Legal battle between Keltron and Kochi Corporation over RFID project
initiate a legal battle with the Keltron company after the latter secured a favourable verdict from the High Court to collect compensation from the civic body for the delay in installing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system to track hoardings in the city. As per the agreement, the corporation had to remit the amount to Keltron immediately after the installation of RFID. Though the civic body procured RFID chips worth `45 lakh, the project has been put on the hold. If Keltron secures a favourable verdict from the division bench on the issue, which is likely to come up before the court on February 27, the corporation will have to spend a hefty amount as compensation.
