IPL probe trail leads to Swiss bank accounts - 4/29/2010

TOI-pk

NEW DELHI: Investigations into the IPL's murky financial deals have revealed a web of transactions across tax havens, use of Swiss bank accounts and money transfers linking franchisees and even BCCI. One account in a Swiss bank has been found to have deposits of over $3 million.

The BCCI brass may find itself answering some tough questions as may IPL officials past and present as tax authorities have shared specific details with the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to carry out an offshore probe into these transactions.

Sources said deposits in Swiss bank accounts are part of private wealth management of the bank concerned, protected under rigid privacy laws. To get details from bank authorities on transactions may not be so easy as in the recent past, Swiss banks have refused to cooperate with Indian investigators despite letters rogatory in some money laundering cases running into thousands of crores.

Intricate transactions have surfaced in financial deals of some of the franchises. Money transfers have taken place through dozens of entities set up in Nigeria, Mauritius, Hong Kong and in some of the British overseas territories and Crown dependencies such as British Virgin Islands, Isle of Man and Jersey.

BCCI can be asked about money transfers made directly to accounts of the sports body in at least one case. The responsibility of carrying out due diligence on the source of money, to ensure it came from legitimate sources, was that of the apex cricket organization.

Sources said linkages of money having come from some African countries into Swiss accounts cannot be ruled out, raising further doubts on the transaction. Government had imposed tough FEMA regulation on remittances received from abroad after instances of drug money or other crime proceeds having infiltrated the economy came to light a few years ago.

Sources in the ED said in some payments made to BCCI for bagging IPL franchises, the remittances were in contravention of FEMA rules. In some other cases, it is suspected that some IPL team partners may have indulged in round-tripping investments through entities set up in tax havens.

The corporate affairs ministry - which is looking into the shareholding pattern of IPL franchises -- has found discrepancies in ownership status in some cases. In one instance, the list of shareholders shared with the ministry does not show the name of the person who had registered the company with the registrar of companies despite being one of the major shareholders.

The corporate affairs ministry has through its regional directors collected copies of original bid documents of franchises to verify shareholding patterns, investments and their list of directors. The Mumbai Registrar of Companies sent out showcause notices after inconsistencies were found in to at least three companies owning these franchises in filing of balance sheets and annual reports.

Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan as directors of Red Chillies Entertainment Pvt Ltd, Raghuram Natrajan Iyer and Ranjit Rabindranath Barthakur of Jaipur IPL Cricket Pvt Ltd and Gauri Khan, Sanjiv Chawla and Jay Mehta of the Knight Riders Sports Pvt Ltd were among those who have been served notices.

Fishermen not being allowed to build houses on the coast - 4/29/2010

In focus:Local fishermen feel that influential persons who have constructed houses near the coast at Uchila will escape from the clutches of the law.

 

MANGALORE: When a fisherman's (name withheld) brother got married a few months ago, his family decided to build a house for the new couple at Uchila.

However, the fisherman's attempts to get permission from the authorities concerned to construct the house on his patta land have not been successful.

The reason cited by the authorities was that his land was close to the sea and that the Coastal Regulatory Zone (CRZ) notification, 1991 prohibited any construction within 200 m of the shore (high-tide line).

Apart from fishermen's houses, there are at least 10 houses in the area which have come up near the coast and that too on government land.

A couple of such buildings were demolished recently.

Local fishermen feel that influential persons who have constructed the houses will escape from the clutches of the law.

Nagesh Uchila, a fisherman, said there were several instances of fishermen being denied permission to build houses. However, some influential people had built bungalows on government land and also on patta land purchased from fishermen, he alleged.

A staff member of the gram panchayat said that the panchayat got at least five or six applications every month seeking permission to build houses on patta land. The applications were being turned down because any development was illegal within 200 m of the high-tide line, according to the gram panchayat official.

The applicants are then directed to the officials implementing the CRZ notification, in Mangalore, only to be denied the permission again.

The gram panchayat officials said that though some fishermen constructed houses near the coast without seeking permission, such buildings had not been given door numbers. The houses would not get electricity connection unless the door number was given, they said.

However, a bungalow that had come up illegally on government land in Uchila and now identified for demolition had been given the door number.

Demand

Upendra A. Hosbet of Dakshina Kannada Parisaraktha had pressed for inclusion of a provision in the draft notification to allow fishermen who had been traditionally living on the coast to build houses. The draft notification was published recently by the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests.

He suggested that only fishermen who had been living on the coast for generations should be allowed to build houses on a case-to-case basis instead of imposing a blanket ban on construction within 200 m of the shore.

Mr. Hosbet had made this suggestion during a consultation held here before the draft notification was published.

Mr. Hosbet pointed out on Tuesday that the draft notification had made special provisions to protect fishermen living close to the backwaters in Kerala in view of the density of population there and allowed them to build dwelling units. The density of population along Karnataka's coast should also be taken into account and fishermen here allowed to construct houses in the CRZ area, he said.

When fishermen living within municipal limits were being permitted to build houses in the CRZ area, why were those living in rural areas being discriminated against, he wondered.

Mr. Hosbet said he would make a presentation in this regard to the Ministry which has set May 30 as the deadline to receive objections to the notification.

He further informed that giving vaccinations for flu is no longer necessary, but companies have to market their products. The hospital staff is used as guinea pigs in medical experiments, he alleged. 

He declared that the reason for the decline in the quality of medical education is the government’s provision of licenses to all private colleges. Besides, students can easily purchase medical degrees, owing to which the doctors trained in colleges are unable to provide any quality medical service to the people, he said. He also regretted that, although the centre has released Rs 1,300 lakh for Life Scheme, it is not being utilized for the welfare of the beneficiaries. 

State Secretary of Asha Workers Association Dr Nagalakshmi was the chief guest of the programme. She said that government hospitals are gaining recognition owing to the service provided by Asha workers at villages. The infant and mother mortality rates were high, but now they have come down, she said, adding that the Asha workers bear the credit for this. 

Secretary of UTUC K V Bhat and State Committee Member of All India Women’s Cultural Association Sandhya were the chief speakers. Yashodha Muralidhar presided over the programme.
