Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) is a board (autonomous body) created by the Government of India in 1988 and given statutory form in 1992 with the SEBI Act 1992 with its head office at Mumbai. It is chaired by Mr. M. Damodaran a respected turnaround civil servant credited with turning around large public sector companies from near death scenarios including the famous Unit Trust of India. Below the Board, headed by the Chairman, the staff/officers of the organization are led by Executive Directors.
Sebi has three functions rolled into one body: legislative, judicial and executive. It drafts rules in its legislative capacity, it conducts enquiries and enforcement action in its executive fuction and it passes rulings and orders in its judicial capacity. Though this makes it exceedingly powerful, there is an appeals process to create accountibility.
Sebi has had a mixed history in terms of its success as a regulator. Though it has pushed systemic reforms aggresively and successively (e.g. the quick movement towards making the markets electronic and paperless), it seems to lack the legal expertise needed to sustain prosecutions/enforcement actions. It has often received flack from the appellate body known as the Securities Appellate Tribunal (SAT). From the SAT, an appeal lies straight to the Supreme Court of India.
