He said that most of the “commissions” prepared through the construction of roads on which the NHA depended. He said that there was a lot of corruption in the award of contracts through manual bidding. The introduction of e-bidding system would bring transparency in the conduct of contracts. It will end the menace of “commission” and bribery. Later, human interaction in the billing system will reduce the incidence of bribery.
