U K Sinha, Sebi’s Chairman said, “The short point I want to make is that if you are investing somewhere, you should rest assured that SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India) and the exchanges are looking into the corporate governance practices of the company very seriously.”
The Sebi chief also said that an investor looks at various parameters before making an investment decision and “these parameters could be the performance of our economy, the performance of a sector and the performance of the particular company”, he added.
“As per the latest World Bank report, India’s ranking in investor protection has improved from 49 in 2012 to 34 in 2013 and now we are at 7th place”, he said.
“Being ranked seven, we are ahead of some of the biggest markets in the world because we have been able to take some decisions that many others have not been able to do,” he said.
