Advt firm takes legal route to stay in the hunt

Says contract cannot be cancelled through the civic body House without following the procedure for arbitration

Jalandhar, March 3

The MC House had recently passed a resolution to cancel the contract for unipole advertisement allotted to firm Creative Designers. The firm officials have now ‘served a legal notice’ on the matter.

The notice has been served on Secretary, Local Bodies Department; Director, Local Bodies Department; Municipal Corporation Commissioner and Joint Commissioner. The firm officials said the contract cannot be cancelled through the MC House without following the procedure for arbitration. The firm has sought a reply from the MC officials within 15 days.

Meanwhile, the MC authorities are yet to send the proceedings of the House meeting to the officials of the Local Bodies Department for their approval. The contract would be considered to be terminated only after the Local Bodies officials approve the resolutions of the MC House passed on February 19. The members of the advertisement ad-hoc committee had been alleging fraud in the execution of the advertisement works by the contractor in connivance with the officials. The officials had boycotted the meeting. The unipole advertisement company had denied all charges of fraud. — TNS
