                            NIT No.:     TDM/SNDG/T-92/Tender-OFC/SNDG/03 Dtd 18/01/2010.
(III)   SPECIFICATION OF WORK:
        OPTICAL FIBRE CABLE CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES:

1.1     The guidelines in the form of Engineering Instructions (E.I.s) on Construction
        Practices of Optical Fiber Cables are issued by T & D wing of the Department, from
        time to time. However, the present practices are summarized here under, from the
        point of view of describing scope of work under various items of work. The
        document will need revision as and when practices undergo any revision.

1.2     On the basis of survey, general permission from road and all concerned authorities
        for laying the Optical fiber Cable along the decided routes and permission for
        rail/road crossings will have to be obtained. Generally, O.F.C. is laid straight as far
        as possible along the road near the boundaries, away from the burrow pits. The
        O.F.C. is laid along the roads at minimum distance of 15 meters from the centerline
        of the road or in accordance with the permission from the concerned road
        authorities in view of their road-widening plan. As the O.F.C. is laid after obtaining
        due permission from all the concerned authorities to avoid any change/shifting at a
        later stage and also disruption of services/revenue loss.

1.3     In special cases, where it may be necessary to avoid burrow pits or low lying areas,
        the cable may be run underneath the shoulders at a distance of 0.6 meter from the
        outer edge of the road embankment provided the same is located at least 4.5 meters
        away from center line of road and 1.2 meters below the road surface.

2.      DEPTH AND SIZE OF THE TRENCH:

2.1     Depth and size of trench mentioned in this clause are Standardized measurement
        and applicable to normal site condition where surface is generally uniform. Site
        Engineer shall be the authority to decide the depth of trench.

2.2     The depth of the trench from top of the surface shall not be less than 165 cms
        unless otherwise permitted. The width of the trench shall be sufficient to lay
        requisite number of HDPE/ GI/ RCC/DWC Pipes and also concreting wherever
        required.

2.3     When trenches are excavated in slopes, uneven ground, inclined portion, the lower
        edge shall be treated as top surface of land and depth of trench measured
        accordingly.

2.4     In a certain locations, such as uneven ground, hilly areas and all other places due to
        any reason whatsoever it can be ordered to excavate beyond standard depth of 165
        cms. to keep the bed of the trench as smooth as possible. Near the culverts, both
        ends of the culverts shall be excavated more than 165 cms. in depth to keep the
        gradient less than 15 degrees with horizontal.

2.5     If excavation is not possible to the minimum depth of 165 cms, as detailed in sub
        clauses above, full fact shall be brought to the notice of the Engineer-in-charge in
        writing giving details of location & reason for not able to excavate that particular
        portion. Approval may be granted by Divisional Engineer in writing under certain
        genuine circumstances only. The decision of Divisional Engineer shall be final and
        binding on contractor.

3       TRENCHING:

3.1     Trenching shall as far as possible be kept ahead of laying of pipes. Contractor shall
        exercise due care that soil from trenching intended to be loose for back filling is not
        mixed with loose debris. While trenching, Contractor should not cause damage to
        any underground installations belonging to others agencies and any damage caused
        should be made good at his own cost and expense.

                                        Page 49 of 82   Signature of the bidder with stamp
                                     Sindhudurg SSA: Tender for OFC Route Construction
                          NIT No.:     TDM/SNDG/T-92/Tender-OFC/SNDG/03 Dtd 18/01/2010.

3.2   The Contractor should provide sufficient width in the trench at all such places,
      where it is likely to cave in due to soil conditions without any extra payment.

3.3   A minimum free clearance of 15 cm. should be maintained above or below any
      existing underground installations. No extra payment will be made towards this.

3.4   In order to prevent damage to HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed rope over
      a period of time, due to the growth of trees, roots, bushes, etc., the contractor shall
      cut them if encountered in the path of alignment of trench without any additional
      charges.

3.5   In large borrow pits, excavation shall be done not less than 165 cms. in depth and
      both sides of borrow pit shall be excavated more than 165 cms in depth to keep
      gradient of bed less than 15 degree with horizontal.

3.6   If not possible as stated in sub clause above, alignment of trench shall be changed
      to avoid borrow pit completely.

4.    TRENCHING NEAR CULVERTS/BRIDGES AND CAUSEWAYS

4.1   The HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes shall be laid below the bed at
      the depth not less than 165 cms. protected by G.I. Pipes and bricks or concrete
      chamber as decided by TDM Sindhudurg.

4.2   Both ends of culverts shall be excavated more than 165cms. in depth to keep the
      gradient not less than 15 degree with horizon. The bed of trench should be as
      smooth as possible.

5.    LOCATION AND AUGMENTATION OF THE TRENCH:

5.1   In city areas the trench will normally follow the foot path of the road except where it
      may have to come to the edge of the carriage way when cutting across road with
      specific permissions from the authorities responsible for maintenance of that road
      (such permissions will be obtained by the BSNL). Outside the City limits trench will
      normally follow the boundary of the roadside land. However, where the road side
      land is full of borrow pits or forestation or when the cable has to cross culverts,
      bridges or streams, the trench may be closer to the road edge or in some cases, over
      the embankment or shoulder of the road (Permissions for such deviations for cutting
      the embankment as well as shoulder of the road will be obtained by the BSNL).

5.2   The alignment of the trench will be decided by a responsible BSNL officer, not below
      the rank of a Junior Telecom Officer. While marking the alignment only the
      centerline will be marked, and the Contractor shall set out all other work to ensure
      that, the excavated trench is as straight as possible. Contractor shall remove all
      bushes, undergrowth, stumps, rocks and other obstacles to facilitate marking the
      centerline without any extra charges.

6.    DEWATERING: The Contractor shall be responsible for all necessary arrangements
      to remove or pump out water from trench. The Contractor should survey the soil
      condition encountering the section and make his own assessment about dewatering
      arrangements that may be necessary. No extra payment shall be admissible for this
      and the tendered rate may take care of this aspect.

7.    METHOD OF EXCAVATION:

7.1   In city limits as well as in built up area, the Contractor shall resort to use of manual
      labour only to ensure no damage is caused to any underground or surface
      installations belonging to other public utility services and / or private parties.

                                      Page 50 of 82   Signature of the bidder with stamp

                          NIT No.:     TDM/SNDG/T-92/Tender-OFC/SNDG/03 Dtd 18/01/2010.

