The court further said that small things also take time. You have to change the system. Only those persons who have lost their hard earned money will know.

“After investigation, how much amount has been repaid. You tell us. They cannot wait for 10 or 15 years. People in jail are enjoying the money,” the apex court said while seeking the status report from the Central agency by January 7.
