Sebi amends debenture trustee regulations

The norms comes following recommendations of a Sebi- appointed task force that examined the “challenges in performing the obligations and duties as Debenture Trustees (DTs) to protect the interests of the debenture holders”.

The amendments seek to fortify the existing provisions to enable the DTs to perform the task of securing the interest of investors and also harmonise the existing provisions with those of the Companies Act, 2013. Earlier, several provisions in the DT Regulations had reference to the erstwhile Companies Act, 1956, which have been repealed and replaced by the new companies law.

Among various changes, Sebi has changed the definition of principal officer, who is entrusted with overseeing the activities of the DT, to include Key Management Personnel who in turn can be the CEO, MD, company secretary, whole-time Director, CFO or such other officer.

Earlier, a person could not act as a DT in case of any issue of debentures by an associate. Now, a person cannot be appointed as a DT if he beneficially owns shares in the company, is a promoter, director or KMP or an employee of the company or its holding, subsidiary or associate company, Sebi said in a notification.
