The SFIO (Serious Fraud Investigation Office) said that the report on chit fund scams by Saradha and other companies will be submitted by march. The Ministry had earlier expected the final report by last December.
SFIO said in its last interim report, that the chit fund companies were indulging in serious financial mismanagement and the funds were taken illegally out by its promoters. They also tried to take advantage, where jurisdiction was overlapping and the same was used to exploit the regulatory gap.
At the same time three steps taken in investors favor:
- All state Government regulators and agencies have given a massive effort to put down, the fraudulent money making schemes.
- To ensure a better regulation, an Inter-Ministerial co-ordination group has been set up to deal with the menace.
- SFIO has also set-up a group, to look into the functioning of ‘Chit Fund companies’ in the country .
This group will set up a proper enforcement by regulatory framework for Multi level Marketing (MLM), Non-Banking Finance Companies (NBFC) and other companies running Collective Investment schemes (CIS).
