FINANCIAL FRAUDSTERS WHO DUPE PEOPLES’ MONEY NEED TO BE DEALT WITH SEVERLY IN INDIA

Published

on

As the science and technology is advancing so are the frauds, particularly the economic frauds galloping with high speed duping hundreds of thousands of innocent people in the vast country like India which is the second largest country in the world in terms of population with more than 60% people still living in rural India and not so literate.

Therefore the fraudsters find more scope to commit their illegal acts duping investers in the names of doubling their money in a short span of time enticing them in the name of reputation or big brands and finally eloping with huge amounts.

In India such economic frauds have become the order of the day with fraudsters and tricksters fleeing out of the states or country and seeking foreign citizenship or tranmitting/ transacting the entire money collected illegally from investors or their so called valued customers in foreign banks finally physically eloping abroad with families thus leaving hundreds of thousands of investors who’d invested their hard earned money in lurch and utter shock.

There have allegedly been hundreds of suicides by the people who’d lost their lacs of Rupees, even crores or say the entire savings of the life by being tricked, defaulted or betrayed by such fraudsters. I remember a company called City Lumisoune which duped thousands of investers of several thousand crores, myself being one of the victims with bounced checks still in my possession n no hope of getting back the invested hard earned money.

There are builders, big finance companies, chit fund dealers and those who promise to double the income in a year or two years time thus manipulatingly enticing investers out of the greed of getting the money doubled.

But the most worrisome part the whole story is, the successive governments at the centre or states have not shown any evidence of being serious in penalising these fraudsters who are till date active in various parts of the country.

As far as I personally know not a single investor duped by these fraud outlets or companies or in negligible numbers have received back his or her hard earned money invested in these fraud companies.

Slowly n gradually the duped invester is compelled to forget the fraud due to various other problems cropping up in their lives and hence these financial criminals get off conveniently from the shackles of law, to again go for such financial misadventures.

India, unfortunately has allegedly become a safe haven for these fraud companies or individual fraudsters who influence the system, police, financial regulators by allegedly in league with them and finally getting off.

If one seriously goes to check the record of such financial fraudsters and if the government agencies really, earnestly release their records in the open for the general public viewing, I am sure not only will we find several unresolved cases but would also be shocked to find the duped amount by these dubios financial companies or private players in fraud businesses going in hundreds of thousands of crores.

The few instances of Ponji Scheme fraud of 500 crores, City Lumisuone fraud, Mumbai, fraud in the name of tree plantatiin, Sahara, Kingfisher, Neerav Modi and Mehul Chouksi and Lalit Modi etc etc are in front of us( that have been highlighted by the media) and the government of the day is not able to do anything credible to bring them back to India and retrieve the government’s money which ultimately is the miney of publiq exchequer, that amounts to more than 15000 crores.

Just imagine that if the system could not recover its own money from these financial fraudsters, how would the general public duped by these fraudsters ever receive their individual money. Sounds shocking.

These days a new fraud is being committed right under the nose of the banking system. There are hundreds of fraud call centres working in India clandestinely who are making false calls and duping people of their entire bank savings after imposting themselves as bank managers or employees and asking them their pan numbers or Adhar Card details inorder to reopen their regular bank account which these fraudsters claim has been closed.

The account holder usually gets confused, particularly the not so educated, women or senior citizens and part with the pan numbers or other adhar card or bank details finally finding their entire savings having been siphoned off by these fraudsters.

But hardly anything seems to have been done from the government’s side, as such fraud calls and threatening is on, on peoples’ mobiles disturbing their peace of mind and confusing them very often.

Just today in my presence a friend of mine got a fake or prank call from two mobile phone numbers ( secured with him) asking him his adhar details and pan card details under the pretext that his SBI account has been closed and for reopening it , the fake caller, who claimed himself as the SBI branch manager said that he needs them urgently.

When he called back and pressurised the caller to reveal his details : he said that he is calling from the main SBI headquarter Kurla, Mumbai and disconnected the call in a huff. The receiver of the call said that this is the third call he has received today.
What’s your take friends?

