specified in the Contract, or within any extension thereof granted by the Purchaser.

ii. If the Supplier fails to perform any other obligation(s) under the Contract.

iii. If the Supplier, in the judgment of the Purchaser has engaged incorrupt or fraudulent
practices in competing for or in executing the Contract.
31

61.2 In the event the Purchaser terminates the Contract in whole or in part, the Purchaser may
procure, upon such terms and in such manner, as it deems appropriate, Materials / equipment or
services similar to those undelivered, and the Supplier will be liable to the Purchaser for any
excess costs for such similar Materials / equipment or Services. However, the Supplier will
continue performance of the Contract to the extent not terminated.

62. Termination for Insolvency


62.1 The Purchaser may at any time terminate the Contract by giving written notice to the Supplier if
the Supplier becomes bankrupt or otherwise insolvent. In this event, termination will be without
compensation to the supplier, provided that such termination will not prejudice or not affect any

is terminated, and date upon which termination becomes effective.

63.2 However the Materials / equipment that are complete and ready for shipment within thirty (30)
days after the supplier's receipt of notice of termination will be accepted by the Purchaser at the
Contract terms and prices.

64. Force Majeure

64.1 The Supplier will not be liable for forfeiture of its performance security, penalty for late delivery,
or termination for default if and to the extent that its delay in performance or other failure to
perform its obligations under the Contact is the result of an event of Force Majeure.

such condition and the cause thereof. Unless otherwise directed by the Purchaser in writing, the
Supplier will continue to perform its obligations under the Contract as far as is reasonably
practice, and will seek all reasonable alternative means for performance not prevented by the
Force Majeure event.

No price variance will be allowed during the period of force Majeure.

62. Settlement of Disputes

be settled in accordance with the Arbitration and Conciliation Act. 1996. The Arbitral
Tribunal will consist of three Arbitrators one each to be appointed by the Purchaser and the
supplier the Third Arbitrator will be chosen by the two Arbitrators so appointed by the
parties and will acts as Presiding Arbitrator. In case of failure of the two Arbitrators
appointed by the parties to reach upon a consensus within period of 30 days from the
appointment of the Arbitrator appointed subsequently, the Presiding Arbitrator will be
appointed by The Institution of Engineers (India).

(b) If one of the Parties fails to appoint its Arbitrator in pursuance of Sub-Clause (a) within 30
days after receipt of the notice of the appointment of its Arbitrator by The Institution of
Engineers (India), will appoint the Arbitrator. A certified copy of the order of the Institution
of Engineers (India), making such an appointment will be furnished to each to the parties.

(c) Arbitration Proceedings will be held at Purchaser’s Headquarters, and the language of the
Arbitration Proceedings and that of all documents and communication between the parties
will be English.

(d) The decision of the majority of Arbitrators will be final and binding upon both parties. The
cost and expenses of Arbitration Proceedings will be paid as determined by the Arbitral
Tribunal. However, the expenses incurred by each party in connection with the preparation,
presentation etc., of its proceedings as also the fees and expenses paid to the Arbitrator
appointed by such party or on its behalf will be borne by each party itself.

(e) Where the value of the Contract is Rs. One Crore and below, the disputes or differences
arising will be referred to the Sole Arbitrator. The Sole Arbitrator should be appointed by
agreement between the parties; failing such agreement, by the appointing authority namely
The Institution of Engineers (India).

62.5 Notwithstanding any reference to arbitration herein,


(a) The parties will continue to perform their respective obligations under the Contract unless
they otherwise agree; and

(b) The Purchaser will pay the Supplier any monies due the Supplier.

63. Jurisdiction

writing or by cable, telex, or facsimile and confirmed in writing to the other party’s address.

64.2 A notice will be effective when delivered or on the notice's effective date, whichever is later.

65. Foreign Exchange

65.1 No Foreign Exchange is available or expected for this purchase. Offers, which do not require
release of F.E. or procurement of import license by APTRANSCO, only will be considered. Where
some of the components are to be imported the manufacturer will have to make their own

the Bidder's works, raw materials, process of manufacture of all the accessories and for
conducting necessary tests as detailed herein.

7.2 The Supplier shall keep the Purchaser informed in advance of the time of starting and of the
progress of manufacture of accessories in its various stages so that arrangements could be made
for inspection.

7.3 The supplier shall give 15 days advance, intimation to enable the purchaser to depute his
representative for witnessing acceptance and routine tests.

7.4 No material shall be despatched from its point of manufacture before it has been satisfactorily
inspected and tested, unless the inspection is waived off by the Purchaser in writing. In the later
case also, the Materials shall be dispatched only after satisfactory testing for all tests specified
herein has been completed and approved by the Purchaser.

7.5 The Acceptance tests shall be carried out on all the materials offered, by selecting the samples
as per relevant IS specified, at random. If any sample drawn does not pass the acceptance tests,
the sample will be rejected and another sample of the same material from same lot shall be
selected at random to repeat the “Acceptance tests”. If the second sample also fails in the same
Test, the entire materials of that item in that lot offered for Inspection will be rejected.

7.6 The acceptance of any quantity of accessories shall in no way relieve the Supplier of his
responsibility for meeting all the requirements of this specification and shall not prevent
subsequent rejection if such hardware fittings are later found to be defective.
