SEBI slaps Rs10 lakh fine on Earnest Healthcare

Noting the defaults of Earnest Healthcare as repetitive in nature SEBI said the company did not even respond to the charges against it

 
Mumbai: Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has slapped a fine of Rs10 lakh on Earnest Healthcare for failing to redress investors' grievances and submit a status report as specified by the market regulator, reports PTI.
 
"...hereby impose a penalty of Rs10 lakh on the noticee (Earnest Healthcare)...the penalty is commensurate with the default committed by the noticee," SEBI said in its order.
 
The matter relates to way back in 2003, when SEBI through an order had prohibited the company from accessing capital markets for a period of five years for non redressal of investors' complaints. The debarment was completed in 2008.
 
The regulator in April last year had directed the firm to resolve 51 investor grievances pending against it within 15 days from the date of receipt of the letter and submit a status report.
 
However, the company failed to redress the investor complaints within the specified time as well as submit the Action Taken Report (ATR) in the proforma prescribed by SEBI.
 
Thereafter, the regulator in October 2011 had advised Earnest Healthcare to submit ATR as per the proforma detailed in circular dated 25 November 2009 with respect to the complaints.
 
SEBI said the firm had submitted ATR but it was not as per the proforma prescribed by the regulator. Necessary documents required to treat the complaints as redressed were also not submitted, it added.
 
"The noticee failed to redress investor grievances and submit ATR as per the proforma specified by SEBI ...warranting imposition of monetary penalty," the regulator said.
 
Noting the defaults of the company as repetitive in nature SEBI said the company did not even respond to the charges against it.

SEBI will tell police that STOCKGURU is not registred with SEBI and therefore it is NOT in its JURISDICTION to to take action,as we DONT take ACTION on registred brokers how can we take action on non registred ENTITIES such as STOCKGURU.WE AT SEBI ALWAYS SEE NO SCAM,HEAR NO SCAM,AND SPEAK OF NO SCAM as depicted by THREE monkeys of Mahatma Gandhi Father of Nation.All are using name of Mahatma to fill his pocket.
It is a procedure followed IN INDIA to refer case to other authorities to kill time and prolong matter so that aggrieved investors are calmed down.

SBI Group controls about 59% ATMs in India

SBI and its five units have installed 61,500 ATMs, while private sector and foreign banks put together have about 41,800 ATMs and co-operative banks and regional rural banks have 1,150 machines, out of over one lakh ATMs in the country 

 
Mumbai: The National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) has said the banking system has reached a landmark of one lakh automated teller machines (ATMs) at the end of October, reports PTI.
 
The State Bank of India (SBI) Group, comprising country's largest lender SBI and its five subsidiaries, has a network of 61,500 cash vending machines which help it account for a majority 59% share in the ATMs.
 
NPCI, which has been promoted as an umbrella organisation for retail payments by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and banks, said as of October-end the total number of ATMs stood at 1,04,500.
 
The organisation operates the National Financial Switch used for inter-connectivity between banks for ATMs. Also, banks individually report their ATMs in the network section in their quarterly reports.
 
Banks started installing ATMs in the late 1990s and have over time replaced the tedious efforts taken to withdraw cash at a branch, which would have to be done only in the business hours.
 
Many banks have extended the ATM to do other transactions like fund transfer, donations to charities, cheque and cash deposits etc.
 
According to the NPCI, private sector and foreign banks put together have about 41,800 ATMs accounting for 40% of the network, while co-operative banks and regional rural banks have 1,150 machines, representing 1% of the system.
 
Nearly 200 million transactions are processed every month through the NFS, the NPCI statement said, adding 75% of this are simple cash withdrawal transactions.
 
The average ticket size of withdrawals stands at Rs3,300, it added. The balance 25% transactions, NPCI said, are non-financial transactions.
 
All the banks put together have plans to install additionally about one lakh ATMs over a period of next two years, the NPCI said, noting that this will take up the average to 170 ATMs per million population from the current 85.
