Web Desk: Salman Khan’s NGO Being Human has been blacklisted by BMC because it has failed to set up concessional dialysis units over a year after it was assigned the project. Civil body has also issued show cause notice which has also forfeited Being Human’s deposit.
In 2016, BMC had decided to begin 12 Dialysis centers which would be equipped to perform 10,000 procedures each month. Being Human Foundation was supposed to set up 24 dialysis machines at a facility in Pali Hill.
An official said, “Being Human, which was shortlisted for running the dialysis center 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.”
While Human Being’s representative said, “The Being Human Foundation has certain mandatory requirements which need to be included in contracts. There were discussions around those which ultimately did not materialize. There was no formal contract/MoU signed at all.”
