In its circular from October 2017, SEBI had laid down the procedure to be followed by stock exchanges in case of non-compliance with Minimum Public Shareholding norms w.r.t listed companies, their promoters and directors.

The measures to be taken by stock exchanges included fine per day of non-compliance, freezing of shareholding of promoter / promoter group, prohibition of promoter / promoter group / directors from holding any new position as director in listed companies, increased fine beyond 1 year of non-compliance, compulsory delisting, etc.

Through today’s circular, SEBI has advised stock exchanges to not take any penal action during this period and also withdraw any action already taken.
