This is the second time the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has extended the deadline. Initially, the rule was to come into force from July 1 and the same was extended till November 1.
Based on further feedback received from stakeholders, it has been decided that the rule will be applicable with effect from May 1, 2023, the regulator said in a circular.
