On August 31, the Supreme Court had ruled that finance schemes run by two Sahara companies were illegal and ordered the firms to repay Rs 24,000 crore to up to almost 3 crore mostly small investors, plus interest. The court had also directed the group to hand over all documents submitted by the investors to Sebi within 10 days to verify the genuineness of the investors. The deadline expired on September 10.
The court had appointed retired judge, Justice B.N. Aggarwal, to oversee this. Mr. Aggarwal has already submitted his status report to the court saying that Sahara failed to hand over the documents.
The Supreme Court will hear Sebi's case on October 9.
