Now it's even more expensive to Publish Tenders

Directorate of Advertising & Visual Publicity (DAVP) is the nodal agency which approves the rate, a newspaper can charge for publishing Tenders, which primarily depends on Circulation of the newspapers.

DAVP has offlate increased the advertising rates by 24%, which makes publishing Tenders in newspapers even more expensive. Pl. read this article Davp increases rates.

As per my estimates both Central & State Government annually publishes more than 250,000 Tenders, all of them are available on Each Tenders is published in 2/3 publications, and at an average rate of Rs.500/CC, it translates into whooping Rs. 1000 Cr. A gross wastage of Public Money

In Internet age when you can reach your suppliers at click of a mouse that too at fraction of a cost, newspaper turns out to be a very expensive & an ineffective media to advertise Tenders.

Hence CVC, recommends that for publishing both Public & Limited Tenders website should be used as per various circulars listed on its website.

Please note that CVC recommends that the size of advertisement if at all published in newspapers should be minimum to save publication cost. The advt should carry Organisation name, nature of work & link to website which says more details are available on website along with Tender Document which can be downloaded for free of cost.
