QNet: MPID Court says activities of the MLM are ‘not legal’

While granting bail to two accused in the multi-crore QNet multi-level marketing (MLM) fraud case, the special Maharashtra Protection of Interest of Depositors (MPID) Court said the activities of the MLM are not legal. The MPID Court granted bail to Srinivas Rao Vanka, Magaral V Balaji and Aditi Mitra.

"I would also like to mention here that prima-facie the activities of QNet seems to be not legal. The reasons for the same is already discussed in the bail orders of the co-accused. Hence pending the final hearing of the petition before the Supreme Court, they cannot be allowed to continue with the same or similar or like illegal activities, "Justice DP Surana said in an order issued on 30 March 2017.

Based on the decision given by the apex court, the MPID Court granted bail to Vanka, Balaji and Mitra on similar terms and condition as stated by the Supreme Court while giving bail to prime accused Michael Ferreira, the former world billiards champion, and his partner Malcolm Nozer Desai last week.

Requesting the MPID Court to reject the bail applications, Gurupreet Singh Anand, the complainant in the case, stated that the Bombay High Court has held the activities of Q­Net as illegal which was confirmed by the Apex Court and as such, the illegal activities should not be continued.

In his order, the Special Judge of MPID Court stated, "The role of applicants (Vanka, Balaji and Mitra), as regards to Section 3 of the MPID Act is concerned, being Director, Independent Representative (IR) or trainer will be less to the role of Michael Ferreira and Malcolm Desai. So also, when the order of the Apex Court, is very clear that there shall be stay on further proceeding in all the 19 first information reports (FIRs) pending hearing and final disposal of the petition, there is no propriety in keeping the applicants too behind the bars."

Earlier, the Bombay High Court had rejected the anticipatory bail applications of all the accused calling the whole business of QNET as “prima facie illegal business”.

The HC order mentioned "The motto of the company 'sell more, earn more' appears very attractive and innocuous. However, this motto is fully camouflaged. The company stands on a basic statement that people can be fooled. Thus, the true motto is 'sell more earn more' by fooling people. In fact it is a chain where a person is fooled and then he is trained to fool others to earn money. For that purpose, workshops are conducted where study and business material is provided with a jugglery of words, promises and dreams. Thus, the deceit and fraud is camouflaged under the name of e-marketing and business."

"It has very grave and serious impact on the economic status and mental health of the people on a large scale. On considering parameters of section 438 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, I am not inclined to protect the accused. It will not be out of place to mention that such circulation is required to be stopped. It is necessary for the prosecution to take injunctive steps against this business activity, which is prima facie, illegal.”

Even, the Serious Frauds Investigation Office (SFIO) had termed the whole business of the QI GROUP in India as a “threat to the national security” said the whistle blower Gurupreet Anand who submitted the SFIO report in Bombay High Court as well as Supreme Court of India along with other documents and the Supreme Court had dismissed all special leave petitions (SLPs) filed by all the accused ordering them to surrender within seven days.

In February 2014, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) too had registered a case under the prevention of money laundering act (PMLA) against QNet, Vihaan Direct Selling, Ferreira and QNet founder Vijay Eswaran and three other independent representatives (IRs) of the MLM operator.

Gurupreet Singh Anand, a computer consultant from Lokhandawala, Andheri in his first information report (FIR) stated that his wife was duped for Rs30,000 by some people who had introduced themselves as the independent representatives (IRs) of QNet. Anand told the police, “They (IRs) had said that one of the bio-products my wife bought could be used to treat my 12-year-old son's brain-related diseases.”

Here is the order passed by the MPID Court…

Dear Members,

Jai Hind to all. As you are aware I have had fought the QNET SCAM since last 4 years and devoted all these years full time towards taking effort to expose the QNET SCAM because of which millions of innocent people in India are loosing thier hard earned money and due to my efforts the #QNETSCAM had almost come to a stand still.

This fight has had taken a HUGE effort and affected my personal and professional life beyond what can be explained here, though all cases in which I appeared had verdicts coming in favor of the victims of #QNETSCAM

In Bombay High Court and the Supreme Court I have faced the best and most expensive lawyers in India like Mahesh Jhetmalani , Kapil Sibbal, Salman Kurshid , Dushant Dave etc but they could not protect the accused involved in the #QNETSCAM till recently when...

