SEBI chairperson Madhabi Puri Buch said after the board meeting that investors are losing money in equity derviatives trading, which, she said was a worry and it was the regulator’s duty to warn.

But, on a systematic level, Buch said, “we do not see a concern due to increased activity in equity derivatives trading”.

The regulator also approved rules for index providers, and will identify significant indices that are frequently used by market participants in India, which will come under SEBI rules.
