The allegation of bogus companies had come up after NTC raised a complaint that it was not informed of the re-tendering process. DPI Biju Prabhakar sent the letter to the NTC managing director on Friday after the textile corporation in a letter complained that it was not informed about the re-tendering process, though it could supply school uniform at Rs 185 for one uniform set (one shirt and one pant/shorts).
