The Supreme Court is set to hear Sahara chief Subrata Roy’s petition on Tuesday. Sahara has raised some points over its legal battle with stock market regulator Sebi

    Sahara says it has already paid 93% of the investors. Per investor average deposit is of 8,400. Hence, it can be repaid in cash as per law 
    In last 17 months, Sebi repaid only 1 cr and is holding 5619 cr (including interest), argues Sahara 
    No verification process has been started by Sebi in the last 17 months, disobeying court’s August 31, 2012 order, the company says 
    Sahara offered guarantee of the entire amount through bank trustee security; but when it was rejected, the company says it offered irrevocable bank guarantee. This has not been accepted 
    At the heart of the matter lies Sebi’s demand, under directions of the Supreme Court, of an additional 20,000 crore along with 15% interest to investors 
    The company says Sebi has alleged that Sahara’s investors are fictitious and untraceable 

    Sahara says that in 2008, it had repaid around 4 crore depositors under supervision of the Reserve Bank of India 
    The company says in response to Sebi’s assertion that many of the 20,000 letters to depositors didn’t elicit a response, Sahara had submitted affidavits and KYC documents confirming their existence 
    Sahara says it remains Sebi’s responsibility to ascertain the authenticity of its claim that it has repaid most of their money 

    If Sebi continues to insist that investors do not exist, then, by the same logic, the regulating body — born out of the specific mandate of protecting investors — also ceases to have any further stake or role to play in the case, the company said in a statement 
    Sahara says a proper verification process has not been implemented to ascertain the existence of its depositors — despite conclusive evidence forwarded to Sebi in the form of original documents, repayment vouchers and receipts 
    Sahara says as a market regulator, Sebi does not have the power to regulate unlisted entities. Sebi is looking to sell properties belonging to third parties which have been kept as security with Sebi, even when it has no authority to effect any such sale without the consent of the titleholders of the properties
