The issue of chit fund emerges as an important area of reporting by the media following the collapse of Kolkata based Saradha group of companies. It becomes imperative for the media to understand the methodology of these companies as they attract millions of small time depositors for high returns.

As the media has to report on various ponzi schemes, which is under control of various groups or companies in eastern India, the reporter should understand the correct perspective.
