provision for further delegation has been set by the application. The logic of the same is
detailed as under -

executive authority for creation/ updation/ confirmation of estimates. These
authorized users can further assign creation/ updation /confirmation responsibility
to their subordinate users up to one level.

2. At executing agency’s login, following screen opens up upon clicking the link
“Delegation of Estimate Creation Authority”.
A button is available against each work with name “edit”. Executing agency has to
click upon button “edit”, to further delegate the authority.
