The Sony Liv series named Scam 1992 portrayed the very first billion-dollar scam in India regarding a stockbroker named Harshad Mehta. While Harshad died in the year 2001 in police custody itself, his family was trapped in quite a number of legal battles.
All the actors gave a top-notch performance in the series including Pratik Gandhi, Hemant Kher, Anjali Barot, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Jai Upadhyay, and many others. After watching the series one must have wondered about the whereabouts of Harshad Mehta’s family.
After almost 27 years of legal battle, the income tax tribunal finally removed almost the whole tax demand of ₹2.014 crores on Harshad Mehta, his wife Jyoti, and a brother named Ashwin in February 2019.
Harshad Mehta wife Jyoti Mehta also won a legal battle against a stockbroker named Kishore Janani and Federal Bank
They probably owed ₹6 crores to Harshad Mehta since the year 1992. Jyoti was authorised to receive the whole amount along with 18% interest. That is around 500 crores.
Harshad Mehta brother Ashwin Mehta, on the other hand, went for a degree in law.
In his mid-50s Ashwin Mehta is a busy lawyer today practising in Mumbai High Court and also Supreme Court. He handled several court cases alone and paid approximately ₹1,700 crores to banks to clear his brother’s alleged name.
Ashwin Mehta was the well-regarded attorney for Harshad and also a stockbroker in his firm.
Although the case against Harshad Mehta was subsided immediately after his death in the year 2001, Ashwin was fighting the legal battle until the year 2018 when he was acquitted by a special court in a case of duping the State Bank of India.
Harshad Mehta’s Son Atur Mehta prefers to stay away from the general public eye.
According to a report by Business Standard, Atur Mehta bought a 23% stake, quite significant, in square deal Filaments, a Bombay Stock Exchange-listed textile company.

Atur also doesn’t give interviews and stay away from any public appearences. The man prefers to possess his face unknown. Atur Mehta last photo is from 2001 during Harshad Mehta’s funeral.
