Market watchdog Sebi has decided to impose a penalty on trading members for modifying client codes for non-institutional trades. The exchange has been asked to credit such amounts to investor protection funds. Present regulatory norms allow a trading member to modify client codes post execution of the trade only to rectify a genuine error that had occurred while entering a client code. According to the Sebi circular, a trading member will have to pay a penalty of 2% of the value of the non-institutional trade if such trade accounts for more than 5% of the total turnover of non-institutional trades. Otherwise, the penalty would be lower at 1%.
