The International Labour Organization (ILO) updates its World Employment and Social Outlook report in May 2024.

SEBI Sets Up Ad-hoc Committee To Review Ownership, Eco Structure Of Clearing Corporations (Current Affairs 6th June 2024)

ssc cgl classes near me  (Current Affairs 6th June 2024)

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has formed an Ad-hoc Committee to examine the ownership and economic structure of Clearing Corporations (CCs) and provide recommendations to guarantee that CCs function as robust, independent, and unbiased risk managers.

The ad hoc committee will be led by Usha Thorat, the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) former Deputy Governor from 2005 to 2010.


According to a 2018 study by the Committee on Review of Regulations and Relevant Circulars relating to Market Infrastructure Institutions (MIIs) chaired by R Gandhi (referred to as the Gandhi Committee), MII ownership should be diverse and broadly owned.

  • The committee identified that although most clearing firms in India are completely controlled by a single exchange, these firms, due to their role as risk-bearing Market Infrastructure Institutions (MIIs), ought to have a broader ownership structure.
  • Furthermore, recognizing the sensitive nature of clearing corporations (CCs) and their critical role in managing significant risks, the committee recommended a prohibition on listing these entities.
  • SEBI established guidelines for the ownership and governance structure of CCs.

It recommended that one or more stock exchanges own at least 51% of a recognized CC’s paid-up equity share capital. Individuals from India or outside cannot own more than 5% of a company’s paid-up equity share capital (v).Other categories (depository, banking, insurance, and their foreign counterparts, including foreign stock exchanges) may hold up to 15% of the paid-up equity share capital.

Key Points:

  • The Ad-hoc committee will investigate the potential of expanding the list of eligible investors entitled to hold shares in a clearing organization, as well as recommending categories of investors who can do so.
  • It will also look at the necessity to adjust the ownership limits of various entities in a clearing company.
  • The parent exchange now dominates the ownership structure of a clearing business, with all clearing firms subject to its regulatory jurisdiction being subsidiaries of their parent exchanges.
  • First, the Committee will convene to discuss the appropriate financial structure for a clearing company. During this discussion, they will explore various options to ensure the clearing company’s financial independence and stability.
  • Following this exploration, the Committee will then formulate and present proposals that effectively achieve these goals.