7.2   However, along the High ways and cross country there shall be no objection to the
      Contractor resorting to mechanical means of excavation, provided that no
      underground installation existing in the path of excavation if any, are damaged.

7.3   There shall be no objection to resort to horizontal boring to bore a hole of required
      size and HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed rope pushed through it at road
      crossing or rail crossing or small hillocks etc.

8.    LINE-UP: The line up of the trench must be such that HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing
      Type/Pre-installed rope(s) shall be laid in a straight line except at locations where it
      has to necessarily take a bend because of change in the alignment or gradient of the
      trench, subject to the restrictions mentioned elsewhere.

9.    LAYING OF H.D.P.E. PIPES/PLB HDPE PIPE:

9.1   After trench is excavated to the specified depth the bottom of the trench has to be
      cleared of all stones or pieces of rock & leveled up properly. A layer of ordinary soil
      of not less than 5 cm. is to be used for leveling the trench to ensure that cable when
      laid will follow a straight alignment

9.2   When trenches are excavated up to specified depth, properly dressed and leveled,
      joint measurement of trench shall be taken by representative of Contractor and Site
      Engineer.    Measurement shall be recorded in measurement book with their
      signature. Trenches for which measurements are recorded in measurement book
      shall be considered as approved trenches.

9.3   HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes/RCC/GI pipes shall be laid only
      in approved trenches. The contractor shall exercise due care to ensure that the
      HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed rope is not subjected to any damage or
      strain.

9.4   The HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes shall be laid in 150/100 mm
      dia RCC spun pipes (or DWC Pipes), at road crossings and through G.I. Pipes on
      culverts and bridges and also in exceptional cases where the depth of the trench is
      less than 165 cms. as specified by the concerned Engineer-In-Charge.

9.5   Water present in the trench at the time of laying the HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing
      Type/Pre-installed ropes shall be pumped out by the contractor before lowering in
      the pipes to ensure that no mud or water gets into the pipes.

9.6   At road crossings, two or more extra HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed
      ropes shall be laid as per direction of Site Engineer.

9.7   The HDPE Pipe shall be joined by coupler/socket at both ends; Nylon or P.P. rope
      shall be drawn though HDPE Pipe properly at time of laying pipes.

9.8   In cross country routes, where depth of trench is less than 1.20m, HDPE Pipe/PLB
      Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes should be laid within GI/RCC/DWC Pipes.
      Alternatively, HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes may be encased in
      reinforced concrete casing of dimensions 275mm x 275mm. In built up areas, where
      the depth of trench is not less than 165 cms, HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-
      installed ropes should be laid within GI/RCC/DWC Pipes. In case of trench depth
      being less than 165 cms, the HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes may
      be encased in reinforced concrete casing of dimensions 275 mm x 275 mm with the
      permission of DE (Trans).

9.9   In case of nallahs, which are dry for nine months in a year, the HDPE Pipe/PLB
      Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes shall be laid within the RCC/DWC Pipe laid at a

                                      Page 51 of 82   Signature of the bidder with stamp

         minimum depth of 165 cms. The RCC/DWC Pipes shall be extended 2 mtrs. Beyond
         the bed of nallah on either side.

9.10     Notwithstanding anything contained in clauses k (I) to (v) and 10(a), the site
         Engineer may admit in any specific case that the HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-
         installed ropes may be encased in reinforced concrete casing only.

9.11 The following construction practices are applicable in general:
9.11.1 Wherever GI pipes are used, rubber bushes shall be used at the two ends of the GI
       pipes to protect the damages of HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes.

9.11.2    Wherever RCC/DWC Pipes are used, two ends must be properly sealed to bar
          entry of rodents.

9.11.3    On road crossings, the HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes shall be
          laid at depth 165 cms, encased with RCC (DWC) pipe. The RCC (DWC) pipes shall
          be extended 3 meters on either side of the road.

9.11.4    On Rail bridges and crossings, the HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed
          ropes shall be encased in suitable cast iron/RC pipes as prescribed by the Railway
          Authorities.

9.11.5    Unloading of PLB HDPE Coil from truck should be done with help of Wooden /
          Metallic planks and coil can also be dropped from floor of truck on sand or soft
          soil bed.

9.12     For PLB Pipes blowing practice to lay the pipe, place jack stand along the side of
         trench and mount the coil with the help of strong iron shaft passing through the
         collapsible reel. Drive the reel slowly to avoid over spinning of reel while pulling,
         unrolled pipe can be laid to the trench by placing worker after every 15-20 meter.
         The arrangement for horizontal Jack and associated other accessories should be
         arranged by contractor at his cost.

9.13     Normally RCC/DWC pipes, Weld Mesh, RCC Route Indicators and RCC splice
         chambers will be provided by BSNL; in case BSNL does not provide them, then these
         materials should be provided by the contractor with the permission of DE (Trans).


10.      BACK FILLING AND DRESSING THE TRENCH:

10.1     Provided that the HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes have been
         properly laid in the trench at the specified depth, the back filling operation shall
         follow as closely as practicable. The back filling operation shall be performed in such
         a manner as to provide firm support under & above the pipes and avoid bend or
         deformation of the HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes when the
         HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes get loaded with the back filled
         earth. In locations where the back filling is not done properly by the contractor or
         done unevenly it shall be redressed and back filled properly by the BSNL at
         Contractor‟s expense. No debris shall be allowed in the back fill at any time.

10.2     At locations where the back filled material contains hard clods, rock fragments and
         other materials which may cause injury to HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-
         installed rope & where excavated or rock fragment are intended to refill the trench in
         whole or in part, the trench should be initially filled, with a layer of ordinary soil or
         de-rocked loose earth of not less than 10 cms. above pipes, without any extra cost.

10.3     Back filling on public, private roads, railway crossings, and foot paths in city areas
         shall be performed immediately after laying the HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-
         installed ropes. Back filling at such locations shall be thoroughly rammed, so as to

                                          Page 52 of 82   Signature of the bidder with stamp

                           NIT No.:     TDM/SNDG/T-92/Tender-OFC/SNDG/03 Dtd 18/01/2010.
       ensure original condition & made safe to traffic. All excess soil/ material left out on
       road/footpath/railway crossing shall be removed without any extra cost. However,
       along the high ways and cross country, the dug up material left out should be kept
       as heap above the trench while refilling.

