Dhenkanal, Dec 3: A forum of contractors locked down the Hindol NAC office in Dhenkanal district on Friday demanding the release of their pending bill.
Subsequently, they carried a demonstration in front of the office demanding a settlement of the impending bill.
Sources, some contractors have not so far received the final bills of a number of projects despite executing them properly. Reacting to it, a group of contractors demonstrated against the NAC authorities in the morning. The contractors have protested in front of the NAC office since they have not received the bills and payments for the construction works they have already completed for several months.
However, after almost 4 hours of protest, the contractors called off the demonstration after a negotiation with the Urban Body authorities.
