About the 1992 scam-Harshad Mehta Scam

Harshad Mehta Scam 1992The violations in securities transactions of the banks and financial companies were detected in the second quarter of 1992. The volume and involvement of individuals and institutions were diverse and surprising. That includes financial firms, foreign banks, public/private sector companies, major stock exchanges, brokers, and senior staff.

Stockbrokers want to borrow money to get to the market. Strict regulations by the Reserve Bank of India restricted them from lending from banks, which were the cheapest sources of finance. Brokers have found alternative solutions based on government securities, colluding with banks, circumventing the rules of the Reserve Bank of India, managing the bank funds, and transferring them to the stock market.

Brokers and banks were supported by PSUs, which were looking for ways to allocate their temporary surplus. In violation of this rule, PSU began taking positions in the securities market through PMS schemes by banks. That wall of money promoted the large-scale stock speculation between April 1991 and May 1992, which almost tripled BSE Sensex.

Condition of Harshad Mehta’s Family

Harshad Mehta Scam 1992When Harshad died in police custody in 2001, his family participated in a series of court battles. After 27 years, the Income Tax tribunal scrapped almost the entire tax demand of ₹2.014 crores on late Harshad Mehta, his brother Ashwin and his wife Jyoti in February 2019.

In the same year, his wife Jyoti also won a lawsuit against the federal bank and stockbroker Kishore Janani. Jyoti was entitled to receive the total amount with an interest of 18%.

Harshad’s brother fought several cases on his own and paid the bank about 17 billion rupees to clear his brother’s name. The case against Harshad was lifted shortly after his death in 2001, but Ashwin continued the judicial battle until 2018 when the special court acquitted him in duping the State Bank of India.

    We bought an apartment in Bangalore recently and Gangadhar made the entire process easy and seamless. Our experience with Gangadhar was outstanding and he took care of all the requirements for the property transfer end to end in a compressed timeframe. Gangadhar was patient, provided good advice and listened to all our requirements. He went above and beyond to help with a variety of other matters as well. I would highly recommend Gangadhar and his team.