10.4   In city limits, no part of the trench should be kept open for more than 50 meters
       length at any time and in all places where excavation has been done, no part of the
       trench should be kept open over-night to prevent any mishap or accident in
       darkness.

10.5   CONSTRUCTION OF RETAINING WALL: Random rubble masonry with hard stone
       in foundation and plinth including leveling up with cement concrete 1:6:12 (1
       cement, 6 Coarse Sand, 12 Graded stone aggregate 20 mm nominal size) at plinth
       level with cement mortar 1:6 (1 cement, 6 coarse sand).

11     LAYING PROTECTION PIPES ON BRIDGES AND CULVERTS

11.1   The work involves laying of HDPE pipes /PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes
       through GI Pipes of not more than 4" dia or GI Troughs of size 4" x 4" laid on the
       Bridges/Culverts.

11.2   In bridges/Culverts, where proper ducts are already provided, the HDPE Pipe/PLB
       Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes will be laid through the ducts.

11.3   Normally in the Bridges/Culverts, where there are no ducts and where the cushion
       on the top of the Arch is 0.5m or more thick the G.I. Pipe/ G.I. Trough carrying
       HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed rope & Cable may be burred on the top
       of the Arch adjourning the parapet wall, by digging close to the wheel guards.

11.4   Where the thickness of the Arch is less than 0.5m, the pipes must be buried under
       the wheel guard masonry and the wheel guard rebuilt.

11.5   If any of the above methods is not possible, the G.I. Pipe/G.I. Troughs must be
       clamped outside the parapet wall with the clamps supplied by the BSNL. If
       necessary, the pipes may be taken through the parapet wall at the ends where the
       wall diverges away from the road.

11.6   In cases where the methods explained in clause c & d above are not possible, the
       G.I. Pipes/G.I. Troughs can be fixed on the top of the road kerb close to the inside
       face of the parapet wall by means of clamps, supplied, using raw plugs & wood
       screws or small diameter bolts, without damaging concrete & limiting external
       diameter of the bolts to 7.5 mm. The permission for carrying out this work will be
       obtained from the Road Authorities by the BSNL.

11.7   Methods cited in clauses above should be carried out under close supervision of the
       Road authorities and restoration of any damages to the structures in any of the
       methods adopted should be done to the entire satisfaction of the road authorities.
11.8   When HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes are laid on bridges/culverts
       as per clause c to f above, except when pipes are clamped outside of the bridge,
       cement concreting shall be provided over the protection pipes/troughs.

12.    CONCRETING:

12.1   The nominal (standard) dimension of concreting is of 275 mm x 275 mm. section.
       However depending on the actual situation, this cross section may be varied to
       ensure uniformity with any existing structure / base, on which the GI pipes/ GI
       troughs are placed, as demanded by the road authorities. The work should be

14.    JOINT CHAMBER

       The joint chamber is provided at every joint (normally at a distance of 2 Kms or at
       the distances wherever required) to keep the O.F.C. joint well protected and also to
       keep extra length of cable which may be required in the event of faults on a later
       date. The joint chambers are made at site using bricks and mortar or are of pre-cast
       RCC type.

14.1   Construction of brick chamber at site: For constructing brick chamber, first a pit
       of size 2m x 2m x 1.8m depth is required to be deug. Then, base of the chamber is

       aggregate 40mm nominal size) of size of 1.7 m x 1.7 m x 0.15 m (thickness). Walls
       of brick chamber having internal dimensions of 1.2 m x 1.2 m x 1 m (H) should be
       constructed on this base having wall thickness of 9” using cement mortar mix of 1:5
       (1: cement, 5: fine sand). The bricks to be used for this purpose should be of size
       9”x4.5”x3”, best quality available and should have smooth rectangular shape with
       sharp corners and shall be uniform in colour and emit clear ringing should when
       struck. The joint chamber should be so constructed that HDPE pipe/PLB Blowing
       Type/Pre-installed ropes ends remain protruding minimum 5 cms inside the
       chamber on completion of plastering. The HDPE pipes should be embedded in wall
       in such a way so that, the bottom brick should support the pipe and upper brick
       should be provided in a manner that HDPE pipe remains free from the weight of the
       construction. The joint chamber should be plastered on all internal surfaces and
       top edges with cement mortar of 1:3 (1: cement, 3: coarse sand), 12mm thick
       finished with a floating coat of complete cement as per standard. Pre-cast RCC slab

       cm having one handle for each half in center and word „OFC‟ engraved on it are to
       be used to cover the joint chamber. Two numbers of such slabs are required for one
       joint chamber. This pre-cast slab should be made of cement concrete mix of 1:2:4
       (1: cement, 2: coarse sand, 4: stone aggregate 6mm nominal size) reinforced with
       steel wire fabric 75 x 25 mm mesh of weight not less than 7.75 Kg per sq. meter.
       The joint chamber is filled with clean sand before closing. Lastly, back filling of joint
       chamber pit with excavated soil is carried out.

       for lifting for top cover.
       Specification of cover : 30 mm thick with suitable reinforcement by iron bars to
       provide sufficient strength with diameter of 1.1 meter.
       The word „BSNL OFC‟ engraved on it..
       After, fixing the pre cast RCC joint chamber, the joint chamber is filled with clean
       sand before closing. Lastly, back filling of joint chamber pit with excavated soil is
       carried out.

15.    ROUTE/JOINT INDICATOR

       The route/ joint indicators are co-located with each manhole/joint chamber. In
       addition route indicators are also to be placed where route changes direction like
       road crossings etc. The route/joint indicators made of pre cast RCC should have
       the following dimensions:

       Height-      750 mm;
       Upper Width- 200 mm;
       Bottom Width-250 mm;
       Thickness-         100 mm.

              The word „BSNL OFC‟ should be engraved on the route/joint indicators.

       The route indicators are painted yellow and the same are placed at 2 ft. away from
       the center of the trench towards jungle side. The joint indicators are placed at OFC
       joints and placed 1 ft. away from wall of the joint chamber facing jungle side and are
       painted red. The engraved word „BSNL OFC‟ should be painted in white, on route
       as well as joint indicators. Numbering of route indicators/joint indicators should
       also be done in white paint. The numbering scheme for route indicators will be joint
       No./Route Indicator No. for that joint. For example, 2/6 marking on a route
       indicator means 6th route indicator after 2nd joint. Additional joints on account of
       faults at a later date should be given number of preceding joint with suffix A, B, C,
       D. For example sign writing 2A on a joint indicator means, additional joint between
       joint No.2 and 3. The numbering of existing route/joint indicator should not be
       disturbed on account of additional joints.

