Sebi gives 45-day relaxation to companies for filing Q4 results amid Covid-19 concerns

NEW DELHI: Markets regulator Sebi on Thursday gave relaxation of 45 days to companies for filing fourth quarter financial results and one-month extension to file results for 2019-20.
Besides, relaxation of one month has been given for filing quarterly corporate governance report and three week each for shareholding patten and statement of investor complaint reports, the regulator said in a circular.
The decision has been taken in the wake of coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in many restrictions, including free movement of people, thereby hampering businesses and day-to-day functioning of companies.
“Development arising due to the spread of the virus warrants the need for temporary relaxation in compliance requirement of listed entities,” Sebi noted.
