nexus of RBI employees stole Rs. 220000 from RBI Bangalore. All the
banks , government treasuries in Karnataka , submit defaced / soiled
currency notes to RBI Bangalore in exchange for good notes. RBI after
collecting such defaced currency notes , sorts out fairly good notes
which can be reissued & burns off the remaining totally defaced
currency notes. All these process is done in a systematic manner.

, orders of court over rides the organisation's internal rules ,
service rules , etc. inspite of lack of evidences, in a whimsical
manner the higher authorities of RBI , fixed some innocents as the
scape goats heaped all charges against them ( against whom they had
personal grudge , dislikes ). RBI repeatedly showed contempt to the
court orders , dismissed the scape goat - ailing old man mr.G.Hariram
from service. RBI snatched away his PF money towards the alleged loss
to the bank , didn't pay his gratuity amount , salary arrears and
finally he was even deprived of the pension. As a result , the old man
has even lost his social prestige, dignity , his family suffered a lot
& he is a mental wreck today.
scape goats away from service ? why CBI didn't conduct polygraph tests
of all the accussed , specifically higher officers of RBI , managers
of RBI office Bangalore ? probably the scape goats were aware of the
crimes master minded by higher ups & didn't co-operate with the higher
ups in their crimes. So, the criminals were afraid that the scape
goats will blurt out truth to the world , fixed non co-operating
innocents themselves as criminals.

mr.G.Hariram came out clean from the court , why RBI has denied his

internal inspection / audits , during domestic enquiry & court
smudged , he has stated some seal marks appears to be so & so. He has
clearly nowhere stated that this seal mark is exactly this , so he
himself is not 100% sure ?
on that day this seal was issued to mr.G.Hariram , isn't it ?
However approver says fraud was there before mid 1977 also. Why no
action has been taken ?

innocent officers over the notes , bundles , bags , etc ?

date , at what stage , by whom crime was committed , isn't it ?
officers they dislike & falsely implicating them ?
original criminals ?
mr.J.Mitra ? why his pension , super annuation benefits were not
picking up only three officers including mr.G.Hariram for legal
prosecution and leaving the majority of probables ?
you didn't even conduct domestic enquiry against them , let alone
legal prosecution ?
more possibilities of rebundled packets getting unnoticed in relaxed

mr.G.Hariram worked in those departments , except a currency officer's
office note dated just on the eve of charge sheet years after the

just to fix mr.G.Hariram ?
departments , but not charge sheeted them why ?
of 40 officers , why you have picked up only mr.G.Hariram , out of
1095 working days , he has worked for only 223 days in those
sections , still those officers who worked for more days in those
sections are not charge sheeted why ? the approver , the management
expert witness , shift registers , V2 registers , Destruction
certificates , Form CD 55 , etc , nobody , no records were able to say
on what date , at what stage , by whom crime took place , also they
were unable to say on what date at what stage crime was committed by
mr.G.Hariram ? is it not futile imagination , cunning ploy of RBI
higher authorities to fix innocent Mr.G.Hariram ?
crime is punching / Cancelled Note Vault , incinerator , where asst
treasurers were joint custodians . they were not enquired & let off
defaced note packets. Where as the management expert witness say
substitution of defaced notes only ? is not there difference between
loss of one number of note & 100 number of notes ?
count notes in each bundles , but they just count the number of
bundles only. Is not there chances of inserted note bundles or bundles
containing less number of notes going unnoticed ? is it not the
failure of statuotary system of work practices ?

The report said the FIU had found at least one case of such suspicious transaction by al-Qaeda every month and shared them with the US investigators.
"The FIU also reports tracking cases similar to that of an OFAC-designated (US Office of Foreign Assets Control) of al-Qaeda element moving money from Europe through Lima and on to India," the report leaked by Wikileaks, a non-profit media organisation dedicated to bringing important information to the public, quoting FIU head Enrique Saldivar disclosed.
"Asked if this al-Qaeda case was the first of its kind or they had seen similar cases before, Saldivar told NASOff that they see about one case a month," the cable said.
The FIU receives and analyses STRs, may request additional information relevant to cases or operations related to money laundering or terrorist financing, provides Financial Intelligence Reports (FIR) to the Public Prosecutor's Office, participates and/or requests joint investigations, and coordinates with foreign FIUs and entities.
"Of the 7,710 suspicious activity reports examined by FIU analysts in 2009, 781 resulted in financial intelligence reports sent to the Public Ministry for further processing and investigation.
"Based on these 781 intelligence reports, the FIU concludes more than 3 billion USD moved illegally through Peru''s financial sector in 2009," it said.
"83 per cent of this amount, according to the FIU, is related to drug trafficking. The other 17 per cent is reportedly related to fiscal fraud, corruption and illegal gun dealing. Currently, 308 of these intelligence reports are at various stages of investigation and prosecution in the legal system as compared to four cases in 2008," the cables read.
According to Saldivar, anti-money laundering efforts in Peru are hindered by several factors.

