Defect Liability Period (DLP)?

Many times we observe that, newly made roads won’t even last for 3 months and the contractors are least bothered about repairing of those roads. DPL (Defect Liability Period) is rule set for such contractors. Government can revoke their contracts, if they fail to repair potholes after five complaints. The DLP stipulates that a contractor has to maintain the road free of cost during the specified period, after building it. The DLP for asphalt roads is three years, while that of concrete roads is five. Recently the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) took actions against their contractors on the bases of this rule. However, it seems that contractors in Pune turning a blind eye towards road maintenance, once they are constructed, resulting in damage of roads. If we execute this rule properly in Pune we can get rid of most of the road problem.full_pathholes 2
