An FIR has been lodged against India Info Line, including its Chairman Nirmal Jain and Director Mukesh Kumar Singh, under various sections of the Indian Penal Code for criminal breach of trust, cheating and fraud following an order from the Dadar metropolitan magistrate on September 2.
According to the complaint, Ensemble had been awarded a contract of Rs 8 crores on June 2 last year to execute interiors for the office of India Info Line at the Indiabulls center in central Mumbai.
"As per the contract, India Info Line was required to pay an advance of 20 per cent of the contract value (1.63
crores) and further payments were to be made later in installments. The company however paid us an advance of Rs 77 lakh only," Director of Ensemble, Vikas Rathod told PTI.

were illegaly confiscated by the accused, who directed them not to enter the site henceforth.
