SAT -1

The Securities Appellate Tribunal (“𝐒𝐀𝐓”), an appellate body against SEBI, IRDAI, Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA), Stock Exchanges and Depositories has only one non-judicial member as against a full Bench, crippling its functioning and resulting in significant delays and disruptions. Industry stakeholders are concerned that the continued absence of a complete Bench could adversely affect the fundraising and expansion plans of companies involved in ongoing litigation.

The former presiding officer of SAT, Justice Tarun Agarwala, former Chief Justice of Meghalaya High Court vacated the office in December 2023 post his retirement.

In this background Mr. Sumit Agrawal, Managing Partner of Regstreet Law Advisors and former SEBI Officer, offered his insights to Business Standardfollows:
