Answer

The tender for running the University canteen was submitted by the appellant along with the third respondent. On opening tenders, the offer of writ appellant to pay a monthly rent of Rs. 33,399 was found to be the highest. But the third respondent along with others was invited for negotiations and he enhanced his offer to Rs. 45,999. The writ appellant did not participate in negotiations and also did not agree to enhance his tender offer.

The third respondent was not the only a defaulter in respect of another university canteen earlier but alleged to have dragged the university into several litigations. University authorities awarded the contract to the writ appellant. The third respondent’s writ challenged awarding the contract to the writ appellant and succeeded. Hence, this appeal filed by the writ appellant.

When the offer of the writ appellant was highest, the same deserved acceptance. University authorities could not invite for any kind of negotiations. By awarding the contract to the writ appellant, though after negotiations, the University authorities didn’t commit any illegality. Therefore, the appeal filed by the writ appellant deserves to be accepted.
