  1. Most respected supreme court of India had asked to the concerned for the repayment of the depositors within 7 months of the order passed by apex court.

  2. The available statistics is only showing that government is not interested in refund of the money of the depositors, but it is only playing a game to mislead large number of depositors who were cheated by Saharayn Multi State Cooperative Society.
