If you have made the payment by cheque, the cheque must be cleared and credited to MCI (Bangalore) Chits Ltd. bank account before the auction date. The date and time of the auction will be informed at the start of the Chit scheme and continue to be the same until the duration ends. If there is a holiday on the auction date, the auction will be held on the next working day with no changes in timing.
    If you are not able to take part in the auction, you can authorize a foreman to bid on behalf of you by giving him/her a proxy letter that clearly communicates your amount for bidding. The proxy letter details about the bidding will be kept confidential. You can also authorize a third person (not agents) to take part in the auction on behalf of you. To authorize a third person you will have to submit an authorization letter with the authorized person’s signature.

  • How auctions are conducted?

    The auctions will take place in your respective branches and start with open bidding or casting lots. You can bid for a minimum of 5% of the Chit value to a maximum of 40% of the Chit value each month. You are required to bid in multiples of Rs. 100/- starting from the opening bid amount. The subscriber who bids the highest will be declared a successful bidder and will receive the prize money i.e., the total Chit value minus the bid amount. The bid amount minus the 5% of the Chit value (Foreman’s commission) will be divided among all the subscribers in the group called as the dividend. The next month you will have to pay your installment minus the dividend.
    In a case where more than one subscriber comes under the maximum bidding percentage allowed for the Chit value (40%) then the prize winner will be decided through lucky draw or lots. Any subscriber present in the group can pick a token to choose the winner.

  • What if I want to cancel my subscription?

    If you haven’t subscribed to the prize money yet, you can give a written request to cancel your subscription to the respective Foreman. After your request is received by the foreman, he/she will wait for any other subscriber who is willing to take your place in the group. Note that your paid-up amount will be returned only at the end of the Chit duration or when the prize is won by the subscriber who has replaced you after making necessary deductions as mentioned in the agreement signed with you. There will be a cancellation charge of 7-14 percent on the Chit value.
