After the verdict,Chairman,Rose Valley Group,Gautam Kundu said the company will approach the Division Bench of the High Court in a few days and challenge the Single Bench’s order.

Rose Valley had stopped all operations and activities since 2010,added Kundu in a press statement.

On January 3,2011,the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) had directed Rose Valley not to collect any money from investors or to launch any scheme.

According to the SEBI order,the company had collected money from public under collective investment scheme in violation of the legal provisions of the SEBI Act.

Rose Valley challenged the SEBI order in the Calcutta High Court; its petition was,however,dismissed. The company then filed another petition challenging the constitutional validity of the SEBI Act.