Corporate fraud is nothing new to india , satyam company is just a
new addition to it. Satyam co was able to commit such a huge fraud &
keep it under wraps for years goes to prove the honesty , integrity of
our public servants , government officials belonging to SEBI , RBI ,
tax dept , pollution control , labour depts. , etc & the honesty of
auditors & company secretaries. Ofcourse , still there are few honest
people in public service , auditing & company secretaryship , but
majority of them are hand in gloves with corporate criminals.
Definitely , this fraud will also be brushed under the carpet after
certain time as other frauds happened , afterall these frauds are the
money spinners for political party funding , mafia , underworld &
other criminal activities.
there is rigorous imprisonment for a pick-pocketer stealing Rs.10.
even the authorities spend thousands of rupees in legally prosecuting
him & the thief spends a year or more as punishment behind bars. Where
as there is no commensurate investigation nor legal prosecution nor
punishment for corporate thieves , evading tax to the tune of crores
of rupees. In contrast, those tax thieves pay a part of that booty to
the ministers & political parties and get crores of rupees tax
exemptions , incentives from the government. Government is rewarding
The tax officials of central & state governments
are hand in glove with these corporate criminals & traders. For a
price, they are helping corporates & traders in evading tax. Most of
the tax officials are wealthy & leading luxurious lifestyles , much
beyond the scope of their legal income. The black money thus generated
every year by tax evasion , is many times more than our total annual
budget allocation. As a result, all our fiscal reforms fail &
inflation is soaring. This black money is the source of illegal
funding of political parties , terrorist outfits & underworld. It is a
greater threat to national unity & integrity.
Both the central government & karnataka state
government have failed to collect the full , actual tax dues from
corporates & traders. As a result , the governments don't have enough
money in their coffers even to provide basic needs like health care ,
education , safe drinking water , etc to the poor & needy. For every
Rs.100 tax evaded , one poor patient is dying without medical care ,
10 poor persons lack education , 100 persons don't get safe drinking
water , 100 persons barely survive on a single piece meal per day , 20
persons starve. Most of The government officials , ministers &
people's representatives who have deliberately failed in their duties
of tax collection & welfare of poor citizens , SHAMELESSLY indulge in
luxurious lifestyle at the expense of poor tax payer . they live in
paltial bungalows , chauffer driven AC cars , all living food expenses
paid by exchequer , dine at 5-star hotels , only drink bottled mineral
water , eat non-vegetarian dishes , drink alcohol sitting before

preached & practiced simple living , vegetarianism & he was teto

Some non government organisations ( NGO) have
formed trusts and under the aegis of those trusts are running
educational institutions , hospitals , community halls , etc , in the
name of providing free / subsidised services like education , health
care , etc to the poor. It is only in record books , they conduct fake
medical camps , self employment training camps . in practice they are
running these educational institutions , hospitals & community halls
as commercial enterprises & collecting huge fees. they are not even
remitting full fees collected to the trust account & swindling the
money. no outsider is allowed to become a member of these NGOs , only
their cronies & their family members are in these trusts.
Numerous NGOs promoted by religious bodies , mutts
are swindling public & government money to the tune of crores of
rupees. Nobody dares to question the heads , pontiffs of these
mutts , as at his feet VVIPs , ministers fall down. These religious