The handloom weavers of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand in particular are badly suffering for want of yarn for the last more than eight months as the National Handloom Development Corporation has arbitrarily stopped the supply of yarns to the handloom weavers which was the only source of income for the survival and sustainability of their poor and economically deprived underprivileged families.

Hundreds of handloom weavers, men and women from Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand today protested in front of the headquarter of National Handloom Development Corporation in Noida and raised vociferous slogans against the handloom authorities for blocking the supply of uarn for the last five months.

Raising slogans under scorching sun hundreds of slogan shouting demonstraters, men and women were carrying play cards in their hands mentioning slogans: Garibon ka haq maar rahi hai sarkar ( the govt is killing the rights of the poor), hame hamara haq do ( give us our rights) and down with NHDC etc.

The protest demonstration was organised by Uttarar Pradesh Bunkar Sangharsh Union. The union also presented a memorandum addressed to the union textiles minister Smriti Irani demanding immediate release of yarns to the affected weavers of the state whose families are in doldrums and in the state of jeopardy due to their respective handloom business n employment having been stopped for the last five months.

It may be recalled that the National Handloom Development Corporation, Noida have completely stopped the supply of yarns to the weavers of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand for the last five months.

According to the Uttar Pradesh Bunkar Union, the Corporation has arbitrarily stopped the supply of yarns since last first of April despite the very fact that the yarns’ supply of the union government is already
existing which has been unambiguously substantiated by the textile department’s regional manager and the enforcement director( commercial).

The union is also of the view that the Handloom Department had cleared all the bills of the weavers by 31st March but this release of payment has not reached the weaving yarn mills till date. And it’s because of this lapse that the mills are not supplying the requisite quota of yarns to the weavers as a result hundreds of thousands of them have become unemployeed and on the verge of starvation.

Prominent handloom leaders who participated in this massive protest demonstration were Mahammed Farooq Ansari, from Etaava, President of the union, Zuber Ansari from Sitapur, Mohammed Anwar from Baanda, Hazi Abdul Ansari and Mohammed Llaik etc.

According to the president of Uttar Pradesh Harkargha Bunkar Association Mohammed Farouq Ansari the Hathkargha Bunkar Union has demanded immediate release of the last five months quota of the yarn and subsequent release of the balance payments to the handlooms n mills so that they are able to release the yarn at the earliest and hundreds of thousands of weavers of Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh are able to survive and start earning their livelihoods againwho are currently on the verge of starvation.

A CHEF CART, “THE TREAT,” WHERE KAKA USED TO DINE WHILE IN DELHI REMINDS OF THE SUPER STAR RAJESH KHANNA, fully studded with his pictures

Published

There are millions of die hard fans of Rajesh Khanna aka Kaka in India and abroad and so am I who worked as his media advisor for over a decade or so but Vipin Oberoi is a unique die hard fan of his who and who’s entire family have been in so close proximity during Kaka’s thick and thin that after the super star of the millenium Kaka’s leaving for the eternal home Vipin acknowledges the same affection and love from Dimple, her daughters and even the super star of today Akshay Khanna, late Kaka’s son in law.

Vipin Oberoi my close trusted friend and Kaka’sdie hard fan, had tremendous obsession and admiration for Kakaji since beginning but actually came in his direct and regular contact when Kaka arrived in Delhi to contest the parliamentary election from New Delhi on Congress ticket on the then prime minister Rajiv Gandhi’s insistence.

I however had joined Kaka from day one as his media advisor and met Vipin thereafter. Vipin was then a businessmen dealing with electronics gadgets like televisions and other items but was so badly involved in Kaka’s election that he has to give away that profitable business unwillingly.

He has a lovely family, with both the daughters having settled abroad after doing their law. Vipin then had no option but to start a chef cart/ van in Cannaught at Janpath that he got with Kaka’s support and blessings. It later on was shifted behind the prestigious Jesus and Merry college in Chanakyapuri, a prestigious Diplomatic Enclave.

