The Company was registered in 2008 and Cuttack ADM had earlier auctioned some land of the chit-fund company in Ganjam and other parts of the state in June 2016. The bidders had participated in an auction for 2 acres and 101 decimals of land at Chhatrapur and 83 decimals at Tikiti.

Sources said the Delhi-based firm was booked in six cases for cheating depositors to the tune of several crores in 2013.

Today, the officials of the ED are carrying out raids on the houses of the Company’s Director, manager and other officials in Odisha. Only after a proper investigation, it can be ascertained what has been found by the investigating agency.
