Writ Petition filed in the nature of Mandamus, to direct the 1st respondent namely, the Tamil Nadu Medical Service Corporation Ltd., (A Government of Tamil Nadu Undertaking), to reject the bids of the 3rd respondent, M/s.Padmavathi Hospitality and Facilities Management Services, Chennai, (Writ Petitioner in W.P.No.24412 of 2019) and the 4th respondent, M/s.Krystal Integrated Services Pvt.

Affidavit filed in support of W.P.No.24412 of 2019:

3. In the affidavit filed by the Partner and Authorized representative of the Writ Petitioner, M/s.Padamavathi Hospitality & Facilities Management Services, it had been stated that the 1st respondent, Tamil Nadu Medical Service Corporation Limited had floated a Tender for outsourcing of house keeping and security services vide bid reference No.432/outsourcing/DME/TNMSC/Engg/2019 dated 19.02.2019 for 94 Government hospitals, schools and college for nursing under the control of the Directorate of Medical Education. It was claimed that the tender document stated that the price bids will have to be submitted for five different zones, namely zones 1 to 5.

4. The petitioner offered their bid for all the five zones. The price bids were opened on 04.07.2019. The 4th respondent emerged as successful bidder for Zone 1 to Zone 4. The petitioner emerged as successful bidder for Zone 5. The petitioner claimed that the 4th respondent had submitted his bid without including the Goods and Service Taxes (GST). The 4th respondent had submitted their bid by stating GST as 'zero'. The petitioner gave a representation on 11.07.2019, claiming that the petitioner is the lowest bidder and the 4th respondent had not included tax and duties and consequently must be considered as disqualified. It was claimed that if the 4th respondent was disqualified, the petitioner would emerge successful even in zone 1 to zone 4. The petitioner claimed that the tender document itself, in particular Form F clearly stated that when the bid is submitted, applicable taxes would also have to be included. It was stated that though 6 bidders had participated, only the 4th respondent had submitted their bid without including GST. The 1st respondent had issued a communication to the petitioner dated 14.08.2019, whereby they informed that the 4th respondent had been called for negotiation and the 4th respondent had revised their price for Zone 1 to Zone 4 by submitting revised bid with GST as '0 %'. The 4th respondent claimed that the 4th respondent had justified non-inclusion of GST placing reliance on Government of India Notification in GST No.12 of 2017 dated 28.06.2017 read with amendment dated 25.01.2018. The petitioner claimed that this procedure adopted by the 1st respondent was illegal.

Counter affidavit of the 4th respondent:

36. The 1st respondent had also verified the revised prices with Zero GST and with GST, if it becomes applicable. It was found that in the opinion of the 1st respondent, the bid offered by the 4th respondent need not be rejected. It has also been pointed out by the learned Senior Counsel for the 4th respondent that they would take up the burden of payment of GST. At this stage, this Court is not examining whether GST is applicable or not applicable for the Service for which the tender had been floated. This Court is not prepared to examine whether the prices offered by the 4th respondent and by the petitioner for Zone 1 to Zone 4 and Zone 5 respectively are competitive prices or not. They are to be decided only by the Tender Accepting Authority. This Court cannot substitute itself for the Tender Accepting Authority. Once the Tender Accepting Authority had decided not to reject the bid offered by the 4th respondent and had passed an order under Section 10 of the Tamil Nadu Transparency in Tenders Act, 1998, then, any aggrieved party can file an appeal as provided under Section 11 of the Tamil Nadu Transparency in Tenders Act, 1998. Both the Writ Petitioners have failed to do so. The scope of the Writ Petition cannot be expanded to determine whether the bid quoted by the 4th respondent is legal or illegal. The Writ Court while exercising its jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India cannot venture into a roving examination of the facts and also cannot venture into applicability of certain provisions of law or not.

37. In 2017 4 SCC 318, Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation Limited (TANGEDCO) Rep.by its Chairman and Managing Director and Another V. CSEPDI-TRISHE Consortium Rep by its Managing Director and Another, the Hon'ble Supreme Court had observed as follows:

'37. Before parting with the case we are constrained to add something. We do so with immense pain. The respondent, before finalisation of the financial bid submitted series of representations and seeing the silence of the owner it knocked at the doors of the writ court which directed for consideration of the representations. We are disposed to think that the High Court at that stage should have exercised caution. If the courts would exercise power of judicial review in such a manner it is most likely to cause confusion and also bring jeopardy in public interest. An aggrieved party can approach the Court at the appropriate stage, not when the bids are being considered. We do not intend to specify. It is appreciable the owner in certain kind of tenders call the bidders for negotiations to show fairness transparently. But the present case is not one of such nature. Once the price bid was opened, a bidder could not have submitted representations on his own and seek a mandamus from the Court to take certain aspects into consideration. We have stressed this aspect only to highlight the role of the Court keeping in mind the established principle of restraint.'