These accused cheated and played FRAUD upon the Supreme Court and obtained an stay order on all proceedings against QNET all over India. It is very very Important for all of us to come together and unite so that this fraud can be exposed and correct facts are brought before the Supreme Court.

To carry forward this fight further I need to move to Delhi and need support from you all without which this fight will come to an end. I request Donations from you all for fighting this #QNETSCAM which is destroying lifes, families and careers and thousands of crores are being laundered out of our country India.

All those who say qnet is genuine, i would be glad if you guys answer these.
1)Why dont you guys say that you are from qnet while introducing yourself to a new comer.
2) Do you really think that your products are really that worth
3)If it is, i know many victims who are cheated, Are you guys ready to buy their products?
4)You know that qnet indian websites are blocked, still you do transaction via global website....dont you have any respect to indian laws?
5)Why do you really think moneylife is against you guys. What news it has fabricated?
6)Is your model sustainable? I vl be glad if you guys can give me the numbers.(At least say the successful people percentage). I being an 'google economist' have come to a conclusion that 85% people will NEVER get money. I dont say this. Maths say this. If you dont believe, do it your self.
6)Do you guys know the reason why SC gave bail? Dont you guys think that SC will not take any input from those 19 FIRs, Bombay HC order and SFIO report?
7) Always you guys say that 'Dont assume before knowing anything'. Then why dont you guys reveal what is our wrong assumption.

You being so google economists stop preaching dining etiquites to millions who starve .You live a cushy life ,so you continue doing so ,we'll continue doing what we do and what we are good at.Its an open market and a land of free enterprise ,we dont rob on gun point rather we believe in the art of convincing people to join hands with us.Even education system has drop outs even after paying admission fees ,tell me how many of you morons dare to lodge a complaint in consumer court after paying the fees and dropping out.There is difference between convincing and duping/coning gullibles.Hope you understand.

Yes, you are absolutely correct,there are millions who are startving paying EMIs to banks, slashing relations with thier friend/relatives because of the only one factor 'QNET'. I am okay that i am a google economist, but dont you have any regards for the laws of the country.Your Questnet and GoldQuest which were working on the similar model got banned.How Qnet is different from those Companys.Bombay HC order says you guys are deciet. MPID court says you guys are not legal.SFIO says your business is threat.Delhi HC didnt quash the FIR.What is your take on all these??

Its direct selling as you guys claim.So the prospect should like your products.Why do have to 'convince' someone to like your products?

You have commneted about education system.DO you have any idea about the dropout rates in indai?The drop rate is 4.3% for schools.(As per ministry of HRD). As you go higher classes, this dop out rate even decreases.And in so called genuine business of QNET, More than 80% can never get money.

I know untill now,49 persons got arrested albeit many are on bail. Continue your business of deciet and fraud. God might bless you with no 50.

1) Myself went to a session of Qnet. It was my Brother in law who called me for this. They were giving oral presentation. They were using all the big fancy words like crores, villas,my mere job. They were saying it as a 'business oppurtunity' which is very wrong. I somehow escaped from that. Later my BIL got registered three people from my village sying its an investement. All were relatives. And none of them are educated.He just showed some dreams of becoming crorepatis to the inncocent village people. Now none of them talk to my BIL including me. Wait !! I have put the same thing on FB. i got 3 pings saying they too were cheated. They naarated almost the same script which happens with everyone. Do you say this is ethical?
2)Haha, products are worth?? Can you please explain the products and their advantages over their competitors in economicl and utility terms. Its a request. You cannot refrain from answering this because products are genesis of this business as qnet claims.
3)Cheating is a genuine art in which many Qnet IRs have passed in distinction. I exclude you since you claim that you say, you are from qnet. Might you be clean, but dont endorse all other QNET IRS. I have 10s of victims. Now coming to your car analogy, you are absolutely correct. But how can someone sell a Chi Pedant,some beuaty products at an exaggerating prices when he himself found those are not worth that money?
4)I never know this www.qnetstore,net existed. Thanks for this.If its a indian domain,suitable action will be taken similar to other qnet indian websites.By the way you are yet to answer http://www.qnetindia.in and http://www.qnet.net/ are blocked.
6)Ok, i accept that that moneylife is against you and all the stories it tell are fabricted. How about umpteen number of complaints on Quora,complaintboard forum etc...Are these fabricated too?
6)Share Market has transparency. If people lose money, they dont cry foul.They accept it. Had qnet too transparent, then there wouldnt be such hue and cry against it.
7)Yes SC gave bail, not guilty free. Had they been guilty free, their passports wouldn't been confiscated? Just wait few more months. Tell me one thing. What will be your opinion if SC says Qnet is a illegal company.Are you ready to give your money back?
8) You say we cannot do anything? :) Haha..unforunately every court where the investigation have started said you guys are wrong. MPID court, Bombay HC, ....Mind you, Delhi high court too didnt quash the FIR. .Dont assume that SC will not take a cognizance of all these.

