On July 21, the Securities Appellate Tribunal (SAT) provided partial relief to news broadcaster NDTV and its promoters against orders passed by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) for alleged violation of Takeover Code and disclosure regulations. The tribunal also slashed penalties imposed by the market regulator terming them ‘excessive’.
“While declaring the terms of the personal loan between the NDTV founders and a company named Vishvapradhan Commercial Private Limited (VCPL) as completely legitimate, the SAT said, “the transaction does not acquire direct or indirect control of NDTV. The intent and language of the loan agreement and call option agreements read with the SAST Regulations makes it clear that there is no direct or indirect control of NDTV by VCPL,” the company said in exchange filing.
