Directions were passed to ensure that the cash vans of outsourced agencies/companies carrying the bank’s cash shall not, under any circumstances, carry cash of any third party agencies/individuals except the bank.
The outsourced agencies/companies shall carry letters/ documents including the authorization letters and also the personnel of the outsourced agencies accompanying cash van shall carry identity cards issued by the respective agencies. The whole process of cash transfer has to be video graphed.
He also directed the banks to open hassle-free bank accounts for the candidates who have filled their nomination papers and special counters shall be operated for them at least two days before the start of the nominations.
