2. Compliance with the requirement of formulating and disclosing a dividend distribution policy on the website and in the annual reports of a company shall extend to the top 1000 listed entities based on market capitalization, instead of the present 500.

3. A listed entity shall be said to have complied with the requirement of uploading separate audited financial statements prior to the annual general meeting if – consolidated/unaudited financial statements of the foreign subsidiary are placed on the website of the listed entity (depending on the requirement of the law of the country in which it is incorporated).
