Just after it got functional last month, it seems that the bio-remediation project to clean the Budha Nullah has hit a roadblock as contractor of the project has alleged that he has not been paid for the work completed till date. He has said that he will not go ahead with the project until he will not get his payment.

Members of the Work Done Verification Committee claim that there are some discrepancies in the billing done by the contractor and until these discrepancies are not cleared, they cannot clear the bills. The committee comprises officials of the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB), the Ludhiana Municipal Corporation and the Punjab Water Supply and Sewerage Board.
