The Central Vigilance Commissioner has ordered a CBI probe into land allotment for two mega projects in Chandigarh – the film city and the amusement-cum-theme park.

With the probe, the Chandigarh Administration’s top brass is in the dock for allegedly favouring private companies by allotting land to them at throwaway prices. A special audit initiated by the Union Home Ministry has highlighted glaring discrepancies in the two projects which the CVC has been probing for over nine months now.

Chandigarh Finance Secretary Sanjay Kumar, addressing a press conference here, said the report prepared by the Home Ministry was “just a regular audit.”
