The investigation by our group was started when we observed certain companies (14) applying for land use change citing needs of SEZs being developed by Maytas Properties Pvt. Limited.
All these companies are represented by Rajus and all surprisingly have similar sounding names which raised doubts. We then decided to conduct our enquiry using public documents like those available with RoC and Revenue Department Land Records.
We held a press conference on 10th February, 2009 and below are the details.

1. The Press Invite
2. The Press Note
3. More details about the companies
The documents revealed the story behind and how even the regulatory agencies like the ROC did not find anything fishy in this apparent and brazen way of misleading people and the system.
Sample this one document and you will know what went on behind the scenes.
"B. Teja Raju (son of Ramalinga Raju) resigns from one company namely "Maytas Ventures SEZ" and interstingly quotes the name of an other company "Maytas Hill County SEZ" in the body of the letter"
The press meet was well attended and it was covered in both the National and Local dailies.

This is just a sample of what RTI can do.
