SEBI – Format for application to SEBI for opening of wholly owned subsidiaries or entering into joint ventures in other countries

(Applicable for Stock Brokers, Bankers to an Issue, Merchant Bankers, Registrar to an Issue and Share Transfer Agents, Underwriters, Depository Participants, Debenture Trustees and Credit Rating Agencies)

SEBI receives applications from intermediaries for granting NOCs for setting up joint ventures, subsidiaries etc. Depending on the information submitted by the intermediaries, SEBI seeks further information/clarifications. This process takes some time to grant such NOCs.

In order to streamline the entire process, a format has now been devised so that the intermediaries send all the relevant information at the time of application itself. This will enable SEBI to process the applications expeditiously.