       Enamel paints of reputed brands should be used for painting and sign writing of
       route as well joint indicators.

16.    WETTING: Wherever the soil is hard due to dry weather conditions, if watering is to
       be done for wetting the soil to make it loose, the same shall be done by the
       contractor. No extra payment shall be admissible for this.

17.    BLASTING: For excavation in hard rock, where blasting operations are considered
       necessary, the contractor shall obtain approval of the Engineer-In-Charge in writing
       for resorting to blasting operation.

       The contractor shall obtain license from the competent authority for undertaking
       blasting work as well as for obtaining and storing the explosive as per the Explosive

       Act, 1884 as amended up to date and the explosive Rules, 1983. The contractor
       shall purchase the explosives fuses, detonators, etc. only from a licensed dealer.
       Transportation and storage of explosive at site shall conform to the aforesaid
       Explosive Act and Explosive Rules. The contractor shall be responsible for the safe
       custody and proper accounting of the explosive materials. Fuses and detonators
       shall be stored separately and away from the explosives. The Engineer-in-Charge or
       his authorized representative shall have the right to check the contractor‟s store and
       account of explosives. The contractor shall provide necessary facilities for this.

       The contractor shall be responsible for any damage arising out of accident to
       workmen, public or property due to storage, transportation and use of explosive
       during blasting operation.

       Blasting operations shall be carried out under the supervision of a responsible
       authorised agent of the contractor (referred subsequently as agent only), during
       specified hours as approved in writing by the Engineer-in-Charge. The agent shall
       be conversant with the rules of blasting.

       All procedures and safety precautions for the use of explosives drilling and loading
       of explosives before and after shot firing and disposal of explosives shall be taken by
       the contractor as detailed in IS: 4081 safety code for blasting and related drilling
       operation.

18.    CABLE PULLING AND JOINTING/SPLICING:

18.1   CABLE PULLING: Manholes marked during HDPE pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-
       installed ropes laying of approx. size of 3m length x 1.0m width x 1.65m depth shall
       be excavated for pulling the cables. There may be situations where additional
       manholes are required to be excavated for some reasons, to facilitate smooth pulling
       of cable. Excavation of additional manholes will be carried out, without any extra
       cost. De-watering of the manholes, if required, will be carried out without any extra
       cost. De-watering/De-gasification of the ducts, if required, will be carried out
       without any extra cost. The existing 6mm PP rope shall be replaced by with PP rope
       of 8mm dia between the two consecutive manholes. This is to ensure that the HDPE
       pipes/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes are cleaned for pulling the cable
       without exerting undue tension on the OF cable. While cleaning, excessive pressure
       should not be put this may result in breaking of P.P. rope and thus required opening
       of additional manholes. However, in case the cleaning rope gets stuck up during
       pulling, the location of clogging of HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes
       should be measured and located accurately. The trench at that location should be
       opened and the HDPE Pipe /PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes should be
       cleaned properly or if not possible it should be changed by a clean new HDPE Pipe
       /PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes to facilitate easy cable pulling at a later stage
       without any breakage. If clogging of HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed
       ropes is in the location where the pipes are protected either by RCC (DWC) Pipe
       /PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes or by concreting and the protection is broken
       for cleaning/changing the HDPE Pipe, the protection thus removed should be
       brought back to normal by the contractor without any extra cost. However, HDPE
       Pipes/PLB Blowing Type/Pre-installed ropes, RCC (DWC) Pipes required for this
       purpose will be supplied by the BSNL.

18.2   Jointing/Splicing: The OFC cable drums are usually of 2 Kms in length hence
       optical fiber joints will be approx. at every 2 Kms. The 6/12/24 fibers are to be
       spliced at every 2 Kms. and at both ends (Terminations) in the equipment room as
       directed by the Engineer-in-charge. The Infrastructure required for cable splicing
       i.e.

       *      Splicing machine
       *      Air Conditioned Van

      *      OTDR
      *      Optical talk set
      *      Tool kit etc.

      will be arranged by the bidder at his own cost and also any additional accessories
      e.g. engine etc. required at site for splicing will also be arranged by the bidder at his
      own cost.

      The optical fiber cable thus jointed end-to-end will be tested by an officer of A/T unit
      for splice losses and transmission parameters as specified by TCHQ and prevalent at
      that time. The OF cable should meet all the parameters, specified and no relaxation
      will be granted. It should also be ensured that during jointing no fibers are
      interchanged or broken. The number of joints should not be more than 10% of the
      theoretical value calculated by the department.

      Note: The jointing/splicing of optical fiber cable is an optional item. The BSNL
      units, which are equipped for this works, preferably carry out this work by BSNL.

20.    SAFETY PRECAUTIONS:

20.1   Safety Precautions when excavating or working in excavations close to electric
       cables: The Engineer-in-Charge of the work should get full information from
       Electricity undertaking regarding any electric cables, which are known or suspected
       to exist near the proposed excavation and unless this is done, excavation should not
       be carried out in the section concerned. The electricity undertaking should be asked
       to send a representative and work should be proceeded with close consultation with
       them.

       Only wooden handled hand tools should be used until the electric cables have been
       completely exposed. Power Cables, not laid in conduits, are usually protected from
       above by a cover slab of concrete, brick or stone. They may or may not be protected
       on the sides. It is safer, therefore, always to drive the point of the pickaxe
       downwards then uncovering a cable, so that there is less chance of missing such
       warning slabs. No workman should be permitted to work alone where there are
       electric cables involved. At least one more man should be working nearby so that
       help can be given quickly in case of an accident. If disconnection of power could be
       arranged in that section it will be better. No electric cables shall be moved or altered
       without the consent of the Electric Authority and they should be contacted to do the
       needful. If an electric cable is damaged even slightly, it should be reported to the
       Electric Authority and any warning bricks disturbed during excavation should be
       replaced while back filling the trench. Before driving a spike into the ground, the
       presence of other underground properties should be checked. Information on plans
       regarding the location of power cables needs not to be assumed as wholly accurate.
       Full precautions should be taken in the vicinity until the power cable is uncovered.
       All electric cables should be regarded as being live and consequently dangerous.
       Any power is generally dangerous, even low voltage proving fatal in several cases.

