Addressing the concern amid coronavirus pandemic, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has given relaxation to the companies. The regulator has extended a month for filing quarterly corporate governance report amid the virus scare. “Developments arising due to the spread of the virus warrant the need for temporary relaxations in compliance requirements for listed entities,” SEBI said in a statement. Accordingly, SEBI has decided to grant certain relaxations from compliance stipulations specified under the SEBI Regulations, 2015 to listed entities, it added.
