SEBI extends stock lending, borrowing tenure to 12 months


The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has extended the tenure of contracts for stock lending and borrowing (SLB) up to a maximum period of 12 months, as it tries to revive the comatose segment.SLB was introduced in April 2008, starting with a contract tenure of seven days. With hardly any interest from market participants in the product, the regulator increased the tenure to 30 days in November that year. But even that has not helped in attracting investors to the SLB window.
