Sahara India Refund Portal Launched: Empowering Depositors to Reclaim Their Money

The central government has introduced the CRCS-Sahara Refund Portal, a groundbreaking platform aimed at assisting depositors associated with Sahara Group cooperative societies in reclaiming their funds. This initiative seeks to address the long-standing issue of pending refunds and provide relief to countless depositors who have been waiting for their money to be returned.

Who Can Benefit from the Portal?

Genuine depositors who are part of the Sahara Group’s cooperative societies mentioned earlier can now take advantage of the Sahara Refund Portal. By logging into the dedicated portal and completing the online application form, depositors can submit their claims for a seamless refund process. It is essential for depositors to ensure a smooth processing of their claims by uploading all the required documents, having an Aadhaar-linked mobile number, and providing accurate bank account details.

While the Refund Portal of Sahara is not accessible on the Ministry of Cooperation’s website (, it is expected to become functional soon.

Submitting Claims via the Sahara Refund Portal

Depositors associated with Sahara Group’s cooperative societies can conveniently access the Sahara Refund Portal to submit their claims. By completing the online application form and providing the necessary information, depositors initiate the process of reclaiming their funds. The portal has been designed to streamline the verification of claim applications, which will be undertaken by the Sahara Group of Co-operative Societies within 30 days of submission. Following the verification process, applicants will receive timely updates on their claim status either through a text message or directly on the portal within 15 days.

Expected Claim Processing Time

Efficiency and promptness are the core objectives of the Sahara Refund Portal. The claim processing timeline is estimated to take approximately 45 days, during which depositors can expect their claims to be processed diligently. It is important to note that applicants must consolidate all their claims related to the four societies into a single claim application form, ensuring accuracy and completeness.

Notable Features and Phases of Refund Disbursement

One of the remarkable aspects of the Sahara Refund Portal is that there are no fees associated with submitting the online form. This eliminates any financial burden on the depositors during the refund process. At the strating phase, a total of Rs.5000 crore will be distributed. However, each depositor will receive an initial amount of Rs 10,000 during this phase, subject to the success of the initial disbursement.

Union Minister Amit Shah said that around 4 crore depositors are eligible to receive upto Rs. 10,000 in first phase. The success of this phase will pave the way for subsequent disbursements and further measures to address the claims of depositors with larger amounts of money stuck in Sahara Group’s cooperative societies.


The launch of the Sahara India Refund Portal marks a significant milestone in providing financial justice to depositors associated with Sahara Group cooperative societies. With its streamlined process, user-friendly interface, and commitment to transparency, the portal aims to provide depositors with a hassle-free experience in reclaiming their hard-earned money. By leveraging technology and adhering to strict timelines, the portal ensures that the funds are returned to the genuine depositors within a reasonable timeframe. This initiative showcases the government’s dedication to resolving the long-pending issue of refunds and providing much-needed relief to depositors who have anxiously awaited the return of their funds.
