..then Seize vehicles of officials, says court
District and session court has ordered to seize 18 vehicles, which includes Deputy commissioner, Additional Deputy Commissioner, BCC commissioner, Mayor and other’s vehicle if Belgaum City corporation fails to pay pending bill of Catcon Consultancy of Rs. 66.53 lakh.
According to the sources, in 2008 special development fund of Rs.100 crore was sanctioned for the city by state government. But BCC could not get enough staff to estimate and develop the work. So they hired Catcon consultancy for planning and estimating the work. After completion of the work Catcon submitted bill to BCC which was refused by BCC officials as they thought it was excess bill and because of this Catcon had to move to court.