ATMs, Credit, debit cards set to disappear: Niti Aayog CEO
With India embracing applications of technologies at an accelerated pace, digital transactions will be done through mobile wallets and biometric modes and credit and debit cards as also ATMs were set to disappear, Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant has said.
 
"Technology will be a key driver of India's growth," Kant said while launching the Trade and Investment Facilitation Services (TIFS) of the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI).
 
"Physical banking in India is almost dead and it is adopting pervasive technologies with such an accelerated pace that in next three to four years, the digital transactions would move through mobile wallet and biometric modes," he said. "Credit cards, debit cards and ATMs will disappear."
 
Kant said that India was growing 7.6% annually in the midst of a very barren barren economic landscape across the world.
 
"The population in America and Europe will keep getting older while that of India will keep getting younger," he said.
 
In terms of ease of doing business, he said that in the last year "we scrapped 1200 laws".
 
Stating that India was larger than 24 European countries, Kant said that states should appear as champions of growth.
 
He declared that India would continue to globalise and dismantle rules and regulations that adversely affected inbound investments. It would also create conditions for expansion of its economy.
 
"Despite (US President Donald) Trump talking of protectionism (of US economy), there is no talk of protectionism here," the Niti Aayaog CEO said.
 
"India believes in globalisation and it will continue to globalise and shall never talk of protectionism. As a result, it will emerge as an economy that would attract investments and growth and make India a hub of economic engagements par excellence." 
 
Stating that there is energy and dynamism in the young start-up sector, he said that India has become the centre of innovation in many ways.
 
"Around 1500 companies have located their innovation centres in Hyderabad and Bangalore... India is the centre of frugal engineering." 
 
Kant also said India would see a lot of urbanisation in the times to come and technology would play a key role in this..
 
Speaking on the occasion, Amar Sinha, Secretary (Economic Relations) in the Ministry of External Affairs, said that it was healthy sign that states were competing with each other in terms of growth.
 
But he advised Indian industries to look outside as there were huge opportunities lying there.
 
"There are new opportunities in Africa and the Gulf," he said, adding that India's focus would be on energy and food security and manufacturing.
 
Canadian High Commissioner to India Nadir Patel, who was also present, said that India-Canada bilateral ties were at the highest point. 
 
He attributed this to Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Justin Trudeau "connecting well" with each other.
 
But he lamented that two-way trade between India and Canada stood at only $8 billion and said that this has to increase.
 
US Acting Deputy Chief de Mission George N. Sibley said that India-US cooperation would help the whole world.
 
"We have held two government-to-government strategic commercial dialogues," Sibley said. "We consider the prosperity of India is in our national interest."
 
PHDCCI President Gopal Jiwarajka said that the newly launched TIFS would provide a valuable and qualitative aid to international investment in India.
 
He said that TIFS would provide a secure and personalised single entry point to all trade and investment related information in the Indian economy, which has the potential to become a $100-billion investment destination by 2022.

I think that being in the Niti Aayog or Planning Commission (mindsets don't change, even if names do), these guys confuse plans with reality. Mr Kant should note that, "when ignorance is bliss, it is foolish to be wise". Let him get out of his air conditioned cabin, walk on the streets in India without security, make this statement and see the results for himself.

IDBI Bank employees to strike work on April 12
Around 15,000 IDBI Bank employees would strike work on April 12, demanding a wage revision, the All India Bank Employees' Association (AIBEA) announced on Saturday.
 
In a circular to its members, the AIBEA said the wage revision settlement in IDBI Bank for employees and officers is due from November 2012.
 
"The government and the management (of IDBI Bank) are dilly-dallying and delaying the settlement with a view to frustrate the employees and officers and to force them to accept to lesser wage revision," AIBEA added in its circular.

I agree. Consumer users, Employees and Share holders , all are awry of this Government owned bank with minority share holding of the public. Better it closes down or merges with the SBI.
