In particular, a negative review/story against Ravi Gaikwad – Rendezvous Sports World Limited which potentially hurt business and reputation. Here is an excerpt from that report –

IPL Row: Who is Rendezvous’ Ravi Gaikwad

Remember Sachin Tendulkar’s Ferrari and the controversial vehicle registration tax waiver it got from Maharashtra’s Regional Transport Office (RTO)? It was Ravindra Gaikwad — one of the owners of Rendezvous Sports World, that has controversially bought the Kochi IPL franchise — who, then as an assistant regional transport officer at RTO’s Andheri office, got all the necessary clearances for the red Ferrari and facilitated a huge tax exemption.

Later, the state government declared a tax waiver, which validated the actions of Mr Ravi Gaikwad, 47. But the tryst with the Ferrari and its iconic owner — who himself drew some flak albeit short-lived for the tax waiver — taught the RTO official the tricks of the trade. And the trade, which essentially meant ensuring tax exemptions for all the big guns of cricket who dialled his number, seems to have spawned money for the Solapur-based Gaikwads.

“The Ferrari incident was a life-changing moment for Ravi Gaikwad, who was anyway a cricket enthusiast and aspired to make it big. Since then, he has been a key contact for many cricketers who win cars and bikes as prizes, but are clueless about how to land these costly things in India without attracting huge taxes. At the RTO level, Ravi Gaikwad has facilitated clearances and tax waiver or reduction for several cricketers and celebrities,” said a Solapur-based politician, who thoroughly knows the Gaikwads.

Shailendra Gaikwad, younger brother of Ravi Gaikwad, is known as Pradeep in Solapur, and according to a few Solapur residents ET spoke to, does not possess much business sense himself. But, it is the combo of Shailendra and cousin brother Satyajit (who was on all the news channels on Wednesday) who have forayed into the IPL. Father Kisanrao Gaikwad retired from the state’s irrigation department long back and mother Pushpa, in whose name Ravi Gaikwad has founded Pushpa Cricket Academy, that is actually the precursor of Rendezvous Sports, is a housewife.

The family also runs Pushp Autmotives, which sells M&M’s commercial vehicles at Solapur. Pushp Automotives was inaugurated by Sunil Gavaskar and Zaheer Khan. The Gaikwad family owns a 26% stake in Renezvous Sports World, a company Shailendra Gaikwad, who has been based in Mumbai, founded.

The Gaikwads, who originally hail from Umarga in Osmanabad district, own around 7 acres of farmland and their parents, who are said to be clueless about their sons’ business activities, still work at the farm themselves. Ravindra Gaikwad, who was serving at the Andheri RTO till his transfer to Beed in Marathwada in December 2009, has proceeded on long leave for obvious reasons. His role in a Rs 100-crore imported bike scam — this has no connection with cricketers — is still being probed by the state government.

In case you are one of the ‘beneficiaries’  listed in this report and are wondering what really happened, we suggest you look within. If it wasn’t you, or your associates, it is definitely the ‘Reputation’ or ‘SEO’ firm you had hired in the past. Perhaps it was your law firm. So, instead of blaming us for this article, you must grill your Reputation/SEO firm and look for answers. We are merely publishing the facts available on public database and have nothing against you personally. It is more than likely that the service you hired indulged in criminal methods to deliver results for you.

Soon after we published the first set of our investigation reports on fake DMCAs, we managed to generate interest from online media such as Techdirt, Adweek and Huffington Post. Some of the key stories included our revelations on Roosh V, Idea BuyerQnet , Tai Lopez ,Amira Nature Food, Grant Cardone and more. We also shared unpublished data and information with 3 different law agencies who looked into this scam.

And we got results. We dented this fake DMCA industry and made sure we act as deterrent to the rogue reputation firms indulged in these criminal practices. Here are some of the outcomes and changes we made possible with the help of several other citizen lawyers and agencies –

Fake Fraudulent DMCA might seem inconspicuous, until it’s you at the receiving end of this crime. This is not a prank. This is not an inconvenience. This is not random. These fake DMCA cases are calculated criminal schemes targeting very specific and rather important information/content. These hitjobs are usually against media, in order to help their client hide important information from public’s eye, all in the name of Reputation Management. Millions of dollars are spent doing this, and if no one wants to bring this topic to the fore, we will.

Our team will not constantly monitor and publish these reports on a DAILY basis without fail. And we do not plan to publish and forget. We will take constructive steps in order to expose the faces behind this scam, and to try and undo the damages. AND IF YOU INDEED PART OF THIS SCAM, WE WILL ENSURE THAT YOU GET WHAT’S COMING YOUR WAY.
