65-year-old Roy, who was sent to jail on March 4 this year for non-refund of over Rs 20,000 crore to depositors, was asked by the court to pay Rs 10,000 crore to get bail, out of which Rs 5,000 crore in cash and rest of the amount in bank guarantee.
The Sahara group, however, had been claiming that it has already repaid money to 93 per cent investors.
The apex court also asked SEBI on how it is verifying the genuine depositors and allowed it to publish advertisements in newspaper so that investors can claim their money.
Earlier, Roy had submitted that he may not be able to raise Rs 5,000 crore by selling assets situated in the country and urged the court to allow him to sell off overseas assets for which negotiations are going on.
Sahara has so far raised Rs 3,117 crore which has been deposited with the market regulator.
