Let me recount one more recent incident.
This PSU wanted to buy water-coolers. We participated in the tender.
A day after the opening date we rang up to find out the fate of our quote.
They have innumerable landlines - but nobody would pick up the phone.
And when they did, they said they didn't have time to open the tenders.
We again knocked their doors. This time they said they had received only two bids
against their tender and that they need to have atleast three competitive bids.
And in case they had to decide with two bids, they need to get approval from
their Managing Director.
The Managing Director is away for a week in Delhi on official work..........
God Save PSU-s.
