With the disposal of the appeal, August 2015 order attained finality and the Jhunjhunwala was bound to comply with the order, Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) said.

In a fresh order passed on Thursday, Sebi said "Noticee (Jhunjhunwala) has completely disregarded the directions of Sebi order August 2015 and... attracts penalty".

Accordingly a fine of Rs 5 lakh was imposed on him.

In a two separate orders, Sebi imposed a fine of Rs 5 lakh on Prakash Varma and Rs 3 lakh on Ventura Securities for violating Stock Brokers norms.
