It is hereby clarified that payment towards the application fee can be made in the form of consolidated demand draft in favour of SEBI, along with a list of particulars of the persons on behalf of whom the applications and the payments are made. This would be deemed to be in compliance with Regulation 12 of the captioned Regulations.
