Govt to tighten vigil on money transfer bureaux

The new norms would entail these entities to report even small transactions in the range of Rs10,000-Rs20,000 to both international and domestic destinations in the form of Suspicious Transaction Reports and Cash Transaction Reports to agencies like the Financial Intelligence Unit and the Income Tax department

New Delhi: The government is mulling to tighten reporting norms for international payment gateways and money transfer agencies after some transactions in small tranches of few thousand rupees were reported to be suspicious by law enforcement agencies, reports PTI.

The security agencies have expressed fears that such outlets were being used by militants for money transfers involving small amounts, sources said.

The new norms would entail these entities to report even small transactions in the range of Rs10,000-Rs20,000 to both international and domestic destinations in the form of Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs) and Cash Transaction Reports (CTRs) to agencies like the Financial Intelligence Unit and the Income Tax department.

The move follows a warning by intelligence agencies that militant groups were getting money in small amounts through foreign exchange bureaux, which have come up in every corner of the country.

The security agencies in their successive reports to the finance ministry have raised serious concerns over mushrooming of money transfer agencies, including some international players, who have their agents in various places.

Though Reserve Bank of India (RBI) officials said that permission had been given to companies to have agents and sub-agents like banks, post offices and important financial institutions, they were unable to give an explanation when questions were raised about the appointment of ‘sub-sub agents’ like grocery shop owners and travel agents by these firms.

Security agencies are apprehensive that militants were using such bureaux for bringing in money from abroad in small amounts to avoid detection and there was no mechanism in place to seek information from these exchanges and that there was no proper compilation of records.

Weakness in share prices to persist: Wednesday Closing Report

Nifty to find support at 5,500

The market today fell on high volumes, despite the fact that the US market was sharply up yesterday and Asian markets were in the green.

Weak corporate earnings and a stock-specific event led the benchmarks lower today. This apart, the comment by finance minister Pranab Mukherjee that inflation would remain high till December also weighed heavy on investor sentiment.

The market opened higher on a positive trend in the Asian markets this morning, ignited by hopes that the US debt impasse will end soon. The Nifty opened at 5,642, up 28 points from its previous close, and the Sensex added 102 points to start at 18,756. Realty, consumer durables, banking and auto sectors led early gains and the market touched its intra-day high in initial trade as the Nifty rose to 5,645 and the Sensex touched 18,766.

Lower-than-expected results by IT major Wipro pulled the stock down by over 3% in morning trade and this hurt the BSE IT index which was the top sectoral loser. The market gradually drifted into negative terrain in the mid-morning session, on selling pressure in the heavyweights.

The indices bounced back into the positive, but the gains were short-lived, as the market dropped southwards in noon trade following the finance minister’s warning on inflation. Mr Mukherjee said the rate of price rise would continue to be high between August and December, on higher prices of manufactured goods and fuel. This caused worry among investors that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) could hike rates once again at its policy meeting next week in a bid to rein in prices.

The market fell to the day’s low in the late session, after news that a large investor offloaded nearly half his stake in drug maker Lupin. The investor’s entire stake was valued at over Rs300 crore. At the day’s low, the Nifty lost 90 points from the day’s high to 5,555, and the Sensex fell to 18,474, down 292 points from its intra-day high. However, the market closed off the lows, the Nifty at 5,567, down 47 points, and the Sensex settled at 18,502, a decline of 151 points.

The advance-decline ratio on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) was a negative 592:1139.

In the broader markets, the BSE Mid-cap index tanked 0.88% and the BSE Small-cap index declined 0.36%.

Apart from the BSE Fast Moving Consumer Goods index (up 0.24%), all other sectoral gauges ended in the negative. The top losers were BSE Power (down 1.73%), BSE Healthcare (down 1.71%), BSE Capital Goods (down 1.45%), BSE Auto (down 1.42%) and BSE Bankex (down 1.34%).

DLF (up 1.63%), ITC (up 0.93%) and Maruti Suzuki (up 0.09%) were the top Sensex gainers. The losers were led by Wipro (down 3.95%), Hindalco Industries (down 2.71%), Jaiprakash Associates (down 2.51%), Tata Power (down 1.98%) and Hero Honda (down 1.90%).

The major Nifty gainers were DLF (up 1.31%), Siemens (up 0.71%), ITC (up 0.69%), Hindustan Unilever (up 0.56%) and Infosys (up 0.17%). The top losers on the index were Wipro (down 4.14%), Hindalco (down 3.41%), Ranbaxy (down 2.59%), Jaiprakash Associates (down 2.51%) and Kotak Bank (down 2.31%).

