Copyright of falsification, Maharashtra Chikki Scam Part 6

Copyrighted books are another form of procurement procedure, actually there is nothing special in copyrighted material that WCD has purchased. One can easily get copyright of anything. It is not binding on any authority to buy copyrighted work. In WCD copyrights are obtained only to avoid competition. In this case owner of copy right decides cost of his books and WCD purchases it on just meager discount.

(Anne -52 )   Immediately within 4 days he  gave commissioner WCD proposal to purchase these books in his companies name  i.e. even before copyright is awarded .Now don’t ask  How he came to know ,that said department is interested in purchasing  such product. Obviously tekavade decided cost of his work. Commissioner WCD promptly wrote a letter to Principle secretary on 5th September i.e. within three days describing nature of book and cost. Commissioner or Principal Secretary didn’t even look at in whose name copyright application has been made. They blindly believed what tekavade was saying and forwarded proposal in his company’s name.
