NEW DELHI, Sept 5 (Reuters) - India’s capital market regulator on Wednesday said it would review an order tightening rules on foreign funds ownership by entities of Indian origin, after some fund managers said it could lead to massive dollar outflows.
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) said in a statement bit.ly/2oGZn19 that a panel headed by a former central bank deputy governor had held consultations on various issues and would give its recommendations.
“Based on these inputs, SEBI would review the matter and shortly take a holistic view,” the statement said.
In its order on know-your-customer norms issued in April, SEBI said a company majority owned by non-resident Indians or persons of Indian origin would not be allowed to invest as a foreign portfolio investor in the country. (Reporting by Abhirup Roy and Malini Menon; Editing by Krishna N. Das)
