SEBI: New Capital Market Disclosure Norms

The Securities & Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has proposed that a listed company should inform the stock exchanges all events which are 'price sensitive', and have bearing on performance or operation of the listed entity, unless otherwise expressly stated, within 1 day from the event. The Companies will have to explain the delay if such disclosures are not made in a day. Some of the events listed by SEBI as price-sensitive include commencement of commercial production, change in the general character or nature of business, material capacity addition or material product launch, issuance or forfeiture of securities, all types of agreement, disruption of operations, litigation, revision in ratings and outcome of board meetings, among others.
