NSDL Update – News –January 2015

To redress grievances of investors, SEBI launched a centralized web based complaints redress system ‘SCORES’ in June 2011. The purpose of SCORES is to provide a platform for aggrieved investors, whose grievances, pertaining to securities market, remain unresolved by the concerned listed company or registered intermediary after a direct approach. SCORES also provides a platform, overseen by SEBI through which the investors can approach the concerned listed company or SEBI registered intermediary in an endeavor towards speedy redressal of grievances of investors in the securities market. It would, however, be advisable that investors may initially take up their grievances for redressal with the concerned listed company or registered intermediary, who are required to have designated persons/officials for handling issues relating to compliance and redressal of investor grievances.

SEBI has issued various circulars/directions from time to time with respect to SCORES. In order to enable the users to have an access to all the applicable circulars/directions at one place, this Circular on SCORES consolidates the current provisions.

  • Centralised database of investor complaints
  • Online movement of complaints to the concerned listed company or SEBI registered intermediary
  • Online upload of Action Taken Reports (ATRs) by the concerned listed company or SEBI registered intermediary
  • Online viewing by investors of actions taken on the complaint and its current status
  • Further details about this circular are posted on NSDL website www.nsdl.co.in.
