EXPLOITING THE LOOPHOLE IN THE BANKING SYSTEM
After investing in stock exchange Harshad Mehta found some wrong
patterN on trades in stock exchange. He found that companies are not
rising and falling as over their fundamentals, and he started manipulating

HOW IT WAS DONE AND THE ROLE OF THE BROKER

He started manipulating one stock named cc It was


rising , rising and rising only. But Harshad Mehta

had reason for all the questions for its rising. Its ³Replacement Price
Theory´. He was successful in explaining this theory to Indian public.

But the fact had another side too. Mr Mehta started buying this ACC at
mid 1990 and then he made it public. It was Harshad
Mehta¶s trademarked style:-

1 He used to study fundamentals,

2 he used to buy in big quantity and

3 then he used to make it public.

And demand of that   used to rise like anything after


recommendation of this Big Bull !!

Year 1991. Mr Harshad Mehta is now darling of Indian media. He was
dream seller. He was not only Harshad Mehta now.. but he was The
Harshad Mehta. Boss of ³Growmore Research and Asset Management
³. People know this personality as ³ The Big Bull´ of Indian stock
exchange. Harshad Mehta thought different then others. The basic
concept behind his view was very optimistic and somehow it was good
for Indian  !  too. He used to explain people that if
fundamental of some company is good it should go up and should
always goes up. But excess of anything is evil. The dream of great
Indian story was becoming greed generator for Indian public and for Mr
Harshad Mehta too. At his peak, he lived almost like a celebrity in a
15,000 sq ft house, which had a swimming pool ,beautiful golf patch.
He also had a crush for flashy luxurious cars and no wonder he used to
have some of the best car of 1990¶s in his huge parking.

His flashy life and charismatic personality was a problem for many
Indian and international personalities. In 1992, 1st article came out
against this dream merchant and the story was about 600+ Crores
rupees scam !! it was written in article that Harshad Mehta had swiped
600 Crores. rupees from SBI. No one had clue at that time that it was
starting of the most dramatic scam of Indian stock exchange. But fact
was unknown till now . the amount is much more than what was said in
that news article.

As per that article Mr Harshad Mehta used ³Ready Forward Deal´ for
this scam. As per this deal he used to take some short term loan from
banks and used this money in stock exchange to rise the price is the
security. Pure manipulation. As per Indian law it was not allowed to give
such RF loan to any individual person by bank. So it was clear that more
than one banks were involved in this scam. With this money mr Harshad
Mehta used to make waves in Indian stock exchange. He was using this
banks illegally to manipulate the stock exchange mechanism.

Mr Harshad Mehta had one habit of showing off. Larger than life kind of
personality can make the worst enemies for you. When he came to know
this truth it was too late. When he got some finest luxurious  of the
world and he was giving some picture pose of him feeding bears in zoo,
some big names like Anand Rathi and Krishnakant Damani were hurt
badly it was not a good news for the big bull. Whole bear cartel is
against Harshad Mehta now. Everyone knew that Harshad Mehta is
getting money from somewhere. but from where? The bear cartel has
exposed the truth behind the constant rise of this big bull. They have
used almost all the resources they have. It was surprising to point out
here that even this bear cartel was using same ³technique´ as Harshad
Mehta used. But the difference was , public appearance. Bears cartel
used the money from overseas "

And on one not so fine day it was headline of Indian news paper
regarding 4000 crore rupees scam in Indian stock market. Now Harshad
Mehta was in trouble. As the scam was exposed the banks receipts (BR)
value became almost zero. And it was enough reason for crash of some
financial institutes which would lead Indian financial crises. Bear cartel
was behind Harshad Mehta now. They filed as many cases as hey can
against Harshad Mehta . They have used all their sources and made sure
that Harshad Mehta would not get any bail.

Late 2001, place : Thane jail. The jail superintendent came to know
about end of the bull era with news of Harshad Mehta¶s death. Reason
was heart attack. But it was shocking to know that before he died, he
was proved innocent in all other cases against him, and ! in
only one case..!!! That is how it happened. The chair person of
Growmore Research and Asset Management died. And one Bull Run
came to end.
