Respected Dr. Bhagwat,
We, all the FD holders as well as our relatives and friends, earnestly request you to help us recover the hard-earned money invested at the Dewan Housing Finance Corporation Limited (DHFL) in the form of Fixed Deposits at the time of COVID-19 pandemic.
As you know well that this shadow bank is undergoing a moratorium since it was referred to the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Court in December, 2019. DHFL is now under the apt guidance of the RBI and our money is stuck due to various complex legal issues and bureaucratic niceties.
We have invested here in FDs depending on the AAA-rating of the company as we are totally illiterate and ignorant about other forms of investments. Moreover, we have followed the footsteps of Shri Shri Ramakrishna Mission, Air Force, Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL), Uttar Pradesh Gramin Udyog etc., who also have their FD money stuck at the DHFL.
It is an appeal to your honourable counsel to kindly look after this whole matter on humanitarian and philanthropic grounds and relieve us of this unbearable burden. Among us, there are many senior citizens, pensioners, ailing patients and many of us are running our family depending on the interest of our FDs. During this international lockdown due to pandemic, we are not only deprived of our FD interests, we are also unable to earn by performing other types of works at home.
It is a different type of “capital” punishment for us. If you please help us with your kind discretionary powers, despite being sub judice, to get out of this claustrophobic situation, we will forever remain obliged to your kind self. Many of us have developed suicidal tendencies instead of achieving atmanirbharata.
In the context of worldwide pandemic, we are reiterating a mantra from Yajur Veda and Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upaniṣada for the well-being of mānavagotra:
ॐ सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः ।
सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु मा कश्चिद्दुःखभाग्भवेत् ।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः॥
