It was also of the adverse records with the Gewog Administration of the commercial contractors for the Past Fiscal year 2012-2013 of whom some contractors failed to complete the work on given time period despite their undertakings and some not being able to complete its rectifications and some although having completed it lacked a quality.
The audit officials at the time of the auditing done at the Gewog were very much happy seeing the quality and also with the co-operation amongst the community residents for these infrastructures and it was no wonder for others also.