Fully studded with Rajesh Khanna’s pictures and his superhit songs going on round the clock makes the environment in and around the vicinity fully glamorous and pleasent.

Kaka used to very often visit this chef cart called The Treat with the intent to help Vipin increase his sale. He loved and blessed Vipin Oberoi always and used to visit the place during night time after 9 till 11 or 12, sometime with Bollywood stars as well.

Kaka’s wife and a popular actress Dimple and children Twinkle and Rinki if in Delhi also casually visit the place and bless Vipin who’d been in Kaka’s close proximity for more than three decades, taking care of his eating requirements and other things whenever the star turned MP used to be in Delhi.

Vipin travelled with Kaka in several political campaignings as well in Delhi and other parts of the country. I myself had also visited the van, the Treat number of times and met Kaka there and had dinner with him who fortunately always held me in high esteem.

The Treat prepares fantastic and delicious non veg items consumed by good number of customers and Kaka’s fan who visit the place every alternate days with family and friends from various nooks and corners of Delhi. Vipin Oberoi alongwith Kaka’s colleagues and fans in Delhi every year celebrate and remember this great legend by organising a Bhandara and prayer meeting at the venue of THE TREAT in Chanakyapuri.

The treat is the best address for individuals and family goers for dinner non vegetarian n vegetarian delicacies where Kaka used to usually dine while he was alive.

Rs1 lakh crore of public exchequer at God’s will. Will be recovered or not, is anybody’s guess?

Published

on

The revelation of about hundreds of private companies and corporates being the willful defaulters having put to loss a staggering amount of one lakh crore or even more during the last few decades not returning the same intentionally though many of them could have done so, unambiguously speaks of the fact that these heavy defaulters are in league with the powerful people in the system and had conveniently managed to siphon off such a huge amount of the public exchequer without any fear or terror of law.

Just imagine, on the one hand thousands of farmers had committed suicides in our country and are still doing so for not being able to repay just a few lakhs or thousands of rupees due to genuine drought or short rain cycle that results in the subsequent production losses and on the other hand the rich, affluent and the privileged corporate houses and industrialists willfully hang on the lakhs of crores of government money thus not only making mockery of our system but leading the country towards economic backwardness.

But the question is, who is to be actually blamed for this huge lapse, the government agencies, the banks or the corporates/ industrialists. The answer is simple, all the three of them. There have been hundreds of instances that the goons and bouncers of banks and financiers find it too easy to harrass, victimise and even thrash the farmers, youths, students and even woman and forcibly take back/ consficate their financed vehicles, tracters etc for the failure to pay even few inslalments due to some genuine constraints but in the case of these powerful and highly rich the system falls on their feet, obnoxiously, at the expense of the nation’s interest.

It really sounds shocking and higly deplorable that Vijay Mallaya, Nirav and Lalit Modi flee the country after duping banks of several thousand crores and so are many others and now a new shocking revelation comes that hundreds of such sharks have willfully defaulted the government of more than one lakh crores of rupees, the massive amount that could have resolved the financial crisis of 80% of our farmers and resurrected the health related conditions of our country’s 90% of the population having covered them under insurance umbrella of social and health security.

Why is it that we’ve been tolerating these economic offenders for so long knowing very well that its a hard earned tax payers money of public exchequer. Why is it that the economic offences wing, the CBDT, the ED, the IT department and departments like revenue intelligence didn’t take any action. And why is it that now the skeletons are being explored, diclosed and made to fall down from the cupboards, daily?

The point is clear. The national election are nearing and the people of the country need an answer made during the pre polls, four years ago. Hope the government of the day succeeds in retrieving this one lakh crore at the earliest and uses it justifiably for the welfare of the farmers and the underprivileged sections of the society. If not now it will really, never be in the future? What’s your take friends?

Entrepreneurs’ Failure in our country

Published

on

Majority of you might be aware of this “not so casual term”- ENTREPRENEURSHIP. Well, I don’t think being familiar with this word or having much information about it would be enough for you in case you are dreaming to be the one associated with this. To be an Entrepreneur is not so easy like everyone thinks and also not everyone’s cup of tea. However, in the case that you are able to be the one successful entrepreneur, a single person cannot handle the whole, you would undoubtedly need a team of co-workers.

