Subsequent to the judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court dated February 01, 2001 all Exchanges were advised vide letter dated March 19, 2001 to inform their members to pay fees based on turnover, payable under Regulation 10 of SEBI ( Stock Brokers & Sub-Brokers ) Regulations 1992 immediately. Further as directed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the said judgement, SEBI amended the SEBI (Stock Brokers & Sub-brokers) Regulations 1992 vide notification dated February 20, 2002 to incorporate the recommendations of the Expert Committee appointed for interpretation of turnover.

Following the judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court, SEBI received representations from the brokers in their individual capacities as well as their representative capacity. The representations were considered by SEBI and vide circular ref SMD/Policy/Cir-07/2002 dated March 28, 2002, the Exchanges were advised to bring to the notice of their members that fees payable to SEBI should be remitted in conformity with the regulations.

Though the brokers were legally bound to pay the fees as per the regulations, vide clause (v) of Part A of the said circular, it was also informed that those brokers, who had not paid fees, should pay atleast 50% of the principal due in the cash market and give an undertaking to pay the balance fees within a period of two years along with interest in the format as given in the Annexure C of the said circular.
