The order also directs Sebi to transfer sums realized from the sale of attached properties of the company to the RP.

Pancard Clubs had raised Rs. 7000 crore from 50 lakh individuals before the company went bust.

Sebi is investigating the company for running an unregistered collective investment scheme (CIS). The scheme was allegedly an investment scheme in the disguise of a club membership program allowing access to members to use the company’s resort properties for vacationing