Among the first quarter results announced today, Wipro, Polaris Software and RCF posted weak numbers, setting off concerns over Q1 earnings estimates.

Markets in Asia, with the exception of the Shanghai stock market, ended higher on optimism that the US will avoid a debt default. Encouraging earnings reports from IBM and Apple also supported technology stocks in South Korea with LG Display, Samsung SDI and Samsung Electronics settling higher.

The Hang Seng rose 0.46%, the Jakarta Composite gained 0.68%, the KLSE Composite advanced 0.45%, the Nikkei 225 surged 1.17%, the Straits Times climbed 0.98%, the Seoul Composite advanced 1.16% and the Taiwan Weighted jumped 2.13%. On the other hand, the Shanghai Composite lost 0.10%.

Back home, on Tuesday, foreign institutional investors were net buyers of stocks worth Rs293.29 crore. Domestic institutional investors, on the other hand, were net sellers of equities worth Rs226.92 crore.

Tata Motors today said that it would consider setting up manufacturing facilities in various overseas countries as it looks to expand its global presence. In its annual report for 2010-11, the company said it will also introduce more fuel efficient products and market those in both domestic and export destinations.

The home-grown auto major, however, did not provide any details regarding any possible new overseas location. The company’s stock declined 1.62% to settle at Rs968.05 on the NSE.

State-run mining giant Coal India has blamed early rains and inclement weather in the eastern region for it not being able to achieve the 98.7 million tonnes (MT) target in the first quarter. Already plagued by a plethora of problems like delay in green clearances for its projects that has hurt production in the face of an ever-widening demand-supply gap, the Maharatna company missed the April-June target by 2.4 MT. Coal India fell 0.64% to Rs367.50 on the NSE.

Gammon Infrastructure Projects has achieved the financial closure of the Paradip Iron Ore Terminal Project, which envisages construction and equipping of a berth to handle an annual throughput of 10 million tonnes of iron ore. The company has a 31% equity stake in Blue Water Iron Ore Terminal, the special purpose vehicle implementing the project. Gammon Infra rose 1.25% to Rs16.20 on the NSE.

Speak Asia continues with its ‘golmaal’ answers

Serious investigations are going on against Speak Asia across the country, but the company chooses to portray itself as a victim, in an attempt to gain sympathy and more time from its agents who eagerly await their dues totalling over Rs1,900 crore

Speak Asia Online Pte Ltd (SAOL), which claimed to be 'Asia's largest online survey group' and has now changed its tagline from 'Asia's leading integrated market services agency' to 'Asia's largest community of sovereign consumers', is continuing to provide misleading answers on its website even today. In the meantime, Speak Asia has been allowed a meeting with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to explain its position by the Bombay High Court.

In an order dated 14th July, a bench of judges Dr DY Chandrachud and Anoop V Mohta, said, "We are of the view that the interference of this court is not warranted. However, in the interest of fairness, an opportunity should be granted to the petitioners (Speak Asia) to submit a representation to the Reserve Bank." The High Court, however, made it clear that even after the Speak Asia representation is made, it expects the RBI to take a decision in accordance with the law.

Disposing the petition filed by Speak Asia, the High Court said, "The bank (RBI) is legitimately entitled to protect the integrity of the financial set up, pending an investigation. Neither an investigation nor the directions issued by the Reserve Bank to facilitate it should be obstructed or curtailed. The bank has in our view acted within its statutory power to caution against remittances abroad in the case at hand."

According to the High Court order, Speak Asia sent a letter to the RBI requesting an appointment on 17th May to which the central bank replied on 16th June seeking a disclosure of information. Speak Asia responded on 20th June, but the matter appears to have rested there, the order said.

Now let's see how Speak Asia has played the High Court verdict to its favour. In an pop-up message to its agents (we are providing an image of the page below as there is no assurance that it will remain on the company's site after publishing this article), Speak Asia has claimed that it has received some 'moral vindication' from the High Court order.

It said, "We have got some moral vindication (for instance) the High Court of Hyderabad restrained harassment or arrest of any official or employee of our company against a complaint made by an NGO (criminal petition 5626/2011). The High Court in Mumbai directed the Reserve Bank of India to give us a hearing to understand our business model 'expeditiously' (writ petition (L) no. 1365/2011 - SAOL & Others vs Reserve Bank of India)."

