The agency told the Supreme Court that evidence reveals that M/s Unitac and Sane Ventures are proxy firms of LIFE Mission used for receiving foreign contribution from UAE and by receiving funds in the said manner a CAG Audit, government formalities and the rigours of FCRA were avoided so that kickbacks could be received.

Unitac and Sane Ventures received a contribution from a foreign source for and on behalf of Life Mission and the said money received was used to pay kickbacks and costly gifts to Government servants and employees of Life Mission, it said.

The submission was made in response to a plea filed by the CEO of Life Mission Project of the Kerala government challenging the High Court order allowing probe by the central agency into the corruption allegations with regard to the construction of dwelling units and a health centre for flood victims in the state.