38. In 2019 SCC Online SC 494, Caretel Infotech Ltd., V. Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited and Others, the Hon'ble Supreme Court, observed as follows:

38. We consider it appropriate to make certain observations in the context of the nature of dispute which is before us. Normally parties would be governed by their contracts and the tender terms, and really no writ would be maintainable under Article 226 of the Constitution of India. In view of Government and public sector enterprises venturing into economic activities, this Court found it appropriate to build in certain checks and balances of fairness in procedure. It is this approach which has given rise to scrutiny of tenders in writ proceedings under Article 226 of the Constitution of India. It, however, appears that the window has been opened too wide as almost every small or big tender is now sought to be challenged in writ proceedings almost as a matter of routine. This in turn, affects the efficacy of commercial activities of the public sectors, which may be in competition with the private sector. This could hardly have been the objective in mind. An unnecessary, close scrutiny of minute details, contrary to the view of the tendering authority, makes awarding of contracts by government and public sectors a cumbersome exercise, with long drawn out litigation at the threshold. The private sector is competing often in the same field. Promptness and efficiency levels in private contracts, thus, often tend to make the tenders of the public sector a non-competitive exercise. This works to a great disadvantage to the Government and the public sector.

39. In Afcons Infrastructure Ltd. v. Nagpur Metro Rail Corpn. Ltd. [Afcons Infrastructure Ltd. v. Nagpur Metro Rail Corpn. Ltd., (2016) 16 SCC 818] , this Court has expounded further on this aspect, while observing that the deci

sion-making process in accepting or rejecting the bid should not be interfered with. Interference is permissible only if the decision-making process is arbitrary or irrational to an extent that no responsible authority, acting reasonably and in accordance with law, could have reached such a decision. It has been cautioned that constitutional courts are expected to exercise restraint in interfering with the administrative decision and ought not to substitute their view for that of the administrative authority. Mere disagreement with the decision-making process would not suffice.' (Emphasis Supplied) 39. In 2019 SCC Online SC 1133, Silppi Constructions Contractors V. Union of India and Another, the Hon'ble Supreme Court, observed as follows: '19. This Court being the guardian of fundamental rights is duty bound to interfere when there is arbitrariness, irrationality, mala fides and bias. However, this Court in all the aforesaid decisions has cautioned time and again that courts should exercise a lot of restraint while exercising their powers of judicial review in contractual or commercial matters. This Court is normally loathe to interfere in contractual matters unless a clear-cut case of arbitrariness or mala fides or bias or irrationality is made out. One must remember that today many public sector undertakings compete with the private industry. The contracts entered into between private parties are not subject to scrutiny under writ jurisdiction. No doubt, the bodies which are State within the meaning of Article 12 of the Constitution are bound to act fairly and are amenable to the writ jurisdiction of superior courts but this discretionary power must be exercised with a great deal of restraint and caution. The Courts must realise their limitations and the havoc which needless interference in commercial matters can cause. In contracts involving technical issues the courts should be even more reluctant because most of us in judges' robes do not have the necessary expertise to adjudicate upon technical issues beyond our domain. As laid down in the judgments cited above the courts should not use a magnifying glass while scanning the tenders and make every small mistake appear like a big blunder. In fact, the courts must give 'fair play in the joints' to the government and public sector undertakings in matters of contract. Courts must also not interfere where such interference will cause unnecessary loss to the public exchequer. 20. The essence of the law laid down in the judgments referred to above is the exercise of restraint and caution; the need for overwhelming public interest to justify judicial intervention in matters of contract involving the state instrumentalities; the courts should give way to the opinion of the experts unless the decision is totally arbitrary or unreasonable; the court does not sit like a court of appeal over the appropriate authority; the court must realise that the authority floating the tender is the best judge of its requirements and, therefore, the court's interference should be minimal. The authority which floats the contract or tender, and has authored the tender documents is the best judge as to how the documents have to be interpreted. If two interpretations are possible then the interpretation of the author must be accepted. The courts will only interfere to prevent arbitrariness, irrationality, bias, mala fides or perversity. With this approach in mind we shall deal with the present case. (Emphasis Supplied) 40. The reasons and the law laid down by the Hon'ble Supreme Court are binding. I hold that both the Writ Petitioners have embarked on a speculative journey to deliberately frustrate further progress in the tender process. Both the Writ Petitions have to suffer an order of dismissal and accordingly they are dismissed. 41. It must also be stated that the learned counsel for the Writ petitioner in W.P.No.24412 of 2019, made the following endorsement in the Writ Petition on the last day when the writ petitions were reserved for orders: 'Petitioner may be permitted to withdraw with liberty' This Court expresses its deep displeasure over such an endorsement made by the learned counsel for the petitioner. It exhibits lack of professional ethics. It is very specifically ordered that no liberty of any kind is granted for the Writ Petitioner in W.P.No.24412 of 2019. 42. Both the Writ Petitions are dismissed. Each of the Writ Petitioners are directed to pay costs of Rs.5,00,000/- (Rupees Five Lakhs only) to the Chief Justice Relief Fund, High Court of Madras. Consequently, connected Writ Miscellaneous Petitions are closed.
