Subramanian Swamy exposes P.Chidambaram's fraud in 7 page letter to PM Modi-
https://www.pgurus.com/swamy-exposes-hidden-property-of-chidambaram-in-cambridge-kickbacks-taken-by-son-karti/
This article is from PG Gurus and is copied here for the sole purpose of circulating it more, to expose the corruption that has been blatantly going on in India for the last 70years. 

People who carry an image of polished upper class gentlemen, who have everything in life, have an insatiable greed for more and have used every opportunity in every position to defraud the nation at the expense of the Indian tax payer. In this case, he was the Finance Minister and Home Minister.

What is even more frightening to think of, is the network that these people would have created in our administrative and political circles to efficiently carry out their fraudulent work. It is this network that Subramanian Swamy has been working tirelessly to expose and break.

One must be aware that what has come out is only likely to be a tip of the iceberg and we sincerely hope there will be more support for Dr.Swamy to completely expose the full extent of corruption indulged in by such politicians, their families and associated people.

The government needs to act immediately on this. 


IT findings of corruption and illegal property holding by Chidambaram and his son Karti: Swamy

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy again strikes at the hidden assets of former Finance Minister P Chidambaram’s family. After exposing son Karti’s 21 secret foreign bank accounts, this time Swamy brought out the details of Chidambaram’s hidden property in Cambridge in UK found by Income Tax’s Investigation Wing. Revealing the details of a 200 page Income Tax analysis on the seized hard disks of Karti’s companies, Swamy detailed more than 20 instances of blatant corruption and illegal money flow and of properties purchased abroad.

Addressing a press conference in Delhi on Tuesday, Swamy shared his seven page letter to the Prime Minister with the media, providing the major findings of Income Tax’s Chennai Unit…

“The Income Tax (IT) which seized the hard disks from Karti’s companies found that P Chidambaram, wife Nalini Chidambaram, son Karti and his wife Srinidhi, had in 2008 jointly purchased a property and a big palatial house in Cambridge town in UK. As per the seized Income Tax documents, the property bought by P. Chidambaram and family is at: 5, Holben Close, Cambridge, U.K. CB237AQ. This huge property and home was purchased from Edmund Suley Holt and Heather Holt, and the money for the purchase was drawn from Karti’s personal account in London’s Metro Bank account number 16714313”. Chidambaram declared only wife Nalini’s share in the Cambridge property. Neither he nor Karti declared their portion in Cambridge land deal.


“Chidambaram never declared this property in any of his mandatory affidavits as candidate for elections to Lok Sabha or Rajya Sabha or as MP or Minister. Karti also has not declared this. This is plain corruption under Section 13 (1) (e) of the Prevention of Corruption Act,” said Swamy in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging for immediate CBI-ED probe and seizure of hidden properties and black money parked by Chidambaram and family.

Addressing a press conference in Delhi on Tuesday, Swamy shared his seven page letter to the Prime Minister with the media, providing the major findings of Income Tax’s Chennai Unit, complaining that
Finance Ministry is not allowing officers to act on this report for the past six months.

Income Tax also found several instances of money flow to Karti’s companies from several cases of FIPB approval granted by Chidambaram. Jailed media baron Peter Mukerjea had paid more than Rs. Two crores to Karti’s company Advantage Strategic Consulting Pvt Ltd and other firms abroad.

The documents unearthed by Income Tax show that ASCPL received money from many companies when their FDI investment files were with FIPB and CCEA during Chidambaram’s tenure as Finance Minister.

The joint raid of Income Tax and Enforcement Directorate (ED) was conducted in December 2015 in connection with the Aircel-Maxis scam. The investigators have seized several documents and hard disks from Karti’s offices.

The investigators found that Karti’s company had entered into a deal with a Russian bank called Nazprom and became the bank’s agent for dealing with the Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) Indian Overseas Bank (IOB). The agreements with the Russian bank seized show that Karti’s firm used to get five percent commission for each transaction! After Chidambaram became the Home Minister, Karti’s firm also got money from a South African firm engaged for providing security arrangements for Indian Premier League (IPL) Cricket.


The documents unearthed by Income Tax show that ASCPL received money from many companies when their FDI investment files were with FIPB and CCEA during Chidambaram’s tenure as Finance Minister.

