21st Century India is moving in the direction of
becoming a Developed Country. Importance on the
growth, Government investment in infrastructure
from the year 2000 has changed the picture of
Indian economy. Rs 1,00,000 crore Government
spending on the core and infrastructure
industries during 2001-03, has created a boom in
the Indian Economy. Indian industries have
gained self-confidence to compete with the world.
  The boom in the economy resulted in the boom
in finance industry and that of Capital Market.
It is unique in India that every bull run in the
Capital Market has got supplemented by a scam.
Harshad Mehta Scam 1992, the scam of CRB-NBFC,
the plantation companies and the Ketan Parekh
Scam.   Industries and finance sector always
tried to tap the primary market during a boom.
Mobilize the financial resources through Public
Issues and IPOs. In 2004-05, more than Rs.24,000
crores have been mobilized from the primary
market through Public Issues and IPOs.   It is
the sad part of the Indian Capital Market that
every IPO boom has a scam. It was during
1986-88, the primary market momentum had a
mini-scam of mini-steel plants and mini-cement
plant public issues. These companies tapped the
market, fooled the Small Investors, collected
hundreds of crores of Rupees, diverted the funds.
Small Investor was the loser.   After the
Harshad Mehta pick, once again the primary market
got a momentum during 1995 to 1997 which resulted
into the vanishing companies scam. Almost 1000
companies raised funds through Public Issues and
got vanished.   During the Ketan Parekh Scam,
several companies changed their names from NBFC,
finance companies to Infotech companies. Tapped
the market. Several companies also created the
hype and got benefited by higher premium.Small
Investors the looser.
The IPO-Demat Scam of 2005 is in a way repetition
of history. It is economic growth, booming
economy, momentum to Capital Market and once
again scamsters. Same mentality has destroyed the
whole of the Indian finance/capital market
regulatory network. It is just like a virus.
Which has demolished, corrupted the banking
system, depository system, Stock Exchanges,SRO,s
Rregulatory network. The failure of surveillance
and vigilance at every level from the Finance
Ministry, RBI, SEBI, NSDL, CDSL, NSE, BSE, Banks,
Depositories. In a single day, 10,000 bank
accounts were being opened, nobody questioned.
Same day 10,000s Demat accounts were opened,
nobody gets suspicious.   Is it possible? It
is connivance. The scamsters, the syndicate
corrupted the whole system. The Demat scam is
the connivance of so-called Panchals, the broker,
the investor, the banker and the DP. All came
together to master-mind the scam, corrupted 53
Public Issues, siphoned off more than 5 crores
shares of Small Investors.   It is a tragedy on
the part of the Indian regulators that the scam
is going on since August 2004. Banks finance
so-called Public Issue applications without even
asking them to open a bank account. It is Bharat
Overseas Bank, Citibank gave IPO finance of
hundreds of crores of Rupees to a single person
such as Roopalben-Syndicate in the name of tens
of thousands of fictitious applicants/names.   Kar
vy, the Depository, processed tens of thousands
of applications, allotted them shares without
even receiving applications.Investors Grievances
Forum is committed to protect the interest of
Small Investors. The Small Investors demands
justice. Losses incurred by the Small Investors
due to the siphoning off of their shares by these
scamsters be recovered from them. Be returned to
those Small Investors/applicants. Five times
penalties be levied. This may be deposited into
the Investors Education and Protection
Fund.   We want criminal action against the
scamsters. Section 68A of the Companies Act is
very clear and specific. To apply in Public
Issues in a fictitious name is a crime,
punishable with imprisonment up to 5 years. SEBI
and the Government has to initiate criminal
action.   Here is a presentation on the Demat
Scam. We appeal to all to teach a lesson to the
scamster. Let us show the International
Regulators, India, Indian Government, Indian
Regulators also act like the Regulators of the
Developed Countries. Take the issue to the
logical end and get justice to Small Investors.

Criminal Action Demanded
  • Criminal action against Panchals and others for
    opening bogus Demat and Bank Accounts.
  • Companies Act is clear on this under Sub-section
    (1) of Section 68A
  • Any person who
  • a) Makes in a fictitious name an application to a
    Company for acquiring or subscribing for any
    shares therein, or
  • b) Otherwise induces a Company to allot, or
    register any transfer of, shares therein to him,
    or any other person in a fictitious name, shall
    be punishable with imprisonment for a term which
    may extend to five years.
  • As per Sec. 55A of Companies Act, provision of
    68A is to be administered by SEBI. In case of
    listed companies, Sec. 621 authorizes SEBI to
    file complaints for offences under the Companies

Karvy the Culprit
  • All the major scamsters along with Karvy have
    looted the Small Investors.
  • More than 95 bogus fictitious Demat accounts
    have been opened by Karvy DP.
  • Karvy has accepted payment and also refunded the
    amount to the scamsters
  • It is unearthed that Karvy was issuing single
    cheque to Panchals, Sugandh Investment for these
    benami, forged applications.
  • The Syndicate of Karvy, Bharat Overseas Bank,
    investors, Panchals was transferring refunds
    belonging to thousands of bogus applicants with
    help of Electronic Clearing System directly in
    the bank accounts of Panchals Others

Action on Karvy
  • Thousands of dematerialized accounts being opened
    on the same day with the same branch and being
    introduced by the same bank should have alerted
    the DPs at the time of opening of the
    dematerialized accounts.
  • However the fact that DPs failed to exercise even
    this basic due diligence gives rise to a
    suspicion that they have actively colluded with
    the perpetrators. It is a matter of serious
    concern that Karvy-DP has opened such apparently
    benami / fictitious accounts working out to over
    95 (42,056 nos) of the multiple dematerialized
    accounts in relation to IDFC IPO.
