20 PACL CASE  In just over 30 years, Nirmal Singh Bhangoo, the man behind Pearls Agrotech Corporation Limited (“PACL”) who use to sell milk near Attari border in Punjab became the owner of 1.83 lakh acres of land around the country.  A charismatic business man who milked small investors to make Pearl(s) and always kept his investors satisfied. 20

21  In its biggest-ever crackdown on a large-scale money pooling scheme estimated at nearly Rs. 50,000 crore (twice the amount to be recover from SAHARA group), regulator SEBI has ordered PACL to refund investors within three months and wind up operations.  SEBI had found PACL violating Collective Investment Scheme Regulations by mobilizing the money without being registered with the regulator, SEBI.  Besides, closure of PACL operations, SEBI is initiating further proceedings against PACL and its nine promoters and directors for fraudulent and unfair trade practices, as also for violation of SEBI's CIS Regulations, among others, as per a direction from the Supreme Court. 21

22 PACL BUSINESS ACTIVITIES  PACL offered two kinds of plans to its customers—a cash-down payment plan and an installment payment plan. Under the former, it offered to allot land to customers within 270 days of payment and under the latter within 90 days. In fact, business model of PACL isn’t very complicated. It collects money from investors and invests in cheap land which is likely to see changes in end use. Once that happens, the cheap land becomes a goldmine that PACL monetizes to pay investors 12.5% interest.   At present, it is being estimated that PACL has more than 58.5 million customers, more than twice the 22 million demat accounts in the entire country and has paid commission of Rs 7,893.8 crore up to March 2012 to more than its 8 lakh agents who works as network of chain system for collection of public deposit in return for attractive commissions on deposits brought in by them and other agents linked to them in chain. PACL is yet to allot land to 46.3 million investors where as PACL claimed it was in the business of purchasing and developing land, adding the developed land was transferred to investors.

23 SEBI VS PACL  SEBI clamps down the business activities of PACL categorizing the collection of public deposits under the grab of allotment of farm land to depositors without any maintenance of proper records/data and without registration of its scheme with SEBI under Collective Investment Scheme Regulations and declare the activities of PACL are in the nature of a Ponzi scheme.  SEBI will make a reference to the state governments and local police to register civil or criminal cases against PACL, its promoters, directors and managers for fraud, cheating, criminal breach of trust and misappropriation of public funds if the money is not refunded. SEBI will also initiate attachment and recovery proceedings if the money is not refunded to the public within the deadline. 23

24 Is PACL involved in Collective Investment Scheme?  An investment scheme wherein several individuals come together to pool their money for investing in a particular asset(s) and for sharing the returns arising from that investment as per the agreement reached between them prior to pooling in the money. 24

25 Cont..  Now, the most basic questions which arises, has PACL been altogether involved in Ponzi Scheme or it was failure on part of PACL to get its scheme registered with SEBI under Collective Investment Scheme Regulations? Has PACL cheated any of its investor till date?  Though at this moment we may not have all answers, however few things are very clear: i. The Collective Investment Scheme operated by PACL was not registered with SEBI; ii. There are more than million customers to whom PACL is yet to allot land 25

26 wayout  After the first round of battle, where SEBI has ordered PACL to refund Rs. 49,100 crore to its investors, PACL is getting ready for second round and to knock on Securities Appellate Tribunal (“SAT”) against SEBIs order. The whole battle between SEBI and PACL is on the issue that whether the business activities of PACL comes within the ambit of CIS or not? However, in middle of this battle, there are millions of small investors who had been exposed to high degree of risk, who may lose everything if PACL shrinks.  Is there any way-out to regulate their micro finance business/raising public deposits in real estate?? Though there are not many legal options available, however, PACL could have registered their public raising schemes in real estate under Collective Investment Scheme with SEBI.  In near future we can expect further crackdown on other companies engaged in similar activities like PACL. 26
