In the letter secretary Sundaray said ” I would like to bring to your attention a recent development regarding some members of the UCCC who have diverged from the established platform and have clandestinely formed a pseudo organization under the same name. This action is deemed null and void under the 1860 Society Registration Act of the Government of India.”

“Subsequently, this matter was brought before the Honourable High Court of Cuttack, which has issued a stay order vide IA No 20562 of 2023 dated 10/01/2024 against the use of the registration certificate vide registration No 615/720202300068 of 2023-24,issued by IGR, Cuttack.”

“During the period of the stay order, their attempt to engage with the Central Board of Film Certification by recommending the issuance of a Censor certificate to a film producer is considered contempt of court.”

“Given the gravity of the situation, we urge you to recognize the sensitivity of the matter and refrain from endorsing or engaging with the aforementioned body for any official purposes.”
