Compliance is the state of being in accordance with the relevant provisions and established guidelines framed by regulator(s).

Our role is to take efforts towards facilitating our members function in accordance with the provisions of Securities Contract (Regulation) Act, 1956 and Rules framed there-under; SEBI (Stock Brokers and Sub Brokers) Regulations, 1992 and Circulars issued there-under and the Rules, Bye-laws, Regulations and Circulars of the Exchange and the Clearing Corporation.

Regulatory compliance is a prevalent business concern because of an ever-increasing number of regulations and a fairly wide-spread lack of understanding about what is required for a member to be in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements.

In order to educate the members on the salient features of compliance with relevant regulatory stipulations, the Exchange has put in order, a Compliance Manual.
