For the purpose of these User Terms (defined hereinafter), “you”, “your” or “User” refers to any natural or legal person (whether a registered user or otherwise) who accesses the Website, its contents and uses the services offered by Growpital on or through the Website.
Growpital is just a platform (read software/webapp) where different project entities, working in the agriculture domain, have listed their ownership fractions in the form of LLP Capital Contribution. The entities are registered as LLPs only, and no “Equities” are involved where SEBI’s regulation is required. For the purpose of collecting the amount, the project entities have prepared an Escrow Agreement with Growpital (Farm Silo Tech LLP) and also have an MoU in place for the same. As an investor/user when you invest through Growpital, you will become a partner and lender to these LLPs (as selected by you) and represent your investment. Your partnership stake in the LLP will represent the amount of investment (Capital Contribution and Loan) made by you. Growpital and the designated partners of these LLPs would be responsible for management of these Project Entities on behalf of investors/users. Growpital charges a commission from these Project Entities for providing them the platform. The Escrow Agreement ensures that the user gets the partnership in the project entity when the amount gets transferred to a particular entity and also ensures the distribution of profits, repayment of loan and other payouts given by the Project Entities to the partners. The investor/user signs a consent letter for becoming a partner to the respective LLP/Project Entity, when transferring the amount and signing of the consent letter should be considered as becoming a partner in the LLP for which the required filings will be done with RoC.
