materially increased the magnitude of the work, then such extension of the contracted
date of completion may be granted as shall appear to the Engineer to be reasonable in the
circumstances, provided moreover that the Contractor shall be responsible for requesting
such extension of the date as may be considered necessary as soon as the cause thereof
shall arise and in any case not less than one month before the expiry of the date fixed for
completion of the works.
iii. If in the opinion of the Engineer, the progress of work has at any time been delayed by
any act or neglect of Railway’s employees or by other contractor employed by the
Railway under sub-clause (4) of clause 20 of General Conditions or in executing the work
not forming part of the contract but on which contractor’s performance necessarily
depends or by reason of proceeding taken or threatened by or dispute with adjoining or to
neighbouring owners or public authority arising otherwise through the contractor’s own
default etc. or by the delay authorised by the Engineer pending arbitration or in
consequences of the contractor not having received in due time necessary instructions
from the Railway for which he shall have specially applied in writing to the Engineer or
his authorised representative then upon happening of any such event causing delay, the
contractor shall immediately give notice thereof in writing to the Engineer within 15 days
of such happening but shall nevertheless make constantly his best endeavours to bring
down or make good the delay and shall do all that may be reasonably required of him to
the satisfaction of the Engineer to proceed with the works. The contractor may also
indicate the period for which the work is likely to be delayed and shall be bound to ask
for necessary extension of time. The Engineer on receipt of such request from the
contractor shall consider the same and shall grant such extension of time as in his opinion
is reasonable having regard to the nature and period of delay and the type and quantum of
work affected thereby. No other compensation shall be payable for works so carried
forward to the extended period of time, the same rates, terms and conditions of contract
being applicable as if such extended period of time was originally provided in the original
contract itself.
iv. In the event of any failure or delay by the Railway to hand over the Contractor possession
of the lands necessary for the execution of the works or to give the necessary notice to
commence the works or to provide the necessary drawings or instructions or any other
delay caused by the Railway due to any other cause whatsoever, then such failure or
delay shall in no way affect or vitiate the contract or alter the contractor thereof or entitle
the contractor to damages or compensation thereof but in any such case, the Railway may
grant such extension or extensions of the completion date as may be considered
reasonable.
Extension of time for delay due to contractor:17-B. The time for the execution of the work or part of the works specified in the contract
documents shall be deemed to be the essence of the contract and the works must be Central
Railway completed not later than the date(s) as specified in the contract. If the contractor
fails to complete the works within the time as specified in the contract for the reasons other

DRM (C) NGP
than the reasons specified in clause 17 and 17-A, the Railway may, if satisfied that the
works can be completed by the contractor within reasonable short time thereafter, allow the
contractor for further extension of time as the Engineer may decide. On such extension the
Railway will be entitled without prejudice to any other right and remedy available on that
behalf, to recover from the contractor as agreed damages and not by way of penalty a sum
equivalent to 1/2 of 1% of the contract value of the works for each week or part of the
week subject to maximum 10% of the contract value.
For the purpose of this clause, the contract value of the works shall be taken as value of
work as per contract agreement including any supplementary work order/contract
agreement issued. Provided also, that the total amount of liquidated damages under this
condition, shall not exceed the undernoted percentage value or of the total value of the item
or groups of items of work for which a separate distinct completion period is specified in
the contract.
Provided further, that if the Railway is not satisfied that the works can be completed by the
Contractor and in the event of failure on the part of the contractor to complete the work
within further extension of time allowed as aforesaid, the Railway shall be entitled without
prejudice to any other right or remedy available in that behalf, to appropriate the
contractor’s security deposit and rescind the contract under clause 62 of General
Conditions, whether or not actual damage is caused by such default.

resulting from such decision and the Railway shall be entitled to deduct the amounts so
payable from any money due to the Contractor(s) under this contract or any other contracts
with the Railway.
(2) The Contractor shall not lend or borrow from or have or enter into any Monetary
dealings or transactions either directly or indirectly with any employee of the Railway and
if he shall do so, the Railway shall be entitled forthwith to rescind the contract and all other
contracts with the Railway. Any question or dispute as to the commission or any such
offence or compensation payable to the Railway under this clause shall be settled by the
General Manager of the Railway, in such a manner as he shall consider fit and sufficient
and his decision shall be final and conclusive. In the event of rescission of the contract
under this clause, the Contractor will not be paid any compensation whatsoever except

Contractors work depends for proper execution or result upon the work of another
contractor(s), the Contractor shall inspect and promptly report to the Engineer any defects
in such works that render it unsuitable for such proper execution and results. The
Contractor’s failure so-to inspect and report shall constitute an acceptance of the other

Engineer’s representative to Contractor in connection with the works shall bind the
contractor as through it had been given by the Engineer provided always as follows:

necessary for the proper completion of the works within the time prescribed, the Contractor
shall forthwith on receiving intimation to this effect take on the additional number of staff
and labour specified by the Engineer within seven days of being so required and failure on
