According to the corporation, the company violated contract norms pertaining to the Waste to Energy Project at Njaliparambu here. The corporation entered a contract with Zonta in 2019 for biomining and the company has only completed 60 per cent of it. Similarly, the company did not take care of tiny plastic particles as per the norms, the corporation said.

The contract expired in November 2022 and the corporation is of the stand that an extension should not be given as the project got prolonged. The contract amount was Rs 7 crore.

The corporation has already given Rs 1.5 crore, said reports. As the project is stuck in the middle, the remaining amount will not be given, said corporation authorities. They also maintained that the matter has been intimated to the state government.

Earlier, Kollam Corporation had also decided to end the agreement with Zonta for garbage disposal over violation of contract norms.
