Answer:- Thank you for writing to us! As per your query, the answer to it is this that a relevant provision relating to such type of addition or deletion must exist in the already provided bidding documents. Alternatively, repeat orders not exceeding 15% of the original procurement can be issued/awarded under Rule 42(c)(iv) of Public Procurement Rules, 2004 subject to underlying conditions. However, change of rates after opening and evaluation of bids is not allowed in any case under Public Procurement Rules, 2004.
