On July 12, 2009 a flyover that was being built in South Delhi collapsed killing six people. The contractor, Gammon India, was held responsible for the accident, and was banned from undertaking metro rail construction for two years.

On December 24, 2009 a bridge that was being built in Kota, Rajasthan collapsed killing 28 people. Rescuers continue to search for about 50 workers who are missing since the accident. The contractor? Gammon India, who also happens to be one of the contractors for the Punatsangchhu-I Hydroelectric Project Authority.

Gammon India won the contract to build the Head Race Tunnel for Punatsangchu-I. But, given their recent record, the Government would be well advised to reconsider their contract with them.
