Featured in

Dr. M. S. Sahoo and Sumit Agrawal in the Business Standard have analyzed the need for adjudicatory discipline in the frameworks of Market Infrastructure Institutions (MIIs) and the need of replicating the good practices of SEBI adjudication mechanism. Securities Appellate Tribunal (SAT) has also recently nudged MIIs in this regard and it is time for SEBI and other market regulators to ensure fair financial market outcome and ensure the market integrity.
MIIs (𝘌𝘹𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘴 – 𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘤𝘬, 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘮𝘰𝘥𝘪𝘵𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘤𝘶𝘳𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘺, 𝘊𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘊𝘰𝘳𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘋𝘦𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘪𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘴) initiates proceedings against an estimated 10,000 users / listed companies, every year, which end up with a variety of directions / penalties. Majority of such orders are not in the public domain on NSE IndiaBSEIndiaMetropolitan Stock Exchange of India Ltd.Multi Commodity Exchange of India Ltd.National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL)CDSL – Central Depository Services India Ltd and website of other MIIs.
