Leading stock exchange BSE today said it has set up investor service centres at eight cities, including Bhubaneswar, Kochi and Dehradun, that would look into grievances as well as function as a facility for arbitration procedures for investors.
Other centres have been established in Goa, Guwahati, Jammu, Ranchi and Raipur.
With these, BSE now has regional investor service centres at 22 places across the country.
"In order to provide ease of access to investors and as directed by Sebi, the exchange has set up investor service centres at... Additional locations," BSE said in a notice.
"The exchange will provide various facilities to the investors from respective geographies such as query handling, redressal of grievances against trading members and arbitration mechanism," it added.
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) in July 2013 had asked bourses to increase the number of investor service centres, with a view to extending reach of arbitration facilities to the investors.
Among others, BSE centres are also available in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Jaipur.