20.2   Electric shock-Action and treatment: Free the victim from the contact as quickly
       as possible. He should be jerked away from the live conductors by dry timber, dry
       rope or dry clothing. Care should be taken not to touch with bare hands as his body
       may be energized while in contact. Artificial respiration should begin immediately to
       restore breathing even if life appears to be extinct. Every moment of delay is
       serious, so, in the meanwhile, a doctor should be called for.

20.3   Safety precautions while working in public street and along railway lines:
              Where a road or footpath is to be opened up in the course of work, special
       care should be taken to see that proper protection is provided to prevent any
       accidents from occurring. Excavation work should be done in such a manner that it
       will not unduly cause inconvenience to pedestrians or occupants of buildings or
       obstruct road traffic. Suitable bridges over open trenches should be so planned that
       these are required for the minimum possible time. Where bridges are constructed to
       accommodate vehicular traffic and is done near or on railway property, it should be
       with the full consent and knowledge of the competent railway authorities.

20.4   Danger from falling material: Care should be taken to see that apparatus, tools or
       other excavating implements or excavated materials are not left in a dangerous or
       insecure position so as to fall or be knocked into the trench thereby injuring any
       workman who may be working inside the trench.

20.5   Care when working in Excavations: Jumping into a trench is dangerous. If it is
       deep, workmen should be encouraged to lower themselves. Workers should work at

                                       Page 58 of 82   Signature of the bidder with stamp
                                      Sindhudurg SSA: Tender for OFC Route Construction
                           NIT No.:     TDM/SNDG/T-92/Tender-OFC/SNDG/03 Dtd 18/01/2010.
       safe distance so as to avoid striking each other accidentally with tools. If the walls
       of the trench contain glass bits, corroded wire or sharp objects they should be
       removed carefully.     If an obstruction is encountered, it should be carefully
       uncovered and protected if necessary. Care must be taken to see that excavated
       material is not left in such a position that it is likely to cause any accident or
       obstruction to a roadway or waterway. If possible the excavated material should be
       put between the workmen and the traffic without encroaching too much on the road.

20.6   Danger of cave in: When working in deep trenches in loose soil, timbering
       up/shoring the sides will prevent soil subsidence. The excavated material should be
       kept at sufficient distance from the edge of the trench or pit. Vehicles or heavy
       equipment must not be permitted to approach too close to the excavation. When
       making tunneled opening, it would be ensured that the soil is compact enough to
       prevent cave in even under adverse conditions of traffic. Extra care should be taken
       while excavating near the foundations of buildings or retaining walls. In such cases,
       excavation should be done gradually and as far as possible in the presence of the
       owners of the property.

20.7   Protection of Excavations: Excavations in populated areas, which are not likely to
       be filled up on the same day should be protected by barriers or other effective means
       of preventing accidents and the location of all such openings must in any event be
       indicated by red flags or other suitable warning signs. During the hours from dusk
       to dawn, adequate number of red warning lamps should be displayed. Supervisory
       officers should ensure that all excavations are adequately protected in this manner
       as serious risk and responsibility is involved. Notwithstanding adoption of the
       above-mentioned precautions, works involving excavations should be so arranged as
       to keep the extent of opened ground and the time to open it to a minimum.

20.8   Precautions while working on roads: The period between half an hour after sunset
       and half an hour before sunrise, and any period of fog or abnormal darkness may
       also be considered as night for the purpose of these instructions, for the purpose of
       providing the warning signs. Excavation liable to cause danger to vehicles or the
       public must at all times be protected with fencing of rope tied to strong uprights or
       bamboo poles at a suitable height or by some other effective means. Any such
       temporary erection which is likely to cause obstructions and which is not readily
       visible should be marked by posts carrying red flags or boards with a red
       background by day and by continuously lighted lamps at night.

       The flags and the lamps should be placed in conspicuous positions so as to indicate
       the pedestrians and drivers of vehicles the full expanse i.e. both width and length of
       the obstruction. The distance between lamps or between floors should not generally
       exceed 1.25m along the width and 6m along length of the obstruction in non-
       congested areas, but 4 meters along the length in congested areas. If the excavation
       is extensive, sufficient notice to give adequate warning of the danger should be
       displayed conspicuously not less than 1.25m above the ground and close to the
       excavation. Where any excavation is not clearly visible for a distance of 25m to
       traffic approaching from any direction or any part of the carriage way of the road in
       which the excavation exists, a warning notice should be placed on the kerb or edge
       of all such roads from which the excavation or as near the distance as is practicable
       but not less than 10m from the junction of an entering or intersecting road in which
       the excavation exists. All warnings, in these should have a red background and
       should be clearly visible and legible. All warning lamps should exhibit a red light,
       but white lights may be used in addition to facilitate working at night. Wherever
       required a passage for pedestrians with footbridge should be provided.             At
       excavations, cable drums, tools and all materials likely to offer obstructions should
       be properly folded round and protected. This applies to jointer‟s tents as well.
       Leads, hoses etc. stretched and across the carriageway should be guarded
       adequately for their own protection and also that of the public.

20.9   Traffic Control: The police authorities are normally responsible for the control of
       traffic and may require the setting up of traffic controls to reduce the inconvenience
       occasioned by establishment of a single line of traffic due to restriction in road width
       or any other form of obstruction caused by the work. As far as possible, such
       arrangements should be settled in advance. If there are any specific regulations
       imposed by the local authorities, these should be followed.

20.10 Work along Railway Lines: Normally all works at Railway crossing is to be done
      under supervision of the railway authorities concerned, but it is to be borne in mind
      that use of white, red or green flags by the BSNL staff is positively forbidden to be
      used when working along a railway line as this practice may cause an accident
      through ------- drivers mistaking them for railway signals. When working along a
      double line of railway, the men should be warned to keep a sharp look on both the
      “UP” and “DOWN” lines to avoid the possibility of any accident when trains pass or
      happen to cross one another near the work spot.

