SEBI eases norms for non-residents to transfer shares to kin
Mumbai: Capital markets regulator SEBI on Monday granted relaxation to non-residents from furnishing PAN card details to transfer equity shares to their immediate relatives subject to conditions. According to the SEBI, many non-residents such as Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), Overseas Citizens of India (OCIs), Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs) and foreign nationals have been facing difficulties in transferring shares held by them since many of them do not have PAN card.
“In order to address the difficulties faced by such investors, it has been decided to grant relaxation to non-residents (such as NRIs, PIOs, OCIs and foreign nationals) from the requirement to furnish PAN and permit them to transfer equity shares held by them in listed entities to their immediate relatives...,” the SEBI said in a circular.