science & technology. More & more MNCs are investing in India. However
due to our skewed , corrupt economic system , lack of accountability
on the part of corporates & public servants – a wide chasm has been
created between the ultra rich & the poor , the fruits of development
has all been usurped by the rich & mighty. This is the basic reason
for growth of black economy , growth of naxalism , terrorism &
underworld in India. As per a recent study by UN organization ,
majority of Indians ie more than 50 crore Indians are barely
sustaining on Rs.13 per day earnings , a whole family depends upon Rs.
13 , they are struggling to get just single meal per day. People are
starving to death , farmers are committing suicides , people are
selling their own children for a bag of grains. Whereas , corporate
biggies , public servants are leading luxurious lifestyles , having
big parties full of drinks , non-veg foods not at their papaa's
expense but at the expense of public exchequer , out of the tax dues ,
loan repayments cheated to the public exchequer.
employment / educational loans by poor for an amount of Rs.5000. if
the loans are not paid in time , rowdies / recovery agents are sent by
banks to collect the amount by muscle power. As a final step , banks
auction-off properties of collateral security to recover it's dues.
Even, the tax authorities mercilessly extract tax dues to the last
penny from the middle class.
overestimate the project feasibility & it's worth and coolly extend
hundreds of crores of rupees loans without matching collateral
security. The banks extend overdraft facilities without matching
collateral securities , to these corporates. When loans are not
repaid, no rowdies are sent by banks. The promoters , directors of
such tainted corporates drain – off the companies resources cunningly
through insider trading , finally making the company sick. Such
companies don't pay taxes , electricity bills , water bills , etc
properly to respective authorities. The authorities are deaf , dumb &
blind to all these actions of such corporates. At the end , banks
write-off such loans as non performing assets (NPA) & file case before
courts for recovery of dues. Even if the properties of collateral
security are auctioned-off dues cann't be fully realized. Finally
public money is swindled . ALL THIS IS POSSIBLE DUE TO THE CONNIVANCE
OF KEY BANK OFFICIALS , TAX OFFICIALS WITH CRIMINAL CORPORATES SINCE
THE INCEPTION OF SUCH COMPANIES . THIS ALSO POSES UNFAIR COMPETITION
TO HONEST CORPORATES. How to stop this ? by making corporate

we have witnessed many scams like harshad Mehta , ketan parekh ,
hawala , etc and more than Rs. 2000000 crore NPAs are on the books of

arrears of corporates to the tune of Rs.85000 crore , why ? read
vijaya Karnataka kannada daily dated 04th January 2007. just look at
this in the backdrop of "QUESTIONS FOR MONEY BY SOME MPs" and "MP

government is always unresponsive , careless towards the sufferings

to order GOI ,
promoters , directors of the corporates personally accountable for all
2. to constitute committees consisting of public persons with powers
to scrutinize & verify all the actions of corporates for insider
trading like – selling products , materials , shares to their sister
concerns at discounted prices or buying products , materials ,
shares from their sister concerns at inflated prices or lending loans
at discount rates to their sister concerns or taking loans from their
sister concerns at high rate of interest or loaning materials ,
machines to their sister concerns , etc.

infocom & tata teleservices were CDMA mobile service providers & have
paid license fee of few crores only equal to landline fees without any
competitive bidding . They were supposed to provide mobile service to
operate like fixed phones within a radius of 40k.m. however they were
providing service like mobile service from one state to another like
GSM mobile service providers. By this act of RIC & TTSL , the GSM
providers who have paid thousands of license fee in competitive
bidding were economically hurt , the dispute went to court. The court
was on the verge of pronouncing it's verdict awarding damages worth Rs.
18000 crore to GSM players & Rs. 3000 crore of license fees with
penalty to GOI. The government announced a unified telecom license
regime with retrospective effect. Thereby, the GOI lost thousands of
crores of rupees & the share holders of GSM players lost thousands of
crores. Onceagain the RIC was charged by PSU bsnl THAT RELIANCE IS RE-
ROUTING INTERNATIONAL CALLS AS LOCAL CALLS & SWINDLING THE GOI. This
time too, GOI bailed it out. during the dispute between ambani

