The Collective Investment Schemes, where an entity pools in money from investors for certain pre-specified purposes and later distributes the profits or income, come under Sebi’s ambit.

In some recent crackdowns, had barred companies including Rose Valley Real Estate, and from raising public money and from launching any new schemes.

Many of these entities and their operators and directors tend to restart similar business under a new name and numerous investors are taken for a ride before they come under the scanner, the official says.

has requested the ministry to circulate the names of defaulter CIS entities and their directors among all the Registrars of Companies (RoCs) in the country to prevent them from being associated with any new company. is also of the view that an overhaul of the current CIS regulations is needed, as loopholes in the existing rules allow investors to be taken for a ride.

will take up the issue of these regulatory gaps at a meeting of the Financial Stability and Development Council chaired by the Finance Minister. The council includes top financial sector regulators such as the RBI Governor and the Chairman.

While hundreds of companies have engaged in CIS activities in the country, just one such entity is registered with to undertake such business. According to data, more than 100,000 investor complaints are pending with it in connection with such schemes, and the matters have been sub-judice for long in most cases.

While is the regulatory authority for such schemes, a number of other government agencies and departments also govern similar investment products and a lack of clarity in this regard comes in the way of bringing the guilty to book.
