Bengaluru: The State High Court has stayed all the upcoming proceedings with regard to a tender issued by the State Department of Health and Family Welfare to an agent of a Chinese company.

High Court has given the said ruling citing the General Finance Rules 2017 which does not give permission to unregistered entities from participating in tenders if the bidder is from a country that shares a land border with India. An intra-court appeal was filed by Philips India Limited after its request for a stay on the tender issued to Foress Healthcare LLP was not considered by the court earlier. Foress Healthcare is an agent of the Shanghai United Imaging Healthcare Co Ltd. based in Shanghai, China.

“The State Government had specifically undertaken to abide by this policy decision of the Central Government on the grounds of national security,’ the High Court stated in its ruling.