form, people's representatives are bound to raise the questions ,
issues concerning their constituents on their behalf , on the floor of
the house. However the sad part in india even after 58 years of
democracy , is the lobbying is at it's peak. The lobbying is a
gentleman's white collared crook's way of forming favour seeker's
group , creating a corpus to pay lumpsum bribe & influencing decision
The people's representatives are bound to represent their people
first , then their party & party think tanks. India has come to this
sorry state of affairs , widespread corruption , huge black economy &
rampant poverty, all due to inefficient legislations & enforcements.
These think tanks & IAS lobby, consider themselves as most super
brains on earth & gives out suggestions . the present state of affairs
is a barometer of their brilliance. These think tanks & IAS lobby are
the hand maidens of lobbyists / bribers.
- An appeal to honourable prime minister of india & honourable chief
minister of karnataka
In india , since ages certain section of people – dalits , tribals are
being oppressed in the name of caste by forward caste people. The name
sake independence has not changed the lives of dalits & tribals. The
upper caste people were in control of government & economic sector
before independence as well as after independence too. The upper caste
people are now MPs , MLAs & are running businesses . they have framed
rules , laws to suit their ends. They are getting bank loans ,
subsidies , tax cuts , etc , by greasing the palms of those in power –
their own caste men. The reservation policy is just a vote winning
gimmick of forward caste politicians , it is neo divide & rule policy.
Only few dalits with money & contacts have benefitted , by the
reservation policy of government. Majority of them are still
sufferring from utter poverty & social oppression.
Now, due to rapid industrialisation & globalisation a new economic
divide has taken place – rich & poor , haves & have nots. Now,
economically poor are also being oppressed along with dalits. The
forward caste people in government have framed laws to suit their
ends , they have provided concessional priority loans , tax cuts ,
subsidies , etc from the government to corporate sector . The
corporate sector has demanded & got monetary benefits , infrastructure
facilities from the government . however the same corporates , MNCs
are violating statuotary laws & are averse to social welfare measures
of the government . they are averse to provide jobs to dalits ,
tribals & poor , why ? these corporates are bribing the labour , tax
department & other government officials . as a result the government
is loosing tax revenues to the tune of thousands of crores every
year , the government doesn't have money to provide social welfare
measures to common people. The lives of common people are under
the number of common people dying due to starvation , lack of health
care is more than in a war field. The threat to unity & integrity of
india is more from the corporate sector than pakistan or china.
Now, the government of india & other state governments are literally
under corporate control. we have brought to the notice of government
cases of statuotary law violations by various corporate entities ,
till date no action has been taken. Why ? hereby , we once again
offers it's conditional services to the government of india &
karnataka in apprehending corporate criminals , corrupt tax , labour ,
pollution control board offricials. Are you ready sir ????
Moreover, the cases filed by the Enforcement Directorate and in the Special Court do not all pertain to the Indian operations (the Bank's Indian operation itself is significantly large and important, especially after the impact of the global financial crisis). In fact, many of them specifically name a former chairman of the Bank, Rodney Galpin.
He pointed to the multiplicity of acceptable identity documents - for instance, the PAN (permanent account number) card, passport and Aadhaar unique identification (UID) number - and the fact that none of them are interlinked. "It's a real pity for a country which produces some of the best IT talents in the world," he added. Contrast India with the United States, where social security numbers are in place since 1935.
At the level of the regulator - the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) - there is an urgent need to improve the frequency and quality of inspection. More importantly, there is a need to overhaul Know Your Customer (KYC) norms for financial intermediaries such as banks, non-banking financial companies (NBFCs), insurers and mutual funds.
And at the government level, there is a need to speed up Aadhaar - the national unique identification (UID) number project - as it would eliminate the multiplicity of documents.
The central bank's KYC guidelines require banks to collect three documents - photographs, identity proof, and address proof - from customers before they can open an account or get a locker. If a customer has no UID number, the bank has no option but to accept documents such as voter ID, electricity bill, passport, or PAN card.
"The root cause of many of the problems today is the multiplicity of enforcement agencies, array of regulations and variety of documents for the identification of a single person," says Pavan Kumar Vijay, Managing Director of Corporate Professional Group, a corporate advisory firm.
The Cobrapost videos show bankers asking for easily available KYC documents, and, in some cases, even advising customers not to submit a PAN card so they can stay off the tax radar. Bankers say some customers get away with submitting a lease agreement and rent receipts as address proof. "These are the most suspect cases, where the bank should do a ground check or periodically re-check whether the customer still has the same residence or job," says the chairman of a public sector bank.
"The problem is not with the KYC, but its implementation," says M.D. Mallya, who recently retired as Chairman of the state-owned Bank of Baroda. He may be right, as the genuineness of even crucial government-issued documents is not always above quest ion.
According to the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), there were close to 96 million PAN cards as of March 2010, but only 34 million tax returns were filed.
