MCA, Sebi sign MoU for data exchange for better surveillance

Mumbai: The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) and the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for data exchange between the two organisations.

The MoU comes in the wake of increasing need for surveillance in the context of corporate frauds affecting important sectors of the economy, the regulator said in a release.

The MoU will facilitate the sharing of data and information between Sebi and MCA on an automatic and regular basis, and will also enable sharing of specific information such as details of suspended companies, delisted companies, shareholding pattern from Sebi and financial statements filed with the registrar by corporates, returns of allotment of shares, audit reports relating to corporates.

The MoU will ensure that both MCA and Sebi have seamless linkage for regulatory purposes.