20.11 Procedure and Safety precautions for use of explosives during blasting for
      trenching: In areas where the cable trench cannot be done manually on account of
      boulders and rocks, it is necessary to blast the rocks by using suitable explosives.
      The quality of explosive to be used depends on the nature of the rocks and the kind
      of boulders. A few types of explosive fuses and detonators normally used for making
      trenches for cable works are detailed below:
      i)   Gun power
      ii) Nitrate Mixture
      iii) Gelatin
      iv) Safety fuse
      v) Electric Detonator
      vi) Ordinary Detonator

       Procedure: A detailed survey of the route is to be done to assess the length of the
       section where trenching is to be done with the help of blasting. A route diagram of
       the rocky section may be prepared indicating the length of the route where the
       explosives are to be used. For the purpose of obtaining license, a longer length of
       route should be given in the application as in many cases, after digging, rocks
       appear were blasting was not initially anticipated.
       Next a license will have to be obtained for use and storing of explosive in that
       section. If the area falls under a police commissioner, the authority for granting
       such license is the police commissioner of the concerned area. When the route does
       not fall in the jurisdiction of a police commissioner, the authority for issuing license
       is the District Magistrate.
       The concerned authority should be applied in prescribed form with a route map. The
       concerned authority will make an enquiry and issue a license for using / storing
       explosives for cables trenching work. Such license will be valid for 15 days only. The
       license should be got renewed if the blasting operation needs to be extended. Once
       the license is grated, it is the responsibility of the holders of the license for the
       proper use of explosives, its transportation and storing

       Method of using: The safest explosive is the gelatin and electric detonator. Gelatin
       is in the form of a stick. Electric detonator is a type of fuse used for firing the
       explosive electrically. Holes are made at suitable intervals on rocky terrain or
       boulders either by air compressor or by manual chipping. The depth of the holes
       should be 2 to 3 ft. Fill up the holes with small quantity of stand for about 6”. First
       the electric detonator is to be inserted into the gelatin and the gelatin is to be
       inserted into the holders keeping the + ve and –ve wirings of electric detonators
       outside the holes. Again refill the holes with sand. These + ve and –ve insulated
       wires or detonator are then extended and finally connected to an EXPLODER kept at
       a distance of not less than 100m.
       Now the explosive is ready for blasting. But, before connecting wires to exploder for
       blasting, all necessary precautions for stopping the traffic, use of red flags, exchange

                                       Page 60 of 82   Signature of the bidder with stamp

of caution signals, etc. should be completed and only then Exploder should be
connected and operated.

Operation of exploder (IDL shuffler type 350 type exploder): The type 350
blasting machine consists of a bearing block with blasting machine system and the
explosion proof light – alloy injection molded housing. The exploder is held with the
left hand. The twist handle is applied to the drive pin, clapped with the right hand
turned in the clockwise direction in continuous measurements at the highest speed
from the initial position until it reached to a stop. At this stage an indication lamp
will glow. When the indication lamp glows, “press button switch” should be pressed.
This will extend the electric current to detonator and gelatin will be detonated. The
rock will be blasted out of the trench. Number of holes can be blasted in a single
stroke by connecting all such detonators in series connection and finally to the
exploder. After blasting, again mazdoors are engaged on the work of clear the debris.
If the result of the first blasting is not satisfactory, it should be repeated again on
the same place.

Warning: There may be two reasons for unsatisfactory results of the blasting:
a) Misfire of gelatin due to leakage of current from detonator.
b) Over loading because of overburdens.
Never pull the broken wire pieces from the holes in such cases. Attempt should not
be made to re-blast the misfired gelatin. The safest way is to make a fresh hole by its
side and put fresh gelatin in that hole and blast it.

Precautions: The abstract of Explosives Rules 1983 which are relevant to our work
is given below:

Restriction of delivery and dispatch of explosives:
No person shall deliver or dispatch any explosives to any one other than a person
who.
a)      is the holder of a license to possess the explosives or against of a holder of
        which a license duly authorized by him in writing on his behalf.
OR
b)      is entitled under these rules to possess the explosives without a license.
The explosives so delivered or dispatched shall in no case exceed the quantity, which
the person to whom they are delivered or dispatched is authorized to possess with or
without a license under these rules.
No person shall receive explosives from any person other than the holder of a license
granted under these rules. No person shall receive from or transfer explosives to any
person for a temporary storage or safe custody in a licensed premise unless prior
approval is obtained from the Chief Controller.
A person holding license for possession of explosives granted under these rules shall
store the explosives only in premises specified in the license.
 Protection from Lightening During Storing: Every magazine shall have
    attached there to one or more efficient lightening conductors designed and
    erected in accordance with the specifications laid down in Indian Standard
    Specifications No.2309 as amended from time to time. The connections to
    various parts of earth resistance of the lightening conductor terminal on the
    building to the earth shall be tested at least once in every year by a qualified
    electrical engineer or any other competent person holding a certificate of
    competency in this behalf from the State Electricity Department. A certificate
    showing the results of such tests and the date of the last test shall be hung up
    in conspicuous place in the building.
 Precautions during thunder-storm: When a thunder – storm appears to be
    imminent in the vicinity of a magazine or store house every person engaged in or
    around such magazine and stores house shall be withdrawn to a safe distance
    from such magazine or store house and the magazine and store house shall be
    kept closed and locked until the thunder storm has ceased or the threat of it has
    passed.