The pop-up message tries to create a divide between 'them' and 'us', where 'us' is the multi-level marketing (MLM) company and 'them' is everyone else not associated with it. The message reads: "They are a product of misguided thinking, unbridled envy, and a desire to destroy what they cannot build. They are a set of people with deadly intent. They are the opportunity deniers. They are supported, cheered on and encouraged by certain vested interests like our competitors, some corrupt politicians and unscrupulous NGOs who have jumped into the fray to take advantage of our vulnerability."

Now, let us take a look at the company's method to misguide (aka golmaal) its panellists and other gullible people. On the frequently asked questions (FAQs) page (see the image below), Speak Asia says, "RBI, SEBI, Ministry of Corporate Affairs and PMO gave clearance to SpeakAsiaOnline?" For a common reader and Speak Asia panellist, it appears as if the company has already received clearances from these regulators and authorities. However, the reality is completely different.

In answer to this apparent question, the company says, "It has come to the notice of the company through its media sources that because of the negative campaign initiated by some organisations, that RBI, SEBI, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs and PMO initiated inquiry against the working of the company. However, till date SAOL has not been contacted by any of the government departments."


 

Although, Speak Asia forgot to mention the Income-Tax, Enforcement Directorate and Service Tax inquiries, the High Court order does mention these agencies. The order said, "It has been submitted that at present investigations are being conducted by the Directorate of Enforcement, the Registrar of Companies and by the law enforcing authorities in several states in respect of the activities of the petitioners (Speak Asia)."

Speak Asia has been insisting that the freeze on bank accounts of its distributors and agents (since the company neither has, nor operates any bank account under its name) was placed by the RBI. However, the central bank clarified, and the High Court accepted, that the debit freeze was placed by the respective banks on account of the investigations being conducted by the service tax and income-tax departments.

Last week, the division bench of Justice Ranjana Desai and Justice RV More remarked that the police should create a system to prevent the repetition of frauds like CU Marketing and City Limouzine. Hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by Andheri resident Rajmani Shukla against Speak Asia, the High Court noted that “Having perused the petition, we feel that another scam is in the offing."

In the meantime, Speak Asia has launched its much-talked about product-based website and continues with promises to pay its agents as soon as possible. Before concluding, let us look at the dues Speak Asia owes to its panellists since 13th May 2011, when the bank accounts were frozen. Speak Asia needs to pay out Rs190 crore every week to its 19 lakh panellists @ Rs1,000 each. It has not paid a single paisa in the past 10 weeks, and therefore would have to pay Rs1,900 crore to its panellist as of now.

For the sake of comparison, Infosys, one of the country's most reputed IT firms,  earned Rs1,722 crore as first quarter profits on a turnover of Rs7,485 crore. This means that Infosys can share the profit of Rs1,722 among its investors, if decided. How and when Speak Asia would be able to pay such a huge amount to its agents is definitely a survey question worth five hundred rupees!

Bangalore based Unipay2U (Unigroup: Unipay2U, Visarev (Unigateway2U, Unigold2U) - Scam of Rs. 35,000 Crores approximately, might be even more than that, so surprise to see moneylife hasn't given any information regarding that company.
Owner: James @ Mugu (Actual Name: Mugunthan Gnanam / Gangam) a malaysian resident now absconded, Govt. not taking any action.
Also one company called Way2Life (WealthLine), Chennai based has looted Rs. 5,000 - 10,000 Crores, and vanished,
Owner: Chithara Kumar, tamilian now believe to be residing in Canada along with his family.
I'm having just a small list of companies around 276 MLM companies which are operating in India which all has MCA, ROC registration, even ISO also, all have cheated & ran away and still companies keep on coming & keep on closing. what hell this govt. is doing i can't understand? which country we are living in? I don't think in no other country this kind of scam would have happened except india..!
Compare to all other scams even Speakasia's, other companies scams are too big; i will ask moneylife to turn your attention towards other companies also, speakasia is having consumer power which i have not seen in any other company in my life, let us see how govt. handles this company panelists. This number is too big, govt. has to do something for them. Rest of the companies in the market collects money in the name of investment & also watching advertisements & doing surveys for which you are paid they tells.. huh, until what time they'll run the show! one day they are closing & running away na, why govt. is not taking any step remains a big question??

Speak Asia - Investors Confused and worried

One of Kerala’s leading News Paper quoting from some investors in Kerala reports that the investors were confused as the Singapore based Online Networking Marketing Company has broke down. The report says that the investors are confused as to how to take legal action against the online survey company as they have got only a user name and a password. The investors were not provided with any written documents by the online survey company.

