The SEBI board also reduced the timeline for completion of a rights issue from T+55 days to T+31 days.

It was also decided that portfolio managers will not be permitted to invest more than 25 percent of their assets under management (AUM) in unlisted securities.

Dematerialised rights entitlements (REs) and trading of REs on stock exchanges were also introduced by SEBI. The rules require that top 500 listed entities based on market capitalisation shall include Business Responsibility Reporting as part of annual reports.
