MANDATORY FILING OF INFORMATION WITH THE EXCHANGE IN ELECTRONIC MODE
Securities and Exchange Board of India has notified the SEBI (Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations, 2015 (Listing Regulations) on September 2, 2015.
Regulation 10 of the Listing Regulations which pertains to filing of information reads as follows:
- (1) The listed entity shall file the reports, statements, documents, filings and any other information with the recognised stock exchange(s) on the electronic platform as specified by the Board or the recognised stock exchange(s).
(2) The listed entity shall put in place infrastructure as required for compliance with sub-regulation (1).
It may be noted that BSE has made available to all listed entities, an online web portal for filing their various submissions / disclosure documents with the Exchange, by the name of “Listing Centre“(http://listing.bseindia.com). ‘Listing Centre’ provides a single point resource for filing compliances and tracking your past filings. It provides an instant confirmation of the filing done by the company.
Pursuant to the Regulation 10 (1) of the Listing Regulations, BSE has mandated the Listing Centre as the “Electronic Platform” for filing all filings and communication to be carried out by the Company.
Listed corporates may please note that filing of periodic compliances related to Shareholding Pattern (Regulation 31(1)) are now accepted in XBRL format also. Companies have to simply upload the same in either XML format (taxonomy is available) OR upload an Excel file in the specified format (available on Listing Centre) and our system would online, convert the same to an xml file and provide a confirmation upon successful conversion to the company.
Effective from December 1, 2015, those filings that are not filed with the Exchange through the Listing Centre are liable to be considered as non-submission and consequent non-compliance with the Regulations. Compliance filing for entities other than those listed on the Exchange may be done through Email to the designated ID i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Acceptance of disclosures through Fax and Physical Mode i.e. through hand delivery/ Post / courier are being discontinued.
Companies not having the user credentials for the Listing Centre may acquire the same by writing to email@example.com .
We request all our valued listed entities to please cooperate and help us to help you make your filing process with the exchange easier, more convenient and faster.
