SEBI: Crores of people’s money is stuck in Sahara Group! Sahara Group chief Subrata Roy also passed away recently. After this, there are many questions in the minds of investors whether they will get their stuck money back or not? Meanwhile, a new report has come out. The report claims that consideration is being given to transferring Sahara’s money to the consolidated fund.
An Economic Times report claims that Sahara-SEBI is considering transferring unclaimed funds from its refund account to the consolidated fund. Besides, legal advice is also being taken from the government. In such a situation, if an investor makes a claim against the fund in future, the money can be returned to him.
According to the information, more than Rs 25 thousand crore was recovered from Sahara Group and after this till March 31, only about Rs 138 crore was transferred. The remaining money was deposited in the government bank. In 2012, the Supreme Court upheld SEBI’s decision and ordered Sahara Group to return the investors’ money with interest. Along with this, the Supreme Court also asked to deposit funds with the government.
The Supreme Court said that if the investors cannot be identified even after verification, then such funds will be deposited with the government. However, many investors have still not come forward.
