Acharya demanding for the CBI probe on the chit fund companies, which has looted crores of money from the innocent depositors of the state.However later revealing the book today  Mr. Barman demanded for the CBI probe on the chit fund companies here that has looted hundred of crores money from the depositors, especially the companies where Chief Minister Manik Sarkar himself remained present during its inaugural programme and cheered the depositors to invest money on it.

TPCC Council party headed by the opposition leader Sudip Roy Barman will also meet the Governor P. B. Acharya on March 27 likely at round 1:00 pm seeking a CBI probe on the chit fund companies, Barman told to reporters here today.

Barman accused  Left front govt. demanding CBI interrogation of CM Manik Sarkar like the way Madan Mitra in West Bengal was interrogated by the CBI and Police and was jailed on charge of prompting the Chit fund Companies. Besides, Sudip Barman also informed that the Pradesh Congress has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Delhi and seeking time for a meeting on chit fund related issues. And if necessary the Pradesh Congress will also sit for a dharna at Delhi Rajpath, said Barman.    

Barman later talking on the congress constituted redressal cell, said that a total of Rs. 158 cr. 43 lakhs, 12 thousands and 496 has been found looted by the chit fund companies on the basis of a total of 117 complaints against the chit fund companies. However, the book that revealed today by the opposition congress  also sent to the CBI, PMO office and to all the political parties, Barman said.

It is worthy to mention  here that the Tripura High Court recently has directed the state government to set up a Special Investigating Team with the Chief Secretary and the DGP as monitors to look into the activities of chit funds and non-banking financial companies operating in the state.

The division bench of Chief Justice Deepak Gupta and Utpalendu Bikash Saha yesterday directed that other administrative officers would also be included in the committee but the Chief Secretary and the DGP would monitor the cases against chit funds and NBFCs. 

A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed by some depositors of Response Group, an NBFC, in June 2013, seeking direction from the court to wind up the movable and immovable properties of the company and to release their deposits. The court's direction came when the SP of West Tripura district and one Under Secretary of the government Arup Deb requested the court to refer the chit fund related cases to CBI as there were no efficient police officers in the state to deal with the economic offences. 

The state government had in 2013 requested CBI to take up 37 cases related to chit funds and NBFCs, but CBI took up only five cases including Rose Valley group.
