Adani Group companies: The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) discovered that twelve offshore funds investing in Adani group companies had violated disclosure rules and exceeded investment limits, according to two individuals with firsthand knowledge of the situation. These individuals chose to remain anonymous as they were not authorized to speak to the media. Earlier this year, SEBI sent notices to a dozen offshore investors in the Adani group, outlining the charges and requesting explanations for the disclosure violations and breaches of investment limits. “The offshore funds were disclosing their investments in Adani group companies at the individual fund level. The regulator, however, wanted the disclosure of holdings at the offshore fund group level,” one of the sources explained. Eight of these offshore funds have submitted written requests to the regulator, proposing to settle the charges by paying a penalty without admitting guilt.
