SEBIย has recently issued a circular to extend the framework of QSBs to encompass more stockbrokers, to safeguard the interest of investors and for building trust in securities market. Previously,ย SEBIย had outlined 4 criteria for designating a stockbroker as a QSB on an annual basis and subsequently, stock exchanges had notified a list of 15 stock brokers as QSBโ€™s.
ย 
The revised framework for classifying a stockbroker as a QSB includes additional parameters and outlines the procedure for identifying such brokers. Parameters (e) to (g) are in addition to the existing 4 parameters (a) to (d).

ย 
a) Total number of active clients of the stock broker;
b) Total assets of clients available with the stock broker;
c) Trading volumes of the stock broker (excluding the proprietary trading volume);
d) End of day margin obligations of all clients of a stock broker (excluding the proprietary margin obligation in all segments);
e) Proprietary trading volumes of the stock broker;
f) Compliance score of the stock broker; and
g) Grievance redressal score of the stock broker.

ย 
For each stock broker, the percentage (%) of a particular parameter compared to the aggregate of the respective parameter summed across all stockbrokers shall be calculated. Stock brokers with a total sum of individual (%) of the parameters mentioned at points (a) to (e), greater than or equal to 6.25, shall be identified as QSBs. For point (f), all stockbrokers (up to a maximum of 5) shall be considered QSBs if their individual compliance score is equal to or more than 2%. Similarly, for point (g), all stockbrokers (up to a maximum of 5) shall be considered QSBs if their individual grievance redressal score is equal to or more than 5%.
ย 
These values shall be calculated annually, with the revised list of QSBs jointly released by stock exchanges in consultation withย SEBI. QSBs that no longer qualify will continue to adhere to the enhanced obligations and responsibilities for an additional period of 3 FYs or as determined by Market Infrastructure Institutions (MIIs) in consultation withย SEBI.
ย 
The circular also provides provisions for stockbrokers to voluntarily seek designation as QSBs, even if they wouldn’t qualify based on the specified parameters.
ย 
The parameters mentioned at points (a) to (e) shall be applicable from June 1st of the subsequent year, while those at points (f) and (g) shall be applicable from September 1st of the subsequent year.
