Is it okay and legal to register vendors without publicity, and carry out a limited tender among them without publicity in a fully state government owned company for IT and communication goods & services by selecting among vendors registered on basis of arbitrary recommendation of vendors by company officials in any state of India as per vigilance norms laws like Contract law and anti corruption law provisions in force in force because this goes against common sense fairness.Is this not a malpractice and irregularity and contrary to the relevant provisions of law and vigilance norms in force and extant and set by Central Vigilance Commission in India.In this case vendors are registered without advertised invitation for enlistment in any newspaper or website and limited tender/NIT/Request for Quotation is carried out without any publicity .Is this legal as per relevant provisions of applicable laws of India and govt financial rules and CVC guidelines and relevant laws in West Bengal
