Two sets of the list of depositors are being verified at the field level - one is the list of the Rose Valley group as forwarded by the Hon'able court and other is the list of small depositors suggested by the Hon'able Commission of Enquiry," said Finance Secretary T K Pandey.

There are around 3.93 lakh persons in Rose valley list and 12,000 persons in Commission s list, he said adding that the entire verification process would be clean and transparent free from any ulterior motive, he said.

One toll-free telephone bearing the number-18003457 and email address dipfd.odisha@gmail.com have been activated through which any person who feels deprived during verification can communicate.
