Offer for Sale (OFS) by Non Promoters permitted

Revising its OFS regulations, in line with board approval in June, The Securities & Exchange Board of India (SEBI) said that the OFS mechanism would now be available to top 200 companies by market capitalization in any of the last four completed quarters. So far, top-100 companies were allowed to tap this fast-track route, while only promoter shareholders could sell their shares. Following the changes, any non-promoter shareholder with at least 10 per cent stake in eligible companies would be allowed to offload shares through OFS route.
