One thought on “OFB – Dissolved”
  1. The OFB are a Black Hole of corruption and incompetence,which has led to losses of Billions of USD, to date,to the Nation.The Baboos and others who run the OFB ,have blown holes, in every aspect of the operations of the OFB – from purchases,manufacturing.wastages,yields,losses of stocks,defectives,sales returns, costing frauds,labour contract frauds ……

    Pakistan exports JF-17s and the OFB can’t even export a screw driver.

    An Ordinance Factory cannot be run, on the basis of a “FOR PROFIT” motive.It is like the Nuclear Fuel Complex – which is NOT A CORPORATION.UCIL is a Company – but not the Nuclear Fuel Complex.

    The PURPOSE of the Corporatisation, is to WHITEWASH ALL THE FRAUDS AND LOSSES in the OFB ,and all its UNITS in India – and THEN, run it as a COMPANY – To provide the excuse to RETRENCH STAFF,and convert the labour, into piece rate workers (as most OFBs run at 50% capacity – and on many orders – then pay OT – as there are induced staff shortages).THEREFORE,THE STAFF COSTS ARE CUT, TO OFFSET THE LOSSES AND FRAUDS IN MANUFACTURING OPERATIONS.

    IT MUST BE NOTED THAT LOSSES AND FRAUDS IN OPERATIONS = DIVERSION OF ORDINANCE AND WEAPONS,TO “ALTERNATIVE USES”.

    To save the Political and Baboodom, FROM THE cost of sacking the staff – the best option, is to get a Board of Directors to axe the staff – and then use that legal cover, to raise capital, from the equity markets.

    Y Does the GOI have no capital ? Because all the banks are looted and busted – like the latest record making Rs 8000 crores bank fraud, on Canara Bank and 13 more banks,where Canara Bank was the lead bank.The borrower was Transstroy India Limited – owned by a TDP MLA.

    Netas have used Banks to loot the Indian People – as the persons who go to jail are the Baboos,Bankers and Borrowers – while the Borrower has paid off the Neta.

    The Netas will NOT recoup the Bank Frauds and Wilful defaulters – as that money,is with the NETAS – and thus,have to raise oil prices and sell PSUs – through ingenious tools – UNDER THE COVER OF COVID.

    THE ENTIRE INDIAN BANKING SYTEM,IS DESIGNED,AS A TOOL FOR THE NETAS,TO LOOT THE INDIAN PEOPLE – LIKE A TAX ,OF SAY , 5% OF THE INCREMENTAL BANK DEPOSITS, IN A YEAR – BY STEALING THE LOANS MADE TO THE CRONIES,OF THE NETAS !

    Y DO BANKS LEND TO THE PROPERTY SECTOR, AND NOT DECLARE OR DISCLOSE FRAUDS ? IT IS TO KEEP THE PROPERTY SECTOR BLOATED AND AFLOAT. UNLESS THERE ARE 3-5 LACS CRORES OF PROPERTY LOANS EVERY YEAR – THE RESALE MARKET WILL BE DEAD – AND PRICES WILL CRASH – AND IF NEW PROJECTS ARE NOT FUNDED, THEN STEEL, CEMENT AND FURNISHING SALES WILL CRASH. SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT BY FUNDING NEW PROJECTS – BANKS ARE INCREASING SUPPLY AND LOWERING PRICES ! NONSENSE! BANKS LEND TO THESE PROJECTS – KNOWING THAT THE PROJECTS WILL BE STALLED – “BUT THE LAND WILL BE BLOCKED ,AND WILL NOT ENTER THE SUPPLY SIDE OF THE EQUATION”

    THAT WILL CREATE A LAND SQUEEZE,AND A “PUT OPTION” ON THE PROPERTY PRICES.ALL THIS BENEFITS THE NETAS ALSO – AS THEY OWN BILLIONS OF USD OF BENAMI AND LEGAL LAND – AND THE LAND BOUGHT BY THE DEVELOPERS IS THAT OF THE NETA (AT INFLATED PRIICES – AND SO,THE NETA COERCES THE BANKS TO GIVE THE LOANS)

    BUT THE BANKS ARE THE BIGGEST SCAMSTERS,AS THEIR ENTIRE CREDIT PORTFOLIO FOR ALL SECTORS – HINGES ON THE COLLATERAL OF LAND AND PROPERTY PRICES – AND IF THAT CRASHES – EVERY THING WILL CRASH !

    THAT IS Y BANKS DISCLOSE BANK FRAUDS IN THE PROPERTY SECTOR 5-8 YEARS – AFTER THE FRAUD HAS OCCURRED – WITH THE RBI BLESSINGS – SO THAT THE DEVELOPERS AND NETAS HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO STEAL AND VAMOOZE AND THE PUBLIC (WHO BOOK THE FLATS ARE CONNED)

    LOOK AT THE TIL FRAUD ON CANARA BANK ! THE ACCOUNT WAS A SUBSTANDARD ACCOUNT IN 2014 AND WAS DECLARED A FRAUD IN 2020 – AFTER A FIR WAS FILED BY UNION BANK ! CANARA BANK DID NOT DECLARE IT A FRAUD OR FILE THE FIR (ALTHOUGH THEY WERE THE LEAD BANKER).

    Y ?

    THEY WERE THE PLANNERS OF THE SCAM AND THE BORROWER WAS A TDP MP – WHO OWNED CAN BANK. ELSE,THE BORROWER COULD HAVE CHOSEN SBI AS THE LEAD – BUT IT DID NOT – AS THE AIM WAS TO RIP OFF THE BANK ! TO ENSURE THAT THE TDP MP WAS NOT TAINTED FOR 7 YEARS AND THE CHARGESHEET WAS NOT STATED, IN THE ELECTION COMMISSION AFFIDAVITS – CAMARA BANK DID NOT FILE A FIR OR DECLARE THE BANK FRAUD ! dindooohindoo
