Inquiry is being held with regard to Kondhane, Chanera, Balganga, Kalu, Shai, Susari, Gadnadi, Shill, Jamda, Shirshinge, Kal Kumbhe and Gadgadi projects.

The state government in its affidavit also told the HC that four officers have been suspended pending inquiry in connection with Kondhane project.