The report further says that Speak Asia cheated the customers by making them believe that they were conducting surveys for big companies. An investor had to pay Rs. 11000/= for membership. If the membership is taken they were given two objective type questionnaires in each weak. If the investor could answer at least five answers correctly then the company would give them 10 dollars. The company made them believe that within a year their investment would be doubled 4 times by the minimum. They would also be given 1000 rupees each for enrolling other investors.

How does MoneyLife stand vindicated? Any one can file an FIR and get someone arrested, only when charges are proved then the detractors have won. Hope you are aware of the saying " Innocent until proven guilty".

Don't go on a witch hunt which will hurt a lot of innocent investors, try to resolve and help the people who are enmeshed in this affair.

Anybody can pull others down, those who help people to rise above their troubles are the true heroes and socially conscious people.

Suzy....just when I was wondering where all the souls from SAOL vanished, you appeared here. Good grace and face saving tactic. But dear, by saying others 'chor' does not absolve you from the grand theft. SAOL and NMart both are cheaters and multi-crore frauds.
If filing an FIR and getting arrested someone is so easy, why don't you try it out on some media people who according to your knowledge had destroyed a "very good, and huge money machine, that was giving easy moolah"? Try it out and then comment. FYI....its not easy to file an FIR, check it in your neighbouring police station, if at all you are from India. I dont know the procedures of Singapore.

Manoj.. I did not start these issues.. we were getting paid on time every time.. maybe someone powerful was not paid off.. easy for them to do anything in our Mahan India. What I have seen is that TRPs and Publicity are the Kings. God help those trying to earn a little bit more for their families without paying the haftas required.... anyway I am from India..and what needs to be done to file complaints and FIRs with the police is known by almost everyone..especially those in power or who know someone in power or with influence..... hence the Lokpal Bill

Dear Mr. Govindan,
I appreciate your fight against chain MLM companies, here is the information for you to take action against this particular company called NMart Retails., kindly take immediate action.

I'll send my important findings later based on your work, but http://www.moneylife.in/gotquestion_disp... has information in your site itself..

I've taken this source from:

NMart is one of the biggest indigenous frauds

I appreciate your struggle against MLM is good and nice. Here is the MLM, NMart fraud.
The chairman of NMart is Mr.Gopal Shekhawat, chairman of Asia Region of Internatinonal Human Rights Association.
The membership of this human rights association is available for Rs 5000, keeping this label this NMart is cheating people.,
Being chairman of IHR Association, he is cheating people with fake promises.
http://www.ihra.co.in
http://ihra.co.in/upload/index.php?mod=a...
NMart is fooling people.
We joined NMart without knowing this long term long fraud. They said that they would give Rs. 220/- vouchers for redemption at NMart stores for getting products, as of now it is going well and good. They said that they will give Rs 11,000 as royalty bonus and for that they would send bonds for Rs 11,000/- to all upline members.
But for many they stopped sending bonds, what is the guarantee for money, In india MLM is not legal I know, but, at least if we buy food from a small road-side hotel they give a bill on a paper, but, what about this company.
Many lakhs have not received the bond or agreement form the company, for 11,000.
Now when we ask they say that there is scarcity of bonds with government. Ok, we agree. The company has to give an agreement on a bond paper but the customer care says that they will pay 11000 after 4 years.
Moreover, the company is asking us to take printout of the agreement form from their website.
How will a printout from a website be a legal document?”
Whatever cyber law is applied it is not valid in a court of law,
How is it legally valid what we have taken from the Net, it is not valid as anyone can make modifications from the Net.
Why can't the company send printed agreement of the promised Rs 11000 and next the company made an advertisement in the website http://www.nmart.co.in saying that the associate who joined the company before March 31 will get Rs. 11000 at the end of 4 years and no compulsory purchase is needed.
In the agreement what they put in the Net is like this:
7. Independent Business Associate who has a purchase account of less than 48 months will not get loyalty bonus.
Actually the company got 42,000 joinings in a single day on March 31 as they gave an offer saying that no need of purchase for an associate who has joined before March 31, others have to purchase products worth 72,000/- within 4 years for getting this bonus of 11,000.
Now they changed their promise and they print in the e-agreement in the website of associate login saying that “Independent Business Associate who has a purchase account of less than 48 months will not get Loyalty bonus.
Is this not a cheating?

Cheating of NMart as of now..

