Jignesh Shah can breathe a sigh of relief. The founder of Financial Technologies India Ltd (FTIL), now 63 Moons, would have been pleased to see the Press Release of the Mumbai Economic Offence Wing (EOW) which stated that it has filed a charge sheet against 63 (27 individuals and 36 companies) in Case No. 89/2013, (NSEL Case). NSEL stands for National Spot Exchange Limited. A copy of the Press Release is attached at the end.
The chargesheet includes statements of 509 witnesses and details of 509 bank accounts. The chargesheet consists of 28,337 pages and is 22 gigabytes in size! A massive effort, by the EOW.
NSEL crisis was a manufactured one – an attempt by the C-Company to ensure that only one Stock Exchange, the National Stock Exchange (NSE) be viable in the country. Readers can read my book on this. The mindless pursuit of Shah, decimation of a technological empire that he built using the FTIL crucible will make your blood boil.
Some of the prominent names in the chargesheet are Anand Rathi, Geojit and India Infoline (see below).

It, therefore, comes as no surprise that Anand Rathi Wealth Services has withdrawn its Initial Public Offering (IPO). The cleansing of Aegean stables? What about the 800-pound gorilla in the room, the NSE? None of the 14-accused in the Co-location scam has been indicted!
NSE and the Co-location scam
NSE wants to do an Initial Public Offering. Some estimate that NSE may be worth close to Rs. 80,000 crores ($12 billion at Rs.65 to a USD). About $4 billion of this money (or one-third) is owned by FDI/ FIIs and is going to be the in the hands of the secret investors whose identity is yet to be established. If it is proved that any of it belongs to a politician or a bureaucrat of India, then that is really people’s money unless they can prove it otherwise. The minions of C-Company have managed to keep Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) from handing down any indictments to the 14-accused executives of NSE. In my opinion, these crooks should be put away in jail and the key thrown away. Under their watch they allowed a select few to plunder the wealth of many a shareholder, who cannot even see that he/ she is being robbed.
SEBI, are you listening?
