While Goa government has assured the Assembly that a contract signed with an Indo-German joint venture on installing high security number plates on vehicles will be reconsidered, company officials claimed they have not received any communication from authorities in this regard.

"We have no formal intimation from the state government on whatever happened in the Assembly, at least till now," Girish Karadkar, Marketing Manager of Shimnit Utsch India Private Limited, told reporters in Panaji.

The project "is on and we are installing high security number plates on the vehicles as per our contract with the state," Karadkar said.

Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat had on Friday assured the House that the government will reconsider the agreement signed with the company after the leader of opposition Manohar Parrikar pointed out several alleged irregularities in it.

Parrikar had also alleged that Indian partner of the company had links with criminals like Babloo Srivastava.

However, the company alleged that "there have been consistent, well calculated attempts by persons, who are opposed to the scheme, trying to impede the progress of the project in the country including Goa."
