Raipur (thestates.news) |CAIT National Vice President Amar Parwani, chairman Magelal Maloo , Amar Gidwani State President Jitendra Doshi , States Working President Vikram Singh Deo, Parmanand Jain , Vashu Makhija, state General secretary Suriender singh , State Working General secretary Bharat Jain, State Treasure Ajay Agrawal and state Midia Prabhari Sanjay Choubey informed It is most surprising that Ganja transaction that happened in the past on Amazon portal, a racket which was busted by the Madhya Pradesh Police few months ago, the Ganja sellers were able to register several fake companies as sellers on Amazon platform including “Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra” and a part of proceeds of Ganja sale were made to about 10 different fake accounts including an account of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra. It is very disgusting and undignified that the name of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra, has also been used in Ganja selling and sadly the culprits did not spare even Lord Ram in their obnoxious transactions bringing in the light a case where laws and rules are never followed. It speaks how dare the culprits who have used the account of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple construction fund bank account and so far the Madhya Pradesh Police has not taken any significant action on this most heinous issue. It also amply establishes the claims of CAIT made in the past that no required KYC is done by Amazon for onboarding sellers on its portal.
CAIT National Vice President Mr. Amar Parwani and State President Mr. Jitendra Doshi said that as per information available with CAIT, the mafia group selling Ganja got almost 10 fake companies in Visakhapatnam registered as sellers on Amazon platform including one company Babutax, from where the Ganja was sent to various places including Madhya Pradesh and almost 10 fake accounts including Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra, were also registered as sellers and official proceeds were remitted to Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Khsetra having an account no. 39161495808 with State Bank of India, Naya Ghat Branch, Ayodhya, besides several other companies.Same UPI number was used to transfer the funds. Fake GST numbers were used by the people involved in this case revealing the fact that both transactions were fraud as also related accounts are fraud.
Mr. Parwani & Mr. Doshi said that the Reserve Bank of India under section 18 of the Payment & Settlement System Act,2007 had issued a circular on 24.11.2009 making it mandatory for every payment aggregator to do strict KYC essentially of every person registered on its e-commerce platform. An agreement between the merchant and Payment aggregator is fundamental to layout online business. Financial information acts as the linchpin for financial transactions. Amazon runs e-commerce platform with contractual relations has a greater responsibility to maintain sanctity. Amazon or any online marketplace is required to comply with know your customer/anti-money laundering/combating financing of terrorism guidelines issued by the RBI. Mr. Parwani & Mr. Doshi said that the above episode reflects the fact that no due diligence has been made by Amazon in onboarding sellers on its neither platform nor any vigil has been taken on transactions. It is an alarming situation where illegality is on the top of the platform .Similarly, the chances of money laundering or transfer of money to anti-nation, anti-social elements can not be ruled out.
Mr. Parwani & Mr. Doshi said that Brick & Mortar stores has a well developed regime for licensing, monitoring and otherwise pr…
