    When I spoke to Mitsu on phone, he was also saying that some registrants could transfer out

    No one at NIXI appears to be bothered about the problems of .in domain registrants

    While .IN registry is sending warnings to select registrars for selling/ auctioning .IN domains and even suspended some accounts like this even if some registrants may be suffering. there are many .IN accredited registrars who continue to openly auction .IN domains orsell competing domains at lower price! Check this link https://uniregistry.com/?market=1

    Also check CentralNIC which owns www.internetbs.net, a market place for Chinese domainers and actively re-sells .IN at very high prices! They also own a portfolio of over 37,000names. According to their Annual report, "CentralNIC trades approximately 37,500 premium domains!

    The Mitsu suspension was allegedly due to a personal grudge

    Agreed. That is really so wrong. There needs to be a stronger check on defaulters rom NIXI's end.

    In India government employees like some of the those in NIXI are very selfish and there is no way a domain investor can ensure that their employees resolve the matter at the earliest . I spoke to a person from the legal cell, he was least interested, he is anyway getting a monthly indian government salary
    Write to other domain investors so that the matter is highlighted

    Does someone know something about Mitsu case?

    I sent a message asking information to .in Registry some days ago and I got the general answer below without any useful details.

    I also sent a message to Nixi but I have not get a reply so far.

    I have an offer from a buyer (low xxxx USD) but I can't sell the domain because I can't transfer it o_O :confused: :mad:


    REGISTRY ANSWER

    Dear Registrant,

    Thank you for contacting .IN Registry Relations.

    In response to your email below, it is informed that by order dated 20.10.2017 NIXI has terminated the accreditation of MITSU Inc. In view of the dispute between NIXI and MITSU Inc is pending, NIXI is not in a position to renew or transfer or update contact details in the domains.

    Please understand that your domain is safe in the NIXI holding account and will not get deleted. Actions relating to renewal, transfer or updating contact details will be carried out by NIXI only on the orders of the Arbitral Tribunal.

    You are requested to view the Important Notification for Registrants of de-accredited registrar MITSU Inc published in www.nixi.in and www.registry.in.

    Please note that NIXI is taking all measures necessary to protect the rights of the innocent registrants. As the matter is sub-judice, NIXI will take necessary steps as per the orders of the Arbitral Tribunal.

    We request your patience and understanding in this regard.

    Any news? I got the same answer above from NIXI.

    I still have an offer for one domain, I told the potential buyer to wait till May because I thought that the dispute would be resolved in May but it does not seem so :(

    Thanks for any information.

    The case is still ongoing. It's moving forward, but slowly.

    Here's the latest development -

    http://delhihighcourt.nic.in/dhcqrydisp_o.asp?pn=139772&yr=2018

    It looks like Mitsu's counsel claimed that the conduct of NIXI "was not bonafide and was intended to delay the proceedings."

    The court seems inclined to agree and says that this grievance "appears justified."

    I would think NIXI would want a quick resolution to this, but perhaps not. In any case, the matter has still not really progressed since Christmas.
