Azad has written to the judge that “Rs. 1.63 crore has been given in authorized bills only in the last few months.

Furthermore, Manchanda said that he also mentioned all these matters to the Justice. The president, vice-president, treasurer and secretary have given up for several reasons- resignation, suspension, legal work of holding workplace challenged in court calendar, and so on. –he is in the top position in DDCA.
Manchanda said that “ Being the top authority, I don’t know here what my place is. The signatures in the cheques have been customized and I have been excluded from all these matters. I don’t know why the cheques have not been signed”.
According to HT on Sunday (22-03-2020), at the present situation, DDCA has Rs.11 crore in its accounts.