Maintenance of records:
Every person holding a license granted under these rules for possession, sale or use
of explosives shall maintain records in the prescribed forms and shall produce such
record on demand to an Inspection Officer.
Explosives not to be kept in damaged boxes:
The licensee of every magazine or storehouse shall ensure that, the explosives are
always kept in their original outer package. In case, the outer package gets damaged
so that the explosive contained therein cannot be stored or transported, such
explosives shall be repacked only after the same are examined by controller of
explosives.
Storage of explosives in excess of the licensed quantity:
The quantity of any kind of explosives kept in any licensed magazine or storehouse
shall not exceed the quantity entered in the license against such kind of explosives.
No explosives in excess of the licensed quantity shall be stored in the magazine or
storehouse unless a permit in this behalf is obtained from the licensing authority by
a letter or telegram.
Precautions to be observed at Site:
The electric power at the blasting site shall be discontinued as far as practicable
before charging the explosives. No work other than that associated with the charging
operations shall be carried out within 10 meters of the holes unless otherwise
specified to the contrary by the licensing authority.
When charging is completed, the surplus explosive detonators and fuses shall be
removed from the vicinity of the hole and stored at a distance which should prevent
accidental detonation in the event of a charge detonating prematurely in any hole.
The holes, which have been charged with explosives, shall not be left unattended till
the blasting is completed. Care shall be taken to ensure that fuse or wires
connections to the detonation are not damaged during the placing of stemming
material and tamping.
Suitable warning procedure to be maintained:
The licensee or a person appointed by the licensee to be in charge of the use of
explosives at the site shall lay down a clear warning procedure consisting of warning
signs and suitable signals and all persons employed in the area shall be made fully
conversant with such signs and signals.
Precautions to be observed while firing:
The end of the safety fuse (if used in place of a detonator should be freshly cut
before being lighted. The exploders shall be regularly tested and maintained in a fit
condition for use in firing. An exploder shall not be used for firing a circuit above its
rated capacity. The electric circuits shall be tested for continuity before firing. All
persons other than the shot-firer and his assistant, if any, shall be withdrawn from
the site before testing the continuity.
For the purpose of jointing, the ends of all wires and cables should have the
insulation removed for a maximum length of 5 cms. and should, then be made clear
and bright for a minimum length of 2.5 cms. and the ends to be joined should be
twisted together so as to have a positive metal contact. Then these should be taped
with insulation to avoid leakage when in contact with earth.
In case of blasting with dynamite or any other high explosive, the position of all the
boreholes to be drilled shall be marked in circles with while paint. These shall be
inspected by the Contractor‟s agent. Bore holes shall be of a size that the cartridge
can easily pass down. After the drilling operation, the agent shall inspect the holes
to ensure that drilling has been done only at the marked locations and no extra hole
has been drilled. The agent shall then prepare the necessary charge separately for
each borehole. The boreholes shall be thoroughly cleaned before a cartridge is
inserted. Only cylindrical wooden tamping rods shall be used for tamping. Metal
rods or rods having pointed ends shall never be used for tamping. One cartridge
shall be placed in the borehole and gently pressed but not rammed down. Other
cartridges shall then be added as may be required to make up the necessary charge
for the borehole. The top most cartridge shall be connected to the detonator that
shall in turn be connected to the safety fuses of required length. All fuses shall be

cut to the length required before being inserted into the holes. Joints in fuses shall
be avoided. Where joints are unavoidable, a semi-circular niche shall be cut in one
piece inserted into the niche. The two pieces shall then be wrapped together with
string. All joints exposed to dampness shall be wrapped with rubber tape.
The maximum of eight boreholes shall be loaded and fired at once occasion. the
charges shall be fired successively and not simultaneously. Immediately before
firing, warning shall be given and the agent shall see that all persons have retired to
a place of safety. The safety fuses of the charged holes shall be ignited in the
presence of the agent, who shall see that all the fuses are properly ignited. Careful
count shall be kept by the agent and others of each blast as it explodes. In case all
the charged bore holes have exploded, the agent shall inspect the site soon after the
blast but in case of misfire the agent shall inspect the site after half an hour and
mark red crosses (X) over the holes which have not exploded. During his interval of
half an hour, nobody shall approach the misfired holes. No driller shall work near
such bore until either of the following operation have been done by the agent for the
misfired boreholes.

a)   The contractor‟s agent shall very carefully (when the tamping is damp clay)
     extract the tempting with a wooden scrapper and withdraw the primer and
     detonator.

b)   The holes shall be cleaned for 30 cm of tamping and its direction ascertained by
     placing a stick in the hole. Another hole shall then be drilled 15cm away and
     parallel to it. This hole shall be charged and fired. The misfired holes shall also
     explode along with the new one.

Before leaving the site of work, the agent of one shift shall inform the another agent
relieving him for the next shift, of any case of misfire and each such location shall be
jointly inspected and the action to be taken in the matter shall be explained to the
relieving agent.
The Engineer-in-Charge shall also be informed by the agent of all cases of misfire,
their causes and steps taken in that connection.

General Precautions: For the safety of persons red flags shall be prominently
displayed around the area where blasting operations are to be carried out. All the
workers at site, except those who actually ignite the fuse, shall withdraw to a safe
distance of at least 200 meters from the blasting site. Audio warning by blowing
whistle shall be given before igniting the fuse.
Blasting work shall be done under careful supervision and trained personnel shall
be employed. Blasting shall not be done within 200 meters of an existing structure,
unless specifically permitted by the Engineer-in-Charge in writing.

Precautions against misfire: The safety fuse shall be cut in an oblique direction
with a knife. All saw dust should be cleared from inside of the detonator. This can be
done by blowing down the detonator and tapping the open end. No tools shall be
inserted into the detonator for this purpose.
If there is water present or if the borehole is damp, the junction of the fuse and
detonator shall be made water tight by means of tough grease or any other suitable
materials. The detonator shall be inserted into the cartridge so that about one third
of the copper tube is left exposed outside the explosive. The safety fuse just above
the detonator shall be securely tied in position in the cartridge. Waterproof fuse only
shall be used in the damp borehole or when water is present in the borehole.
If a misfire has been found to be due to defective fuse, detonator or dynamite, the
entire consignment from which the fuse, detonator or dynamite was taken shall be
got inspected by the Engineer-in-Charge or his authorised representative before
resuming the blasting or returning the consignment.

       Precautions against stray currents: Where electrically operated equipments are
       used in locations having conductive ground or continuous metal objects, tests shall
       be made for stray current to ensure that electrical firing can proceed safely.

21.    STOPPAGE OF WORKS: BSNL will not be responsible for payment of
       compensation/damages etc. to the contractor, if the work is stopped in between due
       to non availability of stores/materials or for any other unavoidable reasons.

22.    CAUSING INCONVENIENCE TO THE PUBLIC:
       (a) To ensure progress during the execution of the work and to cause minimum
       inconvenience to the public, the contractor shall not dig a trench of more than
       200mtrs at a stretch in a route at a time. He shall cause to lay cable and close such
       trenches expeditiously. Under any circumstances a stretch of trench of maximum
       200mtrs shall not be kept open for more than 4 days in case of cable laying by
       digging paved surfaces.

