BharatPe performance under Shashvat Nakrani

He rode the company to a unicorn valuation of over $3 billion, taking it from a 550 million enterprise. Questions concerning the company’s enormous losses surrounded BharatPe’s recent performance. Despite this, the financial statistics for the year 2023 are encouraging under Shashvat’s leadership. From 321 crores in FY22 to 904 crores in FY23, it increased by 182%. The post-tax loss has dropped from 5594 crores to 886 crores. The number of loans that the company has helped with has increased by 129%.

SUE-PERNOVA battle with Ashneer Grover

The Grovers’ reported departure from BharatPe was prompted, in large part, by financial irregularities that BharatPe allegedly discovered. In early 2022, BharatPe accused charges of financial mismanagement and misconduct. The enterprise fired Madhuri Jain in February and her husband Ashneer left in March of 2022. The finance start-up BharatPe filed a defamation suit against them but the court gave it little attention and ultimately decided not to grant any redress. The case was valued at 88.7 INR. In its appeal, BharatPe has also requested information about Madhuri Jain Grover’s and Ashneer Grover’s bank accounts and assets. The Grovers’ legal team responded to the application’s admission by telling the court that their client is not required to provide financial documents or other information on their assets unless the court issues a judgement mandating their submission.

Ashneer Grover pays fine

While the Grovers were requesting access to BharatPe’s audit reports, the court ordered the corporation to reply. The claims were responded to by Ashneer, who stated that all GST transactions at the financial firm BharatPe were known to the finance and legal teams. Additionally, he filed a perjury suit against Shashvat Nakrani, co-founder of BharatPe. Ashneer Grover, the estranged co-founder of BharatPe, apologised before the Delhi High Court for the social media statements in which he attacked his former company. After reviewing the case, Justice Rekha Palli found Grover’s behaviour to be “appalling” and fined him INR 200,000 for disobeying the court’s earlier order prohibiting the use of defamatory words by either side against the other.

The battle continues Between Shashvat Nakrani and Grover

Post that the original founders of BharatPe filed another lawsuit against Ashneer. Shashvat stated that Ashneer Grover purchased 3,192 shares from Bhavik Koladiya and him, cofounders of BharatPe, when he joined the business in 2018, three months after Ashneer submitted the statement. With 2,447 shares purchased from Nakrani and 745 from Koladiya, among others. It was agreed that Grover would pay Nakrani 24,470 and Koladiya 7,450 Indian rupees. But according to the lawsuit, Nakrani is claiming that Grover should return the shares because he did not pay for the transaction. The current value of one share, however, is an astounding 4 lakh INR.
