Subrata Roy is in news again. Earlier, he went to jail, and after the focus shifted from him to other topics. But after two years of him on parole, he is in news again. Now, one more petition against him went to the Supreme Court. This petition is by the Indian market regulator. And in the petition, they asked Subrata Roy to pay 626 billion rupees ($8.43 billion) immediately. And if he is not able to do so then cancel his parole.
SEBI came forward and told about the dues of Sahara India Parivar Group and its chief. Sahara’s two companies and the chief Roy have 626 billion rupees as dues. And this amount also includes the interest. Earlier, eight years back, this total amount was very less. Eight years back it was only 257 billion rupees. And now it rose to 626 billion rupees.
In the year 2012, the Supreme Court of India ruled against the company Sahara group. And at that time said that the company raised over $3.5 billion illegally. And also they violated securities laws. At that time SEBI was not able to trace the investors. And Sahara too wasn’t able to pay the dues. After which, Roy was sent to jail. The companies said the money was raised in cash from millions of Indians who could not avail of banking facilities.
Now the company is coming forward to say against it. It is saying, “It is wrong to demand by Sebi.” And the company added that SEBI is asking for more money. And it added 15% interest “mischievously”. Also, they can not pay SEBI because they already paid the investors. So, paying SEBI is not valid.