The companies which transferred money to Karti’s ASCPL are Claris Life Sciences, Diageo Scotland Limited, which acquired fugitive Vijay Mallya’s UB Spirits, Katra Group, Arcelor Mittal linked Saksoft, Reflections belonging to Spark Capital Advisory Private Limited.

The IT has unearthed that large sums of money were transacted through Karti controlled Advantage Strategic Consulting Private Limited Company’s bank accounts in Singapore to buy properties in UK like the purchase of an 88 acres farmhouse, known as Surridge Farm in Somerset in UK and another property in Cambridge, at Ceres, 29, Meade Hose at Cambridge.

The worst of all this was that Karti used to take money for fixing appointments with father Chidambaram.

The Income Tax – ED joint raids found that after the Aircel-Maxis deal, there was a large money flow into and out of the ASCPL Singapore subsidiary Company. This money was used to buy huge properties, hotels, farmhouses, vineyards, stud farms and race horses and Tennis Courts in 14 countries, alleged Swamy. Investigators’ report say these secret assets are worth more than Ten Thousand Crores ($1.5 billion), said Swamy, blaming the Finance Ministry for not allowing honest officers to act.

“In all of Karti’s numerous sham companies, including ASCPL, curiously there are five common Directors: C B N Reddy, Bhaskar Raman, Mohanan Rajesh, Ravi Viswanathan and V Padma. The Income Tax also found that all these five persons have entered and executed an extraordinarily suspicious Will, stating that they owe all properties and assets to Karti or his daughter Aditi, out of “respect and love” for P Chidambaram and son! This shows that these five persons are nothing but benamis of son Karti and father Chidambaram,” said Swamy giving the details of curious agreements unearthed by Income Tax from Karti’s computers.

The worst of all this was that Karti used to take money for fixing appointments with father Chidambaram. In a bizarre payoff, the British company Diageo Scotland Limited which acquired fugitive Vijay Mallya’s UB Spirits paid $15,000 as “Service Charges” to Karti’s ASCPL for fixing appointments with then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Finance Minister Chidambaram. Diageo’s email copies are available with IT, “thanking” Karti for fixing appointment of company owner Lord Blyth of Diageo with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister Chidambaram. These emails also have as attachment the $15,000 pay out receipt as Service Charges for fixing appointments with PM and FM,” said Swamy.

Subramanian Swamy’s detailed seven page letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, outlining the findings of Income Tax is published below:

    By Team PGurus - March 15, 2017  https://www.pgurus.com/chidambara-rahasya-details-of-huge-secret-assets-foreign-bank-accounts-of-chidambaram-family/

    Income Tax Dept. uneartherd the assets & foreign bank accounts of the Chidambaram familyThe Income Tax’s Chennai Investigation Unit’s report having more than 200 pages about former Finance Minister P Chidambaram’s family and especially son Karti and his companies huge assets in more than 14 countries are now out in the public domain. Recently some portion of this sensitive report was exposed in public by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy in a press conference. Many media houses whose owners are friendly and in collusion with Chidambaram tried to black out the news.

  2. In the interest of public, we are producing the entire data of assets and bank accounts found in the joint raid of Income Tax and Enforcement Directorate.

    # 21 foreign bank accounts by Karti and his companies in Metro Bank in UK, 4 accounts in OCBC in Singapore in the name of Advantage Strategic Consulting Pte Ltd, the controversial company caught in kickbacks in Aircel-Maxis scam, 2 banks in Spain namely Sabadell Atlantico, La Caxia Bank, HSBC UK, Barclays Bank in Monaco, Marseille BNP Paribas in France, UBS in Switzerland etc. The details list of the 21 secret foreign bank accounts unearthed by investigators are published at the end of this post.

    # The Income Tax which seized hard disks from Karti’s companies found that P. Chidambaram, wife Nalini Chidambaram, son Karti and his wife Srinidhi jointly purchased a property and a big palatial house in Cambridge in UK. As per the Income tax seized documents, the property bought by Chidambaram and family is: 5, Holben Close, Cambridge, CB237AQ. This huge property and home was purchased from Edmund Suley Holt and Heather Holt and the money was transacted from Karti’s personal account in London’s Metro Bank account number: 16714313. Chidambaram never declared this property in any of his mandatory affidavits as Member of Parliament (MP) or Minister. Chidambaram in his affidavit to Rajya Sabha in May 2016 declared only 1/3rd portion of the property as wife Nalini’s property. He also under-invoiced the value of this property of his wife’s share at just Rs.1.55 crores, while UK’s real estate websites estimate this property in Cambridge to be worth more than Rs.85 crores.

