Actor Salman Khan’s Being Human Foundation faces blacklisting by the BMC for not setting up concessional dialysis units in Bandra over a year after being allotted the project. For this, BMC has send a show cause notice to the company.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, BMC had decided to start 12 dialysis centres, housing 199 dialysis machines which could perform up to 10,000 procedures a month, in the city in December 2016.
While, Being Human failed to keep up with its commitment and a show-cause notice of blacklisting the NGO was sent.
A senior officer from BMC was quoted saying, “Being Human, which was shortlisted for running the dialysis centre at Bandra (West), had paid the bank guarantee and was granted all the necessary permissions to go ahead with the project. But with the project not taking off, we have issued them a show-cause notice warning that they would be blacklisted.”
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the foundation said they had not signed a formal contract with the BMC. “The Being Human Foundation has certain mandatory requirements which need to be included in contracts. There were discussions around those which ultimately did not materialise. There was no formal contract/MoU signed at all,” Loretta Lewis, a representative from the foundation, said in an email statement.
