall be issued by
      the Competent Authority or by a person authorized for the said purpose.
      The decision regarding banning of business dealings taken after the issue of a Show Cause Notice and
      consideration of representation, if any, in reply there to, shall be communicated to the Agency concerned
      along with a reasoned order. The fact that there presentation has been considered shall invariably be
     mentioned in the communication. Also the fact that if no reply was received to the Show Cause Notice
     shall invariably be indicated in the final communication to the Agency. The format for initiation of banning
     of business dealing is placed at Appendix-III
7.6 Period of banning
     In case banning is processed for violation of provisions of Integrity pact or due to corrupt or fraudulent
     practices, the Competent Authority shall decide on the period of banning on case to case basis depending
     on the gravity of the case and considering the implications for NHPC on account of the act/omission on
     the part of the agency, intention of the Agency as established from the circumstances of the case etc. The
     period of banning shall not be less than 6 months and shall not exceed 2 years and in case termination of
     contract due to poor performance the period of banning shall be for 5 years. For contracts awarded to
     JV/Consortium, a constituent of the JV shall be permitted to participate in the bidding process if it has not
     been banned on grounds of its role and responsibility in the tendering process for which the Joint Venture
     has been banned in Past. In case if the Joint Venture which has been banned does not indicate the roles
     and responsibility of individual Partner(s) then, the partner of the banned Joint Venture shall only be
     allowed to participate in the bidding process if its participation share is less than 35%.

      In case the information/documents submitted by Agency in competing for the tender found to be
      false/forged then NHPC, without prejudice to any other rights or remedies it may possess, shall recover
      from Agency the cost incurred in carrying out physical assessment for establishing veracity of such
      information/documents. In case Agency refuses to reimburse such cost to NHPC then banning period of
      Agency shall be extended by another one year.
7.7 Effect of Banning

       As far as possible, the existing ongoing contract(s) with the Agency may continue unless the Competent
       Authority, having regard to the circumstances of the case, decides otherwise, keeping in view contractual
       and legal issues which may arise thereof. In case the existing Contracts are allowed to continue, the
       suspension/Banning of Business Dealing along with default of the Contractor shall be recorded in the
       experience certificate issued for the work.
       The Agency, ( after issue of the order of banning of business dealings)would not be allowed to participate
       in any future tender enquiry and if the Agency has already participated in tender process as stand-alone
       OR constituent of joint venture and the price bids are not opened, his techno-commercial bid will be
       rejected and price bid will be returned unopened. However, where the price bids of Agency have been
       opened prior to order of banning, bids of Agency shall not be rejected and tendering process shall be
       continued unless Competent Authority having regard to the circumstances of the case decides otherwise
       keeping in view the Contractual, Legal issues which may arise thereafter. However, in case the
       suspension /Banning is due to default of an Agency for the provisions under Integrity Pact and the
       Agency happens to be Lowest Bidder (L1), the tendering process shall be annulled and fresh tenders shall
       be invited.

       During the Suspension/ Banning period, if it is found at any stage that Agency has participated in tender
       enquiry under a different name then such Agency would immediately be debarred from the
       tender/contract and its Bid Security/Performance Security would be forfeited. Payment, if any, made shall
       also be recovered.
       After Suspension/ Banning order, the Suspended/ Banned Agency shall not be allowed to participate as
       Sub-Vendor/Sub-Contractor in the tenders.
        Further, if the Suspended/ Banned agency is an approved Sub-Vendor under any Contract for such
       equipment/component/service, the Main Contractor shall not be permitted to place work order/Purchase
       order/Contract on the Suspended/ Banned agency as a Sub-Vendor /Sub-Contractor after the date of
       Suspension/ Banning even though the name of the party has been approved as a Sub-Vendor /Sub-
       Contractor earlier.
       There would be no bar on procuring the spares and awarding Contracts towards Annual Maintenance
       (AMC)/O&M/Repair works on Agencies pertaining to the packages for which they have been banned
       provided the Equipment has been supplied by such Agency.
       Banning of business dealing shall not be applicable to the Subsidiary Company of the Banned agency
                 provided subsidiary company has not participated on the strength of the Banned agency. However, in
                 case of a default by a Sub-Contractor, the banning shall be applicable to the Sub-Contractor as well as the
                 Lead Partner of the concerned JV or the Sole bidder as the case may be.
         7.8 Hosting at NHPC website
                 The concerned unit shall forward the name and details of the Agency (ies) banned along with period and
                 area reasons of banning to IT&C Division of Corporate Office for displaying the same on the NHPC website.
8.0   Appeals against the Decision of the Competent Authority.
               The Agency may file an appeal against the order of the Competent Authority banning of business dealing
              before Appellate Authority. Such an appeal shall be preferred within30 (Thirty) Days from the date of receipt
              of the order of banning of business dealing .Appellate Authority would consider the appeal if convinced may
              constitute another committee for further investigation. Based on the recommendation of the committee
              Appellate Authority shall pass appropriate order which shall be communicated to the Agency as well as the
              Competent Authority (as per format enclosed as Appendix-IV with these guidelines).
9.0   Circulation of the names of Agencies with whom Business Dealings have been banned
                The name of the concerned banned agency shall also be shared with MOP and other PSU in the sector and
                all the units of NHPC.
                The provisions of this policy supersede and will have overriding effect on all earlier guidelines, procedures &
                system issued for the similar purpose.
