Hello Legal Experts.,
I am running a Proprietorship Firm since 2007. I have Shop and Establishment Certificate from Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation.
I recently participated in and tender. I met all criteria. I was L1 (least bidder). I had submitted my Shop and Establishment Certificate.
The buyer rejected me on the grounds of: "As per ATC the party has not attached Certificate of Incorporation Under Companies Act 1956"
Can a government body reject a Sole Proprietorship Firm. Which also is a MSME. And as per government policy preference has to given to MSME.
PFA tender document. Highlighted Tender Document and Rejection document.
