The civic bodies included- Dimapur Municipal Council (DMC), Chumukedima Town Council (CTC) and Ad-hoc Town Council East Dimapur/Purana Bazaar . The discussions centered around artificial scarcity of brick, mixing of inferior quality of sand with superior quality and selling of perishable goods above the prescribed rate of civic bodies.
