3. Recommendation: Outsourcing the operations were attempted when the project was active. There were no credible proposals against the tender. At the end of project duration, M/s Pointec came up with their proposal, however, it exceeded the revenue that could be generated from the plant operations. This viability gap needs to be either filled by revising the tariff or by allocating additional funds. The Terminal Evaluation report has been shared with the IP, with the proposed recommendation for consideration.
