Stock Market: No Fresh Sub-Broker Registration, Now Only Authorized Person
SEBI has taken the final decision to discontinue sub broker category or sub broker business model across India. The main reason behind this decision is to lower the compliance cost. The sub brokers act as intermediaries is in the capital market, due to which the cost increases.
There will not be any fresh issue of sub-broker registration, but those who already have opted sub-broker or are already a sub-broker will have to migrate Authorized Person business model, by end of current fiscal year, till March 31, 2019. The existing sub brokers must clear all the pending renewal fees to Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). The market regulator has taken this action to reduce the extra burden and compliance cost.
But still there is no difference between the sub broker and the authorized person model, in terms of their operative role.
If You are already a Sub-Broker:
The current sub-brokers will have to register with the market regulator and migrate to Authorized Person business model, by fulfilling all the terms and conditions. This new process will make it easier in dealing with securities and assisting the investors.
According to SEBI, all the pending sub broker applicationfor registration will be returns to their respective stock exchanges, which will be further connected by the applicant.
Any existing sub broker not eligible or fulfill the criteria to become Authorized Person in derivative segment, they might have to register in cash segment to run their business.
The existing sub brokers who do not want to migrate to Authorized Person business model would be asked to surrender their sub broker registration with SEBI, after 31st March 2019.
