Bengaluru: In a major relief the Karnataka government has opened a one-month window for depositors of the IMA Ponzi scheme to file their claims.

Speaking with this regard special Officer for IMA and other scam cases Harsh Gupta said that the authority will accept claims from IMA investors for one month, starting November 25to December 24, and no applications will be accepted after the stipulated period.

Depositors can submit claims online by visiting any Bengaluru One, Karnataka One, and Atalji Jan Snehi Kendra centers, and can take the help of operators. No physical documents will be accepted by the authorities.

A simple two-stage process has been put in place where claimants can provide basic personal details like mobile number and bank account details, while in the second stage, they would have to provide scheme-wise deposit details.

Depositors can file claims using Aadhaar or Unique Transaction Reference (UTR) number for Re 1 transfer from the victim’s bank account to the authority (AC no. 6442116442 IFSC – HDFC0001748). If the declared bank account with IMA is operational, the depositors need not submit any documents regarding scheme enrolment, like bond certificate, share certificate, etc. If the account is not operational, depositors have to upload these documents. If the deposit details tally with the IMA database, applicants need not provide receipts for deposits. Else, they need to upload deposit receipts.

Those who file claims using Aadhaar OTP or UTR number for Re 1 transfer from non-IMA declared bank account will need additional authentication to be eligible for the claim amount.

The depositors can authenticate through Aadhaar biometric or send Re 1 from the IMA-linked bank account, within 60 days of the last date. Beyond 60 days, they have to authenticate themselves physically, with alternative documents.

In case the depositor has passed away or is hospitalized, the application can be filed by the nominee or legal heir, supported with a death certificate, hospital documents etc.