    # Karti’s Advantage Strategic Consulting Private Limited ‘s Singapore company’s bank accounts to buy properties in UK like purchase of 88 acres farm house known as Surridge Farm in Somerset, UK. The land value shown in the registry is one million pounds.

    # Another property in Cambridge is at Ceres, 29, Meade House at Cambridge.

    # Chidambaram’s son Karti has built a massive empire in different parts of the world by making investments in real estate and engaging in other business activities in London, Dubai, South Africa, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, British Virgin Island, France, USA, Switzerland, Greece and Spain. Most of the purchases happened during the period 2006 to 2014 when Chidambaram was Finance Minister and Home Minister. The probe agencies estimate these assets across the world are expected to be more than Three Billion Dollars. Why did the Chidambarams invest in real estate in first world countries?
    This post will give you a clue.

    # Karti’s Singapore-based firm had
    acquired majority shares of a big resort in Sri Lanka, known as Lanka Fortune Residencies. This company owns the prestigious resorts ‘The Waterfront’, ‘Weligama Bay Resort’ and Emerald Bay Hotel.

    # Karti’s Singapore firm routed money via Dubai to acquire three farms and vineyards in South Africa, identified as Rowey Farm in Grabouw, Cape Orchards and Vineyards Private Limited, and Zandvliet Enterprises, a wine and stud farm in Ashton.

    # The Dubai-based Desert Dunes Properties Ltd has also investment in Karti’s Singapore-based company Advantage. The probes have unearthed a money trail of 1.7 million Singapore Dollars between these firms. Another Dubai-based company, Pearl Dubai FX LLC, also had financial transaction with Advantage. This shows that Karti linked firms have offices and assets in UAE also.

    # The Advantage’s Ceres, 29, Meade House had entered into joint ventures with the Philippines-based companies to obtain a franchise team of International Premier Tennis League (Asia). The Philippine firms, which were engaged in joint ventures with the Karti-controlled company, are SM Arena Complex Corporation, Sports Entertainment Events Management Inc.

    # The Advantage had also had financial transactions with another real estate company in Singapore known as Real Beyond Pte. Ltd. having three subsidiaries in Malaysia. The investigation has unearthed that these transactions led to 16 land purchases in Thailand.

    # The Advantage’s Singapore unit has set up a firm in British Virgin Island (BVI), namely Somerset Surridge Ltd. Advantage also invested 400,000 Singapore dollars in another BVI firm known as Full Innovations Ltd. It also has financial dealing with Geben Trading Limited in BVI and offices in Switzerland. This firm’s major transactions were through the famous Swiss Bank, namely UBS. The investigators got proofs of transactions in Dollars and Euro. The Advantage also has transaction of five million Singapore dollars with another firm in Singapore, namely Unison Global Investment Ltd.

    # The Karti-controlled company in Singapore entered into joint ventures with Gravitas Investments,
    Match Point International Tennis Events to buy a franchise Tennis team called ‘Manila Mavericks’. This deal was worth of 12 million US dollars and the money was paid in 10 installments.

    # Karti’s Singapore company also acquired a residential flat in Malaysia worth 1.9 million Malaysian Ringgits from a firm called Peninsular Smart. The probe team also found some agreement papers which shows that the Advantage holds franchisees of CafĂ©’ Coffee Day in some locations in Malaysia. The investigators have found several transactions to Karti’s Singapore firm with Malaysian companies. Malaysia is the head quarters of telecom giant Maxis which acquired Aircel in 2006. The IT and ED officers seized payment details amounting to more than Rs.30 crore in foreign currencies.

    # The Advantage in Singapore also opened a subsidiary firm in Barcelona in Spain known as Advantage Estrategia Esportiva SLU in August 2012. This is a sports academy having four acres with seven tennis courts in Spain.

    # Karti-linked Singapore firm has also one million US dollar investment in a company in France known as Pampelonn Organisation. The Advantage also has transactions with a Greek firm known as Pisani John Sakellarios in Athens.

