The Modi government is moving towards fulfilling the resolution of returning the deposits of those investors, under which the ‘Sahara Refund Portal’ will be launched tomorrow.”
“The commitment of the Ministry of Cooperatives under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi will bring relief to all those people who are waiting to get back their hard-earned money,” Shah added.
Accordingly, Shah will launch the Central Registrar of Cooperative Societies (CRCS) Sahara Refund Portal on Tuesday.
The CRCS portal has been developed for submission of legitimate claims by the genuine depositors of four cooperative societies namely — Sahara Credit Cooperative Society Ltd., Saharayn Universal Multipurpose Society Ltd., Humara India Credit Cooperative Society Ltd., and Stars Multipurpose Cooperative Society Ltd.
