Monopoly broken…

Yes, Finally BBMP has broken the Monopoly of 3 NGO’s ABC (animal birth control) program in Bangalore.
From today a new group from Ahmadabad as been appointed to do a ABC for street dogs, With this a long term Monopoly in doing the ABC from 3 NGO’s has ended, This is a great news as there was always a suspicious about these NGO’s regarding the misuse of PUBLIC money.
Another highlight with this new group is instant ABC program; currently they charge Rs 375 for male dog and Rs 395 for female ones.

Let’s wait and watch the progress of this new team.

    All these days ABC (animal birth control) was done only by 3 NGO of Bangalore & no others had given a chance for that, So i call it as monopoly.Again this was not through any public tender it was just based on BMP officials choice.

    @Shadow: “Again this was not through any public tender it was just based on BMP officials choice.”

    Could you please provide some evidence of this? Else, it’s only your personal opinion and not fact.

    @Shadow: It was a statement you made and hence the onus is on you to substantiate the accusation you have raised. I only wished to point out the obvious.

    OK, I still stick to my comments as i never saw any Tender regarding ABC posted on any of the news paper.
    BTW do you belong to any of those 3 NGO’s ?

    Unwelcome comment by the blogger. Simple google search proves the bloggers personel opininon. This website proves tenders were invited.

    “BTW do you belong to any of those 3 NGO’s ?”– Its not healthy question.

    The basic Question. When there are 3 NGO’s Providing Serivce. How come the Word Monopoly exists? Better hav some gyan on Monopoly. Better post some forwarded e-mails, instead of wrong Info.

    A question which may sound stupid, but I’ve always wanted to ask. Do these “ABC-ed” dogs NOT bite? Or not bark? Or not chase bikers?
    “Birth control” sounds like the dogs won’t be able to reproduce – that’s it. So they’ll live their lives, and die their natural deaths. After that, what? If this works out as per script, there won’t be next generation street dogs (as they have been sterilized); or in other words, they would be getting extinct eventually. Which is exactly what culling will do, but with immediate effect. Unless the NGOs are planning to breed these street dogs in their backyard, to regularly release onto the streets again, and to be “ABC-ed” again. So what’s the point? Or am I missing one? Someone enlighten please.

    AFAIK, the “3 NGOs” had a contract with the BMP to implement the ABC program. Was there ever any “exclusivity clause”?

    You seem to imply that there was collusion between these organizations and the BMP disallowing anyone else from entering the scene. “Misuse of public money” implies that there were payments made under the table?
    In reality There were complaints from some of these NGOs about delayed payments from the BMP. I remember reading reports of at least one of the NGOs pulling out of the program because of differences with the BMP. Yet you seem to believe that there is a conspiracy by the NGOs to not let anyone else into this “business”?
    I find it easier to believe that if the BMP did not involve other organizations, it is because of their inaction, or even inability to interest other organizations because of issues like those with the currenty involved NGOs.

    No, before you ask I am not from any “NGO”. Surprising that that word is almost considered an insult nowadays.

    @Shadow: As ignorance of the law is no excuse, so is ignorance of publicly available fact no excuse for your unvalidated comment.

    And when all else fails, attack the messenger. Such an erudite and original thought that!

    @Naren, Salil & Someone: Thank you. I wonder if any fault lies with the BBMP?
