FPIs ring alarm bells on Sebi ownership notice; Market regulator calls it "preposterous"

The sentiment was also affected after the foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) upped their ante against a circular issued by the market regulator, Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi), on beneficial ownership of offshore funds.

On April 10, SEBI modified the KYC norms applicable to Foreign Portfolio Investors. NRIs, OIC s and PIOs are now prevented from being "Beneficial Owners", or "in control", via the FPI route.

With a lobby of FPIs trying hard to get the proposed changes to KYC norms withdrawn, market regulator Sebi on Tuesday said it is "preposterous and highly irresponsible" to claim that $75 billion will move out of India because of the regulatory move.
