In six separate and similarly-worded orders, Sebi’s whole-time member Rajeev Kumar Agarwal said, “Failure to redress investor grievances by a listed company adversely affects the confidence of investors in the securities market.”

The companies are barred from buying selling or otherwise dealing in the securities market directly or indirectly till they obtain SCORES authentication and resolves all the investor grievances pending against them, the orders said.

In a separate order, the regulator disposed of complaint against Hilton Intermediates of alleged non-compliance to SCORES norms after finding that the firm is under liquidation.

Launched in June 2011, SCORES provides a centralised database of all investor complaints. Online forwarding of complaints to the listed companies concerned and upload of their action taken reports are done through this mechanism.

It also helps investors view, track and follow up the action taken on their grievances. The online redressal system has significantly helped in reducing the processing time of complaints.