The PAN card is one of the most abused documents. The CAG noted in 2010/11 that big tax evaders spread out their money by opening multiple bank accounts with fake PAN cards. Tackling PAN card fraud is not enough, though. The Income Tax Act allows those who claim not to have a PAN card to fill out Form 60 and say they have no taxable income, or Form 61 to say their income is from agriculture. A Cobrapost video shows a banker allegedly advising an undercover re-porter to fill out Form 60 to avoid detection by tax authorities.
So just by filing Form 60 and without submitting a PAN card, a tax evader can deposit cash of over Rs 50,000 in a bank or post office, no questions asked. According to banking industry sources, the RBI and the finance ministry are investigating cases in which banks have not reported transactions backed by Form 60 or 61 to the government's Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU).
"Nurturing an ethics-based corporate culture, with provisions to claw back performance-based incentives... can help correct the current approach of mobilising fresh business by any means," adds Khandelwal.
The Cobrapost expose shows bankers allegedly marketing insurance products to convert black money into white. Insurance products are profitable, because the bank earns a high first-year commission on the premium. The bank manager could benefit, too: many banks and insurers offer rewards for high sales, such as foreign junkets.
Insurance products are easy to sell. The bank's KYC requirements are sufficient proof for investing any amount in an insurance scheme. A PAN card is not necessary, even though some single-premium policy amounts are as high as Rs 30 lakh. Many banks sell policies that mature after seven years. At that point, nobody can question the source of the money, because income-tax laws do not require banks to keep records for more than seven years.
By law, bank employees have the authority to ask a customer for details of transactions that are not consistent with the customer's profile. The onus is on the bank to ensure that the account is not being used to launder money. Insurance companies, too, are required to report cash transactions of over Rs 10 lakh a month to the FIU.
Following Cobrapost's allegations, the RBI and the Insurance Regulatory Development Authority are investigating KYC violations and the background of customers who have put large sums into singlepremium insurance plans. ICICI Bank's life insurance arm has launched a probe, too.
Some in the industry say the FIU is seeking details of policy holders with high-value single-premium policies. The RBI, too, is investigating high-value transactions. "If there is a series of cash transactions valued at Rs 10 lakh or more in a month, they need to be reported under AML," says a public-sector banker on condition of anonymity. AML refers to anti-money laundering rules.
Banks are required to report demand drafts, mail transfers and travellers' cheques worth Rs 50,000 and more to the RBI. A source in the central bank says: "The investigation will also look at the extent of complacency shown by the top management of these banks."
Some bankers argue that it would be unfair to blame the top management of the three private banks that Cobrapost has named - the country's largest in terms of market capitalisation. ICICI and HDFC have nearly 3,000 branches each, and Axis Bank has close to 2,000. The Cobrapost investigation covered some 50 branches. All three banks have comprehensive codes of conduct for employees. For example, ICICI Bank, with a balance sheet of Rs 5 lakh crore, has a detailed manual outlining due diligence for accepting a customer.
A day after Cobrapost published its investigation, ICICI and HDFC banks appointed audit firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu to carry out an independent forensic enquiry in addition to their own internal investigations into Cobrapost's allegations. The stock market has reacted, too: the banks' stocks have fallen more than the BSE Sensex.
"The RBI may also put the brakes on new branch licences to some banks," says Kashyap Jhaveri, analyst at Emkay Global Financial Services, in a recent report. An analyst who manages the money of foreign institutional investors says the probe could expand to other banks. A Goldman Sachs report notes: "These developments, if proven true, could potentially lead to slower growth across private banks' deposits and business."
The RBI's deadline for a scrutiny of the head office and branches of the three private banks is March 31. The central bank is also studying whether the banks' gold coins and wealth management products could be potential ways to stash black money. RBI Deputy Governor K.C. Chakrabarty has downplayed the expose, saying: "If we find there is a need to further tighten any guidelines, we will do that."
Some in the industry say that Finance Minister Chidambaram's estimate that 46,800 people have taxable income of over Rs 1 crore is baffling, considering the growth of banks' wealth management services and the portfolio management services of mutual funds and brokerages.
In addition to being the government's debt manager, the RBI manages the country's monetary policy, and supervise and regulate banks. "There is a strong case of hiving off the banking supervision from RBI," suggests a banker.
The number of bank branches in the country has grown to 80,000. The RBI has some 20,000 employees, of which one-third are maintenance and technical staff. Some bankers question, however, whether adding layers of people will improve the situation.
Former RBI governor Bimal Jalan says: "We should learn from the current experience and see how we can improve our ethical governance system in implementing the banking guidelines."
There is also the issue of black money - estimated at Rs 10-15 lakh crore - being generated in the first place. It is common knowledge that much of it is stashed in other countries. The Cobrapost sting has highlighted that banks, which are highly regulated, seem to be doing little to bring tax evaders to book at home. It is anyone's guess what goes on in more loosely regulated financial intermediaries such as co-operative banks, NBFCs and credit societies.