    # Karti’s firm Advantage Strategic Consulting Private Limited (ASCPL) had transactions with Aircel Televenutres, DCB Client, Diageo Scotland Limited, Katra Group, Sri Lanka Export Development Board, Unifi Wealth Management Ltd, VST Tillers Tractors, Carlton Trading Company, Claris Life Sciences’, ITC Centre, Best Land Realty Limited, Essar Steel Limited, Gokul Builders and Estates, S Kumar, INX Media, Reflections, Thiagarajar Mills Private Limited, Saksoft, EL Forge Limited.

    # The Income Tax which seized hard disks from Karti’s companies also found that Karti used to get huge money as kickbacks in several Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) deals pending with father former Finance Minister P Chidambaram.

    # On Sept 22, 2008, ASCPL received Rs.35 Lakh from INX Media (now known as News X TV Channel), which applied for FIPB clearance of 220 million dollar during the period. Same day another Rs.60 Lakh was paid from INX Media to Northstar Software Solutions Pvt Ltd. Major shares of this Northstar Software Solutions Pvt Ltd controlled by C B N Reddy, who is a Benami and Director of ASCPL and its Singapore subsidiary also. On Sept 24, 2008 another tranche of 20,000 Dollars were paid to ASCPL’s Singapore subsidiary by INX Media.

    # On Sept 26, 2008, ASCPL had a money transaction of 50,000 dollars with Geben Trading Limited in Athens in Greece. This company’s address is 4 Zaf.Matsa Street, 14564 Athens, Greence and incorporated in British Virgin Islands (BVI). The money transactions of ASCPL also show to
    Geben Trading’s bank account in UBS, Geneva in Switzerland. The emails of banking transaction details were marked to Karti also and documents shows about a business takeover of healthcare and rehabilitation centers in Greece. All these transactions happened during the INX Media’s Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) approvals for 220 million dollar were pending with Karti’s father Finance Minister P Chidambaram. In short, the murder accused Peter and Indrani Mukherjea who sold their INX Media paid around 9 crores rupees to Karti linked firms for FIPB clearance.

# In August 2008, Karti’s Singapore company got 60 lakh shares in the media firm Network 18’s London based company Artevea Digital UK This deal happened when Network 18 applied for a series of FIPB clearances, when Chidambaram was the Finance Minister. This led to around 25 crores kickback for processing the FIPB clearance.

# The documents unearthed by Income Tax shows that ASCPL received money from many companies when their FDI investment files were with FIPB and Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) during Chidambaram’s tenure as Finance Minister. The companies which transferred money to Karti’s ASCPL are Claris Life Sciences, Diageo Scotland Limited which acquired fugitive Vijay Mallya’s UB Spirits, Katra Group, Arcelor Mittal linked Saksoft, Reflections belong to Spark Capital Advisory Private Limited. As per the Income Tax Analysis Report, all these deals involve around Rs. 500 crores kickback to Karti linked companies for necessary FIPB and CCEA clearances during Chidambaram’s period in Finance Ministry.

# The documents seized from the raid also show that ASCPL received money from Best Land Realty, when the company got a Rs.304 crore loan from Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) Banks.

# In a bizarre incident, the British company Diageo Scotland Limited which acquired fugitive Vijay Mallya’s UB Spirits even paid 15,000 dollars as Service Charges to Karti’s ASCPL for fixing appointments with then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Finance Minister Chidambaram. Diageo’s emails thank Karti for fixing appointment of company owner Lord Blyth with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Finance Minister Chidambaram. The thanking email also attached the 15,000 dollar pay out receipt as Service Charges for fixing appointments with PM and FM. This is a clear case of abuse of power initiating case under Prevention of Corruption Act.

# Another clear case of favoritism to son’s company by abusing power by Chidambaram is – In September 2006, Russia’s National Industrial Bank (Nazprom) appoints Karti’s ASCPL as Business Consultant for their Joint Venture with Indian Overseas Bank. The documents seized by Income Tax included ASCPL’s agreement with Russian Bank Nazprom and Nazprom’s series of communications with IOB including the meetings in Chennai. The emails show that in each transactions with the Russian bank and PSU IOB, Karti’s ASCPL minted money in the form of consultancy. The Russian Bank’s agreement says Karti’s ASCPL’s Singapore subsidiary will get 5% as commission with all transactions with Indian Overseas Bank, apart from the initial 25,000 dollar processing fee.

