The BBMP Employees Union has sought protection for its members who have exposed scams in the civic body.
Speaking to reporters, the Union President R Subramaniam said Assistant Revenue Officer and other staffers in Herohalli Sub-division (Rajarajeshwari Nagar zone) have exposed scam related to misappropriation of funds by their colleagues. It has led to unearthing of more number of cheque bounce cases, he added.

He also demanded the suspension of officials involved in the scam. S
He demanded the BBMP to transfer Revenue Department officials to different zones to prevent further scams.
“There is a need to stop the system of paying tax through cheques,” Subramaniam observed.
