Sebi has already approved the first phase of this move at the above board meeting. The new MTM threshold of 60 days on debt and money market securities has already taken effect.

The papers also showed that Sebi's move to raise the minimum investment limit for portfolio management schemes (PMS) from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 25 lakh was to dissuade retail investors from investing in such schemes.

“Since minimum investment limit has not been revised after 2002, have now become accessible to smaller retail investors, without the protection which is available to retail investors under the mutual fund framework. It is noteworthy that PMS are not meant for retails investors,” the agenda paper said.

Withdrawing the rights and bonus issue rights from optionally convertible securities and holders was following Sebi's Primary Market Advisory Committee (PMAC) recommendation that treating these instruments at par with compulsorily convertible debt securities was not appropriate.