So, in case you are an Entrepreneur from India, you just have to “Hope for the best and be ready for the worst”. Your venture might turn out to be the best thing of your life or maybe the worst. No one knows! In a busy country like India, success and failures are the activities that are quite certain to happen daily. One of the biggest reasons responsible for the failure of the ventures in India is the lack of funding. According to various reports, it has been concluded that approximately 1000 startups have vanished in the previous two consecutive years. Much of scary information, right? No need of any worries, in case you are dedicated and you think you have many funds to start up a business and make it grow to heights, trust me you can be the successful one.

Now I am going to site some of the major reasons responsible for the failure of the entrepreneurs in India. Have a look:

1- Impatience in the budding entrepreneurs

   No one can get instant recognition and fame in this world. For being the best or even one of the best entrepreneurs, you need to have a lot of things and qualities in you and one of them is being patient. Nothing is straight in this field. When you start realising that everything has started to head towards south, one needs to handle those restless situations maturely. Setting up a venture needs new and advance technologies, large scale investment, scaling of their business etc, thus don’t look out for the shortcuts leading to success, solve all the problems and issues one by one and feel the development by experiencing it.

2- Mentors can’t be reached easily

Any company whether developed on in its starting phase, needs a mentor. But, reaching out to the most successful and the best mentor is not so easy in India. It is even more difficult than arranging funds for your venture in case you are lacking behind in it. Mentoring is the best way for and Entrepreneur to achieve success and also, the studies show that the business having the support of a mentor is more likely to reach greater heights rather than the others having no mentors. So, if you are not having one, get him now if you want to see the higher world.

3- Top tier colleges have absence of incubation centres

The top colleges are just providing the students with those kinds of professors who are not just dedicated towards their work. They just think this teaching is just a part of the course and nothing else. They are professors only because they know all the answers even if they have never experienced the Entrepreneur’s life and the hardships they all have to suffer during the course of their venture’s setup. Giving the students only the bookish knowledge is not enough, you need to make them experience all the things included in the Entrepreneurship.

 

Conclusion

So, above three were the main reasons of why the Indian Entrepreneurs fail in India. There are many others but, these are the most important and the acknowledged ones. Have a read and in case you are getting ready to own a startup, keep these things in mind and trust me on this! No one can stop you from becoming the most successful Entrepreneur, not even you. Good luck!

Padmavati’s makers in quandary after change of film’s release schedule

Published

on

The most controvertial magnum opus of the most talked about Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, PADMAVATI made with a humongous budget of Rupees 180 crores is in a real fix as the movie has been stalled for now after so much of national protests with political overtones blaming Bhansali for twisting and concocting the historical facts putting highly reverred 16th century Queen Padmavati in poor light as the admirer or keep of the then cruel emperor Allauddun Khiljee which the former outrightly denied as completely baseless and beyond facts.

Now even the chief ministers of Punjab Captain Amrinder Singh, CM UP Yogi Aadityanath and CM Rajasthan Vasundhara Raje Scindia and even Shiv Sena has come out in the open in support of the Rajput Community and the KARNI SENA by writing to the Union I&B Minister Smiriti Irani to not let the fim be released unless the objectionable sections from the movie are taken out. Similarly, the chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification has also come out in the open against Sanjay Leela Bhansali raising strong objections of showing the film to few journalists of repute before being cleared by the CBFC.

The film was earlier slated for the release in the month of December in the first week but since now the release has been deferred due to the ongoing controversy which has now adopted added proportions the film’s postponement is likely to see the cascading affect on the release scheduled for other films, besides spelling huge losses for the exhibitors as well as the distributors. Now since Salman Khan’s film Tiger Zinda hai is all set to be released in the last week of December, Padmavati’s release has been held up till for December. Since the movie has been madeon huge budget of 180 crores the makers can’t take the risk of releasing it one weak before or after of any other good film’s release as it may ruin the chances of Padmavati in the box office.

