Bhubaneswar: With the upsurge in the number of fraud builders in the State, the Lokpal has recommended the State Government to set up special cells in Bhubaneswar Development Authority, Cuttack Development Authority as well as in other regional development authorities.

In each cell there will be atleast five senior officers who will supervise the plans of the builders and to see to it that the builders are not involved in any sort of illegalities.

Moreover, with the steady increase in the number of fraud cases registered in the police stations, the State Police have also been advised to establish a separate wing to investigate fraudulent transactions, where in each wing will be headed by an officer of the rank of a Superintendent of Police (SP).

The Lokpal’s directions came into action following a petition filed by a person called Mohinidhar Patnaik who was one of the victim of the fraud.
