GOI sends Sahara Q Shop complaint to UP Chief Secretary , No action so far
LUCKNOW, In a case possibly not different from Saradha case in West Bengal where both the Central and State government are passing the buck to one another, the complaint filed against Sahara Q shop by social activists Amitabh and Nutan Thakur is also moving between the Center and the State. The Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Government of India sent their complaint dated 06 November 2012 to Jawed Usmani, Chief Secretary, Uttar Pradesh on 30 November asking him to investigate the matter and take appropriate action.
The Ministry of Consumer Affairs also asked the Chief Secretary to send to an action taken report in the matter. So far the UP Government has not initiated any action in this serious matter as is evident from their letter dated 15 April 2013. Amitabh and Nutan had said that complaints were coming about Sahara India collecting money through the so-called Consumer products network, called the Sahara Q Shop so as to keep it away from the regulatory framework of SEBI, hence suitable action under the provisions of law be initiated in the matter to save the innocent investors.
