Panaji: Election Commission of India`s Goa
office on Monday began monitoring of money transactions through
banks.

Chief Electoral Officer S Kumarswamy told reporters here
today that any transaction above Rs 2.5 lakh through the bank
would be monitored.

Flying squads will apprehend the person and seek
documents related to the money withdrawn or deposited.
The Commission has also decided to take the help of
Income Tax officials to scrutinise such transactions.

Kumarswamy admitted that political parties and candidates
had clever ways of spending money or distributing liquor
without coming under EC`s scanner. "It is a challenge to find
out these tactics," he said.
