Pragna Research Consultancy Services, Hyderabad did an Impact Assessment Study of Hyderabad Metro Rail Project for L&T Metro Rail. 4 Reports on the 4 different Stages with numerous errors and repetitions done using cut, copy and paste of content across reports were delivered to L & T Metro Rail. The junk contained in the Reports had to be processed to enable reuse and recycle of content for the Presentations.
A staffer in L&T Metro Rail was given my telephone number for contact by a lady from Pragna for assistance in converting the Reports into Presentations. The staffer said that she couldn’t do it herself as she was busy with personal matters and had to seek help on personal request and compensate for it out of her salary. The staffer grossly underestimated the costs, labor and time involved in the work, for reasons best known to her, which was far beyond her ability to pay for it. She and the lady from Pragna insist that L&T Metro Rail and Pragna have nothing to do with this work and this was expected to be done on a personal capacity for a payment that is less than 1/10th of the cost involved to do it.
The Report on Stage 3 was converted into a Presentation and sent to the staffer. Since either of the organizations involved in the creation of these Reports say they have nothing to do with it, the staffer has no ability to pay a realistic price for the conversion of Reports into Presentations and given the prevalent poverty (not necessarily in the material sense) of these organizations and staff working with them, I decide to leave this presentation with them as a donation.
To discourage full or partial use of the contents without acknowledgement of source by these organizations and their staff, as well as to get a bit of personal mileage as return for this unpaid free effort (can we call it voluntary?) and provide some insights on what is perceived to be happening by people of Hyderabad on the Metro Rail Project, the Presentation on Stage 3 (Begumpet to Shilparamam) is available online for those who may be interested in it.