In view of the December release date going off, the makers are working on fresh strategy to ensure that the film becomes a huge hit and no other film comes in the way of its release. But for this the makersof the fim will have to reframe its entire strategy by taking other film makers into confidence. The experts say that now a release date is very critical and once the makers miss the date earlier fixed as per planning, the whole strategy goes into jeopardy.

Growing Firm vs. Established Firm

Published

If you are a fresher and looking for a job. I can truly understand what is confusing you. There might be a big question mark in your head about “Where to start?”

During my initial years, undoubtedly, I was attracted towards big companies and popular brands but I am telling this from my personal experience, it is definitely not going to be a place for you to start.

When I got into an established organization, I was just treated as a “piece of paper” on which everyone wrote the tasks to perform. In a big organization, each and every person is assigned with a specific task leading to a monotonous life of the employee with no change. I wanted to learn new things for which I never got a chance in those brands. Then I thought to step out of this place and join a growing company or you can say a “startup”.

In a startup, you get to learn as much as you can. You get assigned with various tasks which you enjoy while performing. Well, a startup is an “Exciting Place”. So, a perfect answer to your big question mark “Where to start” is a STARTUP.

I think it would need some more points to prove that “YOU SHOULD START WITH A STARTUP”. Following are the top reasons for you to join a fast-growing company. And, also they tell you on how to know that your search for your job is over for the time being:

Learn and Grow:

“Learn. Believe. Change. Grow. Succeed.”

If you want to learn new things, want more responsibilities and want to do more hard work the start-ups are ready to provide that to you. A growing company offers new challenging assignments to its employees which may provide quick exposure to those workers. A startup cannot move into new business lines, they firstly look in within their own ranks. This also increases the chances of your promotion within that organization.

Facetime with the company leaders:

Want to have a word with the CEO? Yes, in a growing company, you get much chance of getting face time with your CEO and company leaders. You can discuss everything you want to with them and get proper solutions. These face to face interactions help you to learn the best you can as well as get direct advice and make an impression. On the other hand, in a large organization, the employees spend many years in the company without even speaking to their executive managers.

Definitely Impactful:

Now if you want to move on, a growing company is a good choice if you are expecting to make an impact in the next job. Startups give you a chance to interact with different people, work on new projects, and move from team to team and departments to departments. This leads to great results for your career. Your future bosses would love to hire you if you are capable of contributing all your skills to a brand new project.

 

Answerable and responsible:

A startup will lead you to such a position that would be highly impactful. Your work will affect the entire company and its workers. If you do amazing work, you will be praised for it by getting praiseworthy texts and notes by your boss and other members of the company. In a startup, your mistake won’t get you in trouble as long as it was unintentional. It is unavoidable to have responsibility and answerability in a startup.

Grab leadership in the right time:

In a big established company, you need to wait for years to get into a higher position or being a true leader. However, in a startup, if you are doing a great job in all the tasks assigned to you, there are many chances of you getting promoted and becoming a true leader in no time if you have the desired qualities.

Transparent:

Each and every decision made in a startup is transparent. Required information about any new plan, a new program, and new rule will be given to the employees. The startup will provide why, how, when, what and where about the decisions that it takes. However, some information which is meant to be confidential won’t be transparent.

Salary:

You will be paid less than the bigger organizations in a growing company. But the thing is, here you will have an increased ownership and equity. If you are in a bigger company, you will have lesser shares and nominal salary. Whereas, in case of a startup you will have a lesser salary but higher shares.

Major Opportunities:

People with interests in one field or many fields don’t do well in big companies. Big companies need specialization in the kind of work you are performing in the job whole day. But this is not the case in a startup. Startups also need specialization but for the generalists, they can do multiple works if they want. For example, If you want to be an engineer, you can work on the company’s website, and also in the mobile app. But in a big company, if you are working on the company’s website then you have to stick with the same work in all your job years.
