Harikumar, Chairman of the Federation of Malayalam Cine
Technicians' Association (MACTA) has stated in a press release that
the Ernakulam district court had restricted other organizations
from using MACTA's name and logo, after the court found some
individuals misusing the name and logo of the association.
Earlier, MACTA had filed a complaint with the Ernakulam chief
judicial magistrate alleging that Film Employees' Federation of
Kerala (FEFKA), a breakaway faction of technicians in the Malayalam
film industry, used the name of the association to collect money
from its members.
Later, the court had instructed Tripunithura Hill Palace Police
to probe on the case against FEFKA on the charge of cheating.
However, FEFKA, which was formed after a dispute with director
Vinayan-led MACTA, had denied all allegations by the MACTA