1 .Promised that they will pay Rs 11000 without purchase of products in NMart for associates who joined in January 2011 to March 31, 2011. But they say that each associate has to purchase products if they have a mall of NMart within 20 km radius, but, now they say in clause No. 7. Independent Business Associate who has a purchase account of less than 48 months will not get Loyalty bonus”
2. Next fake is that they printed vouchers and gave it for 1 year out of 4 years , for purchases of 220/- worth products, now they say that this coupons will stand cancelled and asking associates to upload photos in website and login and take a printout of the voucher in website.
One question how many people will have knowledge of net and computers, many might have joined by force, emotional joining, out of pressure, for pleasing a friend etc. They don’t remember their password, login, details, cell number to enter in the time of registration in NMart, but, now how can they log in and get a printout form the site,
Many people who joined them in NMart died, transferred, shifted etc. Who will have the password and contacts of the associates, how can this poor associate take a printout and get Rs 220 products.
Many poor Indians don’t know net and computers etc.
3. They said they will give a smart card, loyalty card for transaction they have not sent it till date. It is doubtful they send in future.

4. They said that they will get repurchase income for associates, that is, if associates under a joined person, who have a 20 layer people , who are called down line, if the down line purchase products , the up line will get commission on products as this manner
16 , 25, 50 and 1 percent commission.
But till today this amount is not counted. Is this not cheating?
5. They promised big gifts, but it is a doubtful they are giving or not.Only few that is in 10 percent will earn money in MLM, that is, once food is poison for others.
Have a look at the tricky agreement put in their website of the login of associates

Associate to create the online
purchase account immediately then only NEWLOOK MULTITRADE recognize the details
according to the online purchase account hence NEWLOOK MULTITRADE will not be
liable for any loss of bonus, income or commission due to the late creation of online

Don't be so childish. I have no connection whatsoever with Moneylife.

many people believe that Speak Asia is a money chain company. Why? Because of the simple reason that they do not sell any product. Speak Asians also admit that problem with speak Asia is that it looks like money chain company. Bu they argue that it is different. How is it different? Speak Asians will never answer this question.

Mr. Govindan,
I think it might not be, because their motive is different, we should not tell anything until Govt of India along (ROC, MCA, RBI & ED) CBCID releases it's final report about that company, if they come with clearance surely i'll join them & give my support, in my point of view the money collected by them in india is very less compare to that of money given to all their customers (panelists), the difference is huge, they have put their own money in huge amount, that calculation & all i did already, even if they give back the pending amount with all struggle surely they'll be the company here to stay forever, that was my simple answer, the concept of network marketing & affiliate marketing are totally different, both are different! One person has rightly commented about the difference, just see that person's comments below his name, i think he was swaminathan, in network marketing only 5% of people succeeds whereas 95% people fails because the system was like that, bitter truth is that particular company will be running only in the failures of many customers, not from the success of many people, that was 100% true whereas here in speak asia it was totally different, there's no failures, that means people will get what they expect or what they thinks until company itself stops to give to that person, you people telling company will stop giving one day and run-away, by seeing the past experience you are telling that, but for that now only govt. has started to take initiative in seeing company's background before it starts its operation in india, it will remove all fraudulant companies if really they came with the intention of doing frauds, govt. will probe / investigate their whereabouts, their background which is very important, see the following link which came in Business Standarad

http://www.business-standard.com/india/n...

So, until Govt. releases the probe or investigation reports people like you or moneylife or BJP or NMart or RMP or any company, corporate & political party should not comment like this! That was my Point! I'm also totally against to MLM & chain business. Problem with speak asia is the business model looks identical like money chain but it is not! Just do your research again..!

Hello Venkat, the not-required Indian...
There is a proverb which says, "Nipping a poisionous flower when it's still a bud so it can't grow." Whatever you said would have made sense only if your money swindling company would have respeceted the law of the land and would have got itself at least registered last year. (dont give me the s**t that it is going to get registered now). So keep your crocodile tears for yourself and wait till eternity that one day they will pay convert your RP in real paisa. til then RIP..

Hello Sanjeev Ganna, useless Indian...
What nonsense you are talking, are you fool? i'm not supporting speakasia here, just asking to not tell anything against them until govt. gives final report, wait for that day, then talk, but you are talking full of nonsense blaming me..
You are telling.. "Money swindling company not respected the law of the land..!"
Let Govt. tells that & even if they have not respected the law of the land whatever penalty is there let them pay to the govt. If govt. accepts them again lets talk about that, until then you don't talk s**t, who is leaving crocodile tears here, why i want to do that, don't pull my legs idiot, who are you? paid by b*****s, talk after the judgement..!
