It is a stupid action by some corrupted police officials who may have illegal relationships with fraud money chain companies cheated crores in kerala. Amway is doing legal business since 1998 in India. It offers 100% money back guarantee for both business opportunity & products, then where is the question of cheating?

really amway products are extremely high and it s not affordable to poor or middle class peoples. they must decrease their products rate.. so many genuine and brilliant products are there than amway products.. in cost also they are very low and affordable..

An investigation against any police complaint is genuine but raiding a reputed company will definitely tarnish the image of a great company who gives opportunity for a poor man also to own his own business and make a living. Any individual or a group making any fraudulent activities should not be blamed on a company.

Not only police may be defense force can raid at amway office they wont find anything illegal. There are some illegal elements in States they want bad reputation of this company. This company has been in more than 80 countries over 5 decades some of you have not born then. So do not try to defeat this compnay. You JUST can not. you are so poor to do so. Let see if you can stop it.

Utter foolishness by Kerala Police so far.. I dont know why our medias are trying to state that this action is the ultimate and nobody is going to survive.I feel pity on Kerala Police(somebody thinks that it is Scotlandyard police) This is just a starting and we have court and all. Amway is a global giant having business in over 80 countries in last 52 yrs and they know how to handle this kind of dramas. Let us wait and see.

AMWAY'S TOP OFFICIALS IN DELHI & IN SOUTHERN REGION (BANGALORE) ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS ACTION AS THEY HAVE SLEPT OVER ONE MONTH NOT TAKING ANY ACTION AGAINST THE PARTICULAR PERSON WHO STARTED ALL THIS.

Let them prove their balls if they have any. Kerala Police think, they are the only people in the world as police ,and all others in 80 + countires, where AMWAY operate, with police uniform are fools. I pitty Kerala. They won't grow and will allow no one to grow. Meida a is creating a culture that is not for good. Amway has nothing to loose even if they stop the business in Kerala. There is no wonder why God sent all the diseases to Kerala which no other state in India has.

its horrible act by kerala police. it shows they do not hav any knowledge of economics. they understand only traditional method of selling. they do not hav any idea of 2nd aspect of the business ie direct selling. amway has a big manufacturing plants. operating in more than 80 countries. the only thing which creates problem in investigation agencies ie direct selling. buts its an ethical, legal n globally accepted way of business. kerala police will regret.

amway will fly high like a finix from ashes
nobody can hide the truth for long amway will survive by its way of action which is different from other illegal pyramid scheme
some predetermined people looks to state something and want to show they are clever
AMWAY works in 100 countries and all other states of india it is illegal ONLY IN KERALA

Tom Zachariah said...

More than the act of Police on Amway, what is more horrifying and shameful is the way police is harassing thousands of families involved in this business. They are doing everything to damage the reputation of leaders like Mr Sajeev Nair who is a well known author, motivational speaker and who has been helping the lakhs of people to transform their lives, ever outside the Amway circle. Its such a sad state of affairs.

Anandanarayan, IT Professional, Cochin said...

I agree to Tom. I am a regular reader of Sajeev Nair's columns in Dhanam and other publications. I was shocked to see the news that even he has to seek an anticipatory bail for getting protected from the police....and all for doing a business in Kerala. Such a shame for this state

I'm no one to say the police is corrupted or any political party behind the stage.. But just think with in 13 years, this company has provided income to thousands of people and its sure that it will be the main income source for lakhs of people in Kerala 10 more years down the line... Unfortunately behind every history there comes a revolt..

Let the regulators please understand what is chain and money circulation schehme. How these works and what is THE Act 1976 prized chit and money circulation scheme.and How amway is different from all this. Amway is being taken as a full time career and business by so many highly qualified persons such as IITians, Software prefessional, MBAs, highly successful doctors who were already well settled in life. It is not easy to build this business and requires lot of work, sacrifice etc. Who said there is no work in amway and can make money easily. Just come out and build the business and you will understand the effort it takes to build this business. How the company is paying the money the distributors. The money saved through eliminating the middle man will be given as commission. No one who had used the products as advice will find it costly. It is cost effective. For eg . a car wash priced at Rs. 209 for 500ml. can be used for 100 washes i.e per wash it cost 2rupees. and similarly there are lot of comparision which can be made against othere product. A quality should be compared with the same quality of other product. For eg. a Maruti 800 cannot be compared to a Benz though both have 4 wheels and both are called as CAR. Before saying something understand the facts and comment. Just read a book PROMISES TO KEEP AND THE DREAM THAT NEVER DIES. READ THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF RICH DEVOS AND JAYVAN ANDELS THE AMWAY FOUNDERS. GO THROUGH THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMITTEE REPORT ON AMWAYS GENUINITY. A ILLEGITIMATE COMPANYS PRESIDENT CANNOT BECOME THE PRESIDENT FOR UNITED STATES CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY IE. STEPHEN ANDEL. tHIS COMPANY IS A LEGAL COMPANY AND SURE THEY WILL COME OUT WITH FLYING COLORS.
It is high time that some legislation has to be passed by the Govt.of India like other countries such as Singpoere and China etc where there is separate Act on Direct selling, to avoid other unscruplous companies come and spoil the market which has indirect inpact on lot of people who are building this business all over the country.

