Nikhil Bhatia, it seems, believes that network marketing is OK. Let us have a look at what the Supreme Court of India stated in Kuriachan Chacko case.
"The High Court also upheld the argument of prosecution that the Scheme was a "mathematical impossibility". The promoters of the scheme very well knew that it is certain that the Scheme was impracticable and unworkable making tall promises which the makers of the promises knew fully well that it could not work successfully. It could work for some time in that "Paul can be robbed to pay Peter" but ultimately when there is a large mass of Peters, they will be left in the lurch without any remedy as they would by then have been deceived and deprived of their money. If it is so. It could be said to be a case for application of Section 420 read with Section 34 IPC."
As per the Prize Chits & Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978, (PCMC Act) joining in such money circulation schemes and making others join i.e. enrolling is also crime attracting the penalty and imprisonment. Nikhil Bhatia should understand the Andhra Pradesh High Court held that the business model of Amway India squarely attracts the provisions of PCMC Act).
One more thing. Nikhil is quoting Swami Vivekananda time and again. I respect him as a great philosopher of early 19th century. But that does not mean his views are acceptable in the 21st century. Had he alive today, he would have welcomed the new ideologies and adapted himself to the new modern age. People like Nikhil conveniently forget the great ideas put forward by him on caste system, superstitions and others.
Anyway, I hope Nikhil would realise soon that it is a mirage to run after easy and quick money by joinining multilevel marketing schemes and come out of it with a rational outlook.
