Economic Offences Wing (EOW) under the Mumbai police department is preparing a list of builders involved in alleged mass cheating in the Thane, Mumbai, Palghar areas and Navi Mumbai. The list will be published on public forums so that people know of their dodgy reputation and don’t get trapped in fraudulent schemes. Similarly EOW is also cracking down on builders who sell one flat to multiple people and later shut down their offices.

Kamala Landmark group has seen its first information report (FIR) filed by the Economic Offences Wing officials on the basis of the accusation by a Santacruz-based trading company owner. According to the company owner, Kamala Landmark group has duped them of Rs2.39 Crores.

The four directors of the company have been accused of cheating over 250 people for the amount of Rs 300 Crore, and are currently in jail. After the recent updates, they will be soon taken into the custody by EOW.
