This is how it works, as soon as the minister gets nominated for the district. If in a Municipal corporation or rural area people like Cooperator / MPTC / ZPTC, these guys throw a party and invite the Minister for get together a small crowed of 15 to 20 people who are contractors eligible to take up the work from say 5-50 Crores. These so called contractors will be behind the cooperator / MPTC and makes an one on one meeting with the minister and make sure the commission is delivered before the contractor is awarded. Many a time 90 % of the contracts never get to the guys who paid the commission. Once the guy comes to know that the said contract was awarded to someone, he convince that he will get a big one pretty soon and they make him roam around him.
If bigger then these Value of contract is more than Rs. 1000 crores his way is different. Majority of the time they approach the party president and makes a deal and it works most of the time. No mediator when a guy like GMR or Reliance they don't need to identify themselves. Most of the time guys will not be eligible for these huge contracts either due to that particular experience or financial turnover, they tie up with a foreign company and use their balance sheet or experience and the commission will be deposited in the foreign banks. more
