Delhi Governor V.K. Saxena has directed his general secretary to recover Rs 97 crore from the Aam Aadmi Party for political advertisements published under the guise of government advertisements, official sources said on Tuesday.

In 2016, the State Advertising Content Regulatory Commission instructed the Information and Advertising Agency (IAAD) to identify specific ads published by the government that “seriously violated guidelines” and determine the amount spent on such ads. and the same will be reimbursed by the ruling AAP, they added.

DIP estimated that Rs 97,14,69,137 was spent or booked due to “unregulated advertisements”.

”Out of this, more than Rs 42.26 crore has already been released by DIP, while Rs 54.87 crore of the published advertisement remains unpaid,” the source said.

The 2017 DIP directed AAP to immediately pay over Rs 42.26 crore to the exchequer and pay the pending Rs 54.87 crore directly to advertising agencies or publications within 30 days.

“However, even after the passage of five years and eight months, AAP has not complied with this DIP order,” the source said.
