Investor Protection Fund of Depositories

Circular dated 07.06.2016

SEBI (Depositories and Participants) (Amendment) Regulations, 2012 require every depository to establish and maintain an Investor Protection Fund (IPF). The Depository System Review Committee (DSRC) had examined various aspects of the depository IPF including utilization and investment policy of IPF and quantum of funds to be transferred to IPF.

The SEBI (Depositories and Participants) Regulations were amended mandating the depositories to credit five per cent or such percentage as may be specified by the Board, of its profits from depository operations every year to the IPF.
