Hi, How can We Help?

A Chit is a kind of savings scheme practiced in India. A Chit Fund Company is a  company that manages, conducts, or supervises such a Chit Fund, as defined in  Chit Funds Act, 1982. According to Section 2(b) of the Chit Fund Act, 1982: 
"Chit means a transaction whether called Chit, Chit Fund, Chitty, Kuree or by any  other name by or under which a person enters into an agreement with a  specified number of persons that every one of them shall subscribe a certain sum  of money (or a certain quantity of grain instead) by way of periodical instalments  over a definite period and that each such subscriber shall, in his turn, as  determined by lot or by auction or by tender or in such other manner as may be  specified in the Chit Agreement, be entitled to the prize amount".
