Clar­i­fi­ca­tion

Business Bhutan - - Editoria - Kavita Ta­mang, C/O Arch Trade­mark Silig­uri, West Ben­gal, In­dia

Sir/Madam,

Apro­pos to “Eight youth claim of be­ing conned in Silig­uri” that ap­peared in Kuensel news­pa­per on Oc­to­ber 5th 2018 and more than 600 Bhutanese youth trapped in a Ponzi scheme in Silig­uri by the Bhutanese news­pa­per on 10/06/2018, it has been found out that the name of the com­pany, Arch Trade­mark Pvt Ltd, has been ma­ligned with­out con­tact­ing us and with­out any proof, and just based on some hearsays by the me­dia.

There­fore, I Kavita Ta­mang run­ning the pro­pri­etary busi­ness by the name and style of Arch Trade­mark Pvt Ltd, at In­dia would like to state and bring into your at­ten­tion of the fol­low­ings:

I am run­ning the pro­pri­etary busi­ness by the name and style of Arch Trade­mark Pvt Ltd,. My pri­mary busi­ness is the sup­ply of ready­made garments at a whole­sale rate for re­tail sell­ing to var­i­ous to var­i­ous dis­trib­u­tors and small busi­ness­men. The said garments are pro­cured di­rectly from the man­u­fac­ture at Delhi and other parts of In­dia.

Apart from this, I also pro­vide a mo­ti­va­tional train­ing course to can­di­dates in­ter­ested in en­ter­ing into the Re­tail busi­ness re­gard­ing the man­ner and the process in which the re­tail busi­ness is to be con­ducted. This is seven days course and there is no prom­ise made to the can­di­dates en­rolling for this train­ing re­gard­ing any fu­ture em­ploy­ment with Arch Trade­mark af­ter the com­pli­ca­tion of the train­ing. This fact is ev­i­dent from the Agree­ment signed by the can­di­dates at the time of their en­rol­ment be­fore the ini­ti­a­tion of train­ing .It is true that a sum of Rs 1000/= is charged as fees for the train­ing .There is no pro­vi­sion for pro­vid­ing any lodg­ing and food­ing to the trainees which must be ar­ranged by them­selves.

There­fore, the lur­ing of any youth with prom­ise of high pay­ing jobs in the busi­ness is false, base­less and con­cocted.

It is a fact that some of the trainees af­ter the train­ing con­tinue their as­so­ci­a­tion with the busi­ness as pur­chasers of ready-made garments at whole­sale rate which they in turn sell at re­tail price in the open mar­ket. The profit made by them is their own. They are charged only for the garments sup­plied to them at whole­sale rate which they sell on re­tail at a price fixed by them. The fail­ure of to suc­ceed in their own busi­ness is not my re­spon­si­bil­ity merely be­cause the train­ing was pro­vided by us. The suc­cess of one’s busi­ness de­pends on one’s own acu­men and not on any­one’s com­plaint that the goods if was sup­plied or the train­ing in it­self was sub­stan­dard .Be it per­ti­nent to men­tion here that there are many trainees who have ex­celled in busi­ness af­ter the train­ing and have flour­ished in their busi­ness.

It is also to deny that any tiered sys­tem of scheme of in­vest­ment was pro­vided to the trainees and there was also no scheme where any per­son was paid for re­fer­ring any can­di­date for train­ing. There was also no pol­icy or prom­ise to in­duct the trainees as em­ploy­ees in the busi­ness. The doc­u­ments re­lat­ing to my client busi­ness and the Agree­ment signed by the trainees, en­closed here­with, will show the ac­tual state of af­fairs.

I, there­fore deny all al­le­ga­tions made by the al­leged vic­tims re­gard­ing in­vest­ment of money in the busi­ness or of any prom­ise of em­ploy­ment in the busi­ness to the trainees. I ve­he­mently and cat­e­gor­i­cally deny re­ceiv­ing any money apart from the train­ing fees of Rs 1000/= from the trainees.

It may be men­tioned here that the pub­li­ca­tion of the ar­ti­cles re­lat­ing to the al­le­ga­tion in the news­pa­per and the so­cial me­dia with­out ver­i­fy­ing the true facts was un­war­ranted and a breach of faith and re­spon­si­bil­ity of the duty of the me­dia and this has ma­ligned the rep­u­ta­tion, name and good­will of my com­pany. As duty of the me­dia, both Kuensel news­pa­per and the Bhutanese news­pa­per have not pub­lished our clar­i­fi­ca­tion which we sent to them. I hope Busi­ness Bhutan Me­dia and Broad­cast­ing would look into pub­lish­ing our stand and clar­i­fi­ca­tion.

Lastly, my com­pany re­serves the right to seek dam­ages for defama­tion, an op­tion which I may choose to take re­course to in the near fu­ture against any per­son found to be li­able.