Felix Ignatius Xavier said...

Nobody can spoil the reputation of Amway. Kerela Police, by their action, think that they are super intelligent people, except to prove that they are really illiterate about the business model.Some media have presented this company as an illegal pyramid scheme.I personally request these people to sit down for the full marketing plan presentation.

WE MUST HAVE A LAW TO PENALISE THE GOVT.OFFICIAL (NOT THE MECHINERAY) IF THEY CAN'T PROVE THEIR ALLIGATIONS AGAINST ANY ESTABLISHMENT OR PERSONS. AND THE MONETARY LOSS TO THE CONCERNED PARTIES MUST BE RECOVERED FROM SUCH OFFICIALS ONLY.

I believe God has given us a wonderful opportunity to make kerala the no.1 Amway market in India. We all know the Nutrilite brand became the best selling catagory of Amway Kerala after one Drug controller raided Amway Cochin office, years back. TOUGH TIMES NEVER LAST; BUT TOUGH PEOPLE DO.

AMWAY is a good company..its got good products...it has been operating for more than 50 years...but in india the law for direct selling is not sufficient enough..and people drag amway into money circulation jus bcos theres an opportunity to increase ur franchise strength(sponsoring distributors)..but the main fault with amway is getting support from other organisations or what people call the system..system money is where the fraud lies.. systems destroyed amway business in all countries...u take australia america china systems destroyed amway...now china and korea do not have so called system ie simply the reason why amway is growing in china. people spent money for systems rather than products ..system owner get rich at the cost o poor distributer..

Nobody can stop Amway. Greatest business opportunity in the planet. There are so many examples that even very low profile people like street sweepers achieve financial freedom (and that is for their 3 generations to follow) if they put their consistent and persistent hard work.

Kerala police is corrupt. Traditional marketeers did this filthy job for sure.

NIIT franchise branches are run by people other than the owners , Mc Donalds , Coffe day, ETC are also net working franchisies .In AMWAY each individual is registering directly to the company with a sponsor and it is a franchise business. Like any one get a registration card from a margin free market , he /she can get a registration from AMWAY ,which remits each penny of sale tax to the Indian Government.

Kerala Police are fools. Has commaon man ever benifitted in Kerala. We Malayalees are famous only for one thing, pulling others down. Let us really change ourselves. One Mr. sundaravadivelu said that products are costly. should i say that products are not costly, but comman man in india does not have teh capacity to buy as most governments are corrupt. Can you go a Mercedes showroom and ask them to give you a car at teh price of MAruti. silly man and silly people. have gust to help people. anyways KErala is famous for all sorts of corruption.

50 years back, two friends started a business with 1 product in a car shed. Now they have grown in 90 countries providing more than 10000 products and making a turnover of 50000 crores in a year. If they r not genuine, or if the products are not worthy, how can they grow this much. this is a genuine business. I dont say any thing. YOU DECIDE BY YOURSELF.

Now it has been removed and Amway is the only Direct Selling Company that's being operated in Kerala. Amway has faced these sort of issues even in China & now there is no other Direct Selling company other than Amway in China. I'm a person who love my country and wish Indians to buy world class products at feasible cost. Not the 8th quality tea, HUL offers Clinic Plus as well as Dove (a low & high quality apart from other shampoos like Sunsilk, Clear, etc). Why they should differentiate the quality? Do you think Dabour & Mysore sandal are able to offer the best quality? There no money for adding people in Amway. It’s only for selling products.

I Know Kerala People are Smarter people, they never do mistakes. But, Kerala Police has done unbelievebly non sense.

Now, Always Genuine People will have legal problems infront of the Govt. Laws. Commonly Uncommon people(they think they are genius & others are fools)will not have sense to even understand the difference between Direct Selling(Product Selling) & Money Chain (Speculation). Our Kerala Police are not Smarter infront of the entire World Laws. They will understand their stupidity of raids in AMWAY Offices & also they will prove their foolishness to entire World.

I am a Busniness Owner, I thank Kerala Police for making advertising AMWAY & They will promote/broadcast that this is legal business shortly and anybody can do with small conditions if any.

Let it be any conditions, Amway is global company operating in 90 Countries they will have seen all stringent rules in other countries also. This is not new to AMWAY

The conclusion is this Kerala Police raid is going to MAKE "AMWAY More Stronger than Ever"
