Tender in India has to be published in India. There is no scope for internal tender, or tender on recommendation without publishing. So of any such tender which is not published is not valid.

Any government property can’t be sold with calling for tender and/or auction. The illegal sale can be challenged by PIL or writ in high court. The vigilance department had laid down the mode of publication and number of news. Papers. The way you have explained, it seems there exists illegality. I can advice better after seeing the papers.