This is a clear case of abuse of power by Finance Minister Chidambaram to get a cut for son Karti’s company for each money transfer between PSU Bank IOB and Russian Bank Nazprom.

# Karti’s ASCPL also received huge money from a South African company Nicholas Stynes Associates Limited. This South African company was engaged in providing security to IPL Cricket and the money transactions with Karti’s company happened when Chidambaram was Home Minister.

# The documents also show that ASCPL got huge money as commission from Allianze Securities for sale of NABARD Bonds when Chidambaram was Finance Minister.

# The money was paid to Finance Minister Chidambaram from Karti’s Meltrack Ltd in relation to sale of shares and selling of huge tract of land in Mysore to VST Tillers & Tractors Limited. The land was mortgaged to Union Bank of India. P Chidambaram was shown as unsecured creditor to Meltrack Limited.

A very interesting thing in all Karti companies including ASCPL – there are five common Directors like C B N Reddy, Bhaskar Raman, Mohanan Rajesh, Ravi Viswanathan and V Padma. The Income Tax found that all these five persons have entered into a curious WILL that they owe all properties and assets to Karti or his daughter Aditi in consideration of respect and love to P Chidambaram! This shows that these five persons are nothing but Benamis of Karti and P Chidambaram.

This is arguably one of the largest catch of black money in India from a politician’s family.

The billion dollar question is when will the Government order CBI, ED and Income Tax to initiate proceedings under Prevention of Corruption Act, PMLA, Benami Transactions Act and seizure of Black Money against Chidambaram and his family members.

Here is a list of 21 Foreign Bank Accounts being held by Karti Chidambaram:

Why is Chidambaram renting from his wife & son at Rs 2 lakh/ month for staying in Delhi?



Source - By Team PGurus - https://www.pgurus.com/why-is-chidambaram-renting-from-his-wife-son-at-rs-2-lakh-month-for-staying-in-delhi/ March 23, 2017

Why is Chidambaram renting one floor of a posh apartment from his wife and son?Is there a tax loophole that the ex-Finance Minister devised that he himself is taking advantage of?

The 200 page Income Tax (IT) report shows that the former Finance Minister P Chidambaram has engaged in a funny deal with his wife Nalini and son Karti. As per the agreements seized in the joint raid of Income Tax and the Enforcement Directorate (ED), there appears to be an inspired scheme to fool the taxman through bogus agreements.

What is the ring of fire that prevents the current government from acting?

After getting out of power in mid 2014, Chidambaram who claims to be a resident in Delhi’s Gymkhana Club enters into curious rent agreement with Nalini and Karti living in Chennai. As per the agreement Nalini and Karti own a floor of a multi-storeyed building having the address 115A at posh Jor Bagh in Delhi. These two owners decided to rent one of the floors to Chidambaram for Rs.2 lakhs ($3000) per month.

In the documents unearthed, it is shown that this one floor Jor Bagh apartment lists for an official price of around Rs.30 crores ($4.6 million). Some documents show that still the mutation process is pending and that this purchase happened after the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) lost power. These documents were seized in the joint raid by IT and ED at Karti’s companies in connection with the Aircel-Maxis money trail.

So what is unusual about this rent agreement from Chidambaram, who never tired of preaching others to be transparent in financial matters? Why does he declare himself as a resident of Gymkhana Club in Delhi? Nalini and Karti have show their original address at 16-Pycrofts Garden in Chennai, which is also supposed to be Chidambaram’s address.

Then why did Chidambaram show his address as a resident in Gymkhana Club in Delhi? Is he separated from his family? If so, is that fact reflected in his filings? Above all is this sheer accounting jugglery acceptable from a man, who prepared at least nine Budgets? So are all the rules laid down merely guidelines for the salaried class? To quote Orwell, all are equal but some are more equal?

There is more. Chidambaram became a Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) in May 2016 and must have got official accommodation by now. Is he still paying Rs.2 lakhs/ month as rent to his wife and only son?

The picture (see image above) shows that the building is a four storied structure. We are curious as to who owns the rest of the building. The Income Tax report exposed how Chidambaram family manages Benamis by making them sign a
WILL assigning all their assets to Karti’s daughter out of their love for Chidambaram. Does the PC family own just only the one floor? Who owns the other three?

The Rs.10 crore (AKA Million rupees) question (KBC) is when will IT, CBI and ED move? What is the ring of fire that prevents the current government from acting?
