The GHMC in order curb the high-level corruption has decided to form special teams to identify the list of constructions being executed and maintain a data base. The civic body officials warn that the erring officers may end up in jail if they do not coordinate with the special teams and provide the records of ongoing construction activity.
The GJMC is also mulling handing over the details of unauthorised constructions to Income Tax Department on the suspicion that most of them might have been constructed with the black money.