       (b) The contractor shall not dump the empty cable drums / waste materials in
       Govt./ Public place, which may cause inconvenience to the Govt./public.
       (c) Temporary pavement should be provided by the contractor in busy locality at his
       own cost to avoid inconvenience to public. Warning boards / lamps should be
       provided wherever necessary.
23.    MEASUREMENT: The measurement books are to be maintained by the officer in-
       charge of the work or his immediate engineering subordinate not below the rank of
       Junior Telecom Officer. The entry shall be made in ink. No entry shall be erased. If a
       mistake is made, it should be corrected by crossing out the incorrect words or
       figures and inserting the corrections, the corrections thus made shall be initialed &
       dated by the officer concerned.

23.1   Responsibility of taking and recording measurements: The Contractor shall give
       not less than seven days notice in writing to the Engineer-in-charge or his
       subordinate in charge of the work before covering up or otherwise placing beyond
       reach of measurements any work in order that the same may be measured & correct
       dimensions thereof be taken before the same is so covered up or placed beyond the
       reach of measurement and shall not cover up & place beyond reach of
       measurement, any work without the consent in writing of the Engineer-in-charge or
       his subordinate in charge of the work. The Engineer-in-charge or his subordinate in
       charge of the work shall within aforesaid period of seven days inspect the work, and
       if any work shall be covered up or placed beyond the reach of measurement without
       such notice having been given or the Engineer-in-charge's consent being obtained,
       the same shall be uncovered at the Contractors expense, or in default thereof no
       payment or allowance shall be made for such work or the materials with which the
       same was executed.

23.2   The measurement of various items of work shall be taken and recorded in the
       measurement book issued with each work order. The measurement shall be taken
       and recorded by an officer not below the rank of Junior Telecom Officer, supervising
       the work. The Junior Telecom Officer/Sub Divisional Engineer, directly responsible
       for supervision of work, shall be responsible for accuracy of 100% of measurements.
       The Sub Divisional Engineer where Junior Telecom Officer is supervising officer
       shall be responsible for conducting test check of 50% of measurements. The
       Divisional Engineer shall be responsible for conducting test check of 10% of
       measurements.

23.3   If contractor executing without or away from marking and not following the
       instructions of site engineer such work shall not be recorded in the measurement
       book and no payment shall be made for such work.

23.4   The Junior Telecom Officer & Contractor/his authorized representative will certify
       under their signature the appropriate places in the measurement book that the

                                       Page 64 of 82   Signature of the bidder with stamp

       depth of trench & alignment is as per specification. After this certification, the pipe
       laying is to start. After HDPE Pipe laying is over the Junior Telecom officer has to
       again certify that the HDPE Pipe/PLB Blowing Type/pre-installed rope laying has
       been done according to specification. The trench will then be reinstated and final
       recording of completion of work in that portion is to be certified under the joint
       signatures of the Junior Telecom officer and the Contractor or his authorized
       representative. (Contractor has to communicate in writing to the Divisional Engineer
       the name and other details of the supervisor authorized by him if Contractor himself
       is not signing the measurement book.) However, the Contractor will have to
       countersign the measurement and recordings relating to the period for which he
       prefers the bill.

23.5   Method of recording of nomenclature of items: Complete nomenclature of items,
       as given in the agreement need not be reproduced in the measurement book for
       recording the measurements but corresponding Item Code as provided, shall be
       used.

23.6   Method of measurements: The measurement of the work shall be done for activity
       wise as and when the item of work is ready for measurement. The methods of
       measurements of various items are enumerated as under:

23.7   Measurement of depth of trenches:

(a)    The cable routes of one work order shall be divided into a number of segments each
       of maximum 200 meters length bounded by identifiable landmarks at both the ends
       of the segments. If landmarks are not available, length of segment may be
       maintained at 200 meters. The measurement of depth shall be recorded at each
       point of measurement (POM) in the measurement book in meters in the multiples of
       5 cms. For example 97 cms will recorded as 95 cms And 103 cms as 105 cms. The
       points of measurements shall be at a distance of 10 meters starting from 0 (Zero)
       Meter, For example, if the length of segment is 75 meters, the POM shall be at 0 M.
       10 M, 20 M, 30 M, 40 M, 50 M, 60 M, 70 M. The last POM shall be at 75th M to be
       recorded against Residual POM.

(b)    Payment shall be made to contractor for a full section 200 meters only i.e. if
       HDPE/GI/RCC/DWC Pipes laying, rope pulling, refilling of trench and fixing and
       concreting of Route Indicators is complete in all respect. Incomplete or unfinished
       sections will be recorded in MB, but payment shall be released only when section is
       certified to be complete in all respect by the site in charge.

(c)    If water drain or road gutter encountered along the road the depth shall be
       measured from the top surface of the water drain or road gutter. However, payment
       will not be made for the un-dug portion in the water drain or road gutter.

(d)    The efforts required to excavate trenches is not proportionate especially with
       reference to depth. Therefore, normally the workers tend to dig shallow trenches. As
       standard depth of the trench is important for future life and protection of cables,
       this tendency has to be discouraged. In order to encourage the contractor to achieve
       best possible depth in the face of site constraints, the following scale of payment
       shall be applied for digging trenches of lesser depths, subjects to condition that
       relaxation has been granted by the competent authority for lesser depths.
                      STANDARD DEPTH OF TRENCH - 165 cms.
       Depth between                       Reduction in rate
       <165 Cms. to 150Cms.               5%
       <150 Cms. to 130Cms.               12.5% of approved rates.
       <130 Cms. to 100 Cms               25% of approved rates.
       Below 100 Cms.                      40% of approved rates

       The payment for subnormal depth will be calculated as per formulae given below:-

       P= (100-ROR) x RA x D
       -----------------------------------
       100 x ND

       P         =         Payment for one meter
       ROR       =         Reduction in rate in % as given above
       RA        =         Approved rate of trenching per meter
       D         =         Actual depth in Cms.
       ND        =         Nominal depth of trench 165/140/120 Cms for which the tender
                           has been floated.

23.8   Measurement of Lengths and profiles of strata and protection: -            The
       measurements of length of trenches are on running meter basis, irrespective of type
       of soil encountered while digging. The type of protection provided (item code-wise) in
       a segment shall be recorded in the measurement book in the sheet provided for this
       purpose.

23.9   Measurement of length of cable: - The length of cables laid in trenches, through
       pipes and through ducts shall be measured by use of RODO Meter/Measuring Tape.
       The length should be cross verified with the marking of lengths on the cables. The
       lengths shall be recorded in sheet provided in the measurement book.
