Capital markets regulator Sebi on Monday imposed a fine of Rs 1 lakh on IDBI Trusteeship Services for non-compliance of debenture trustee norms and directed the entity to pay the amount within 45 days. The order came after Sebi carried out an investigation in the matter of Fortis Health Care Holdings Pvt Ltd (FHHPL) based on a reference received from IDBI Trusteeship Service Ltd (ITSL) in the context of debt securities issued by FHHPL.
The regulator observed that ITSL– a Sebi-registered intermediary — failed to take any action towards the inspection of books of accounts of FHHPL but later cited non-cooperative behaviour of FHHPL as a reason for its failure.
“Noticee failed to fulfil its obligations in a prompt, ethical and professional manner, thereby violating code of conduct as specified in Debenture Trustee rules,” Sebi said in the order.
