5. How is the working of chit fund scheme ?

The modus operandi of the chit fund, in a nutshell, is as follows:-

The foreman of the fund collects a specific periodic subscription from each of certain number of subscriber member. The total of the periodic subscription, called the capital of the chit fund is given out periodically as the prize amount to any one of the member through a system of auction. There will be many periodical installments as per the number of subscribers. Thus each member gets an opportunity to receive the prize amount once during the tenure of the scheme. All members contribute towards the periodic subscription till the end of the duration of the chit scheme.

Let us illustrate byway of an example .A chit scheme with a duration of 40 months and face value of Rs.1,00,000/- will have monthly subscription of Rs.2500/-. There will be, conventionally, 40 members in the scheme. Each member will pool in his subscription of Rs.2500/- every month for 40 months and ends up paying Rs.100000/- in the month in which he requires the consolidated amount.

The dealings as per market practice, do not take place at face value. The subscriber who takes the fund in the beginning gets it at a discount. This discount is divided equally in favours of all the 40 members of the fund after deducting the service charges of the foreman. The capital funds received by subscribers in succeeding months show a rising graph and with each passing month the subscribers get a bigger prize amount. The discount/dividend each month is the profit for all the subscribers have taken their prize money at the end of 40 months.

The auction is conducted in which the members participate and the person who discounts the maximum is declared as the prized subscriber. If there are more than one participant for maximum discount the Successful Bidder will be determined by way of lottery. Where in, the tokens bearing the numbers allotted to the members is put into a box and one token is drawn by any of the member present in the auction and thus, the member whose number is mention on the drawn token will be declared as the Successful Bidder.
