Process - Equity
An Issuer has to take various steps prior to making an application for listing its securities on the NSE. These steps are essential to ensure the compliance of certain requirements by the Issuer before listing its securities on the NSE. The various steps to be taken include:
The Issuer shall file the draft prospectus and along with the documents mentioned in the checklist for IPO Vetting. The draft prospectus should have been prepared in accordance with the SEBI (ICDR) Regulations, other statutes, notifications, circulars, etc. governing preparation and issue of prospectus prevailing at the relevant time. The Issuers may particularly bear in mind the provisions of Companies Act, Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act, the SEBI Act and the relevant subordinate legislations thereto. NSE will peruse the draft prospectus only from the point of view of checking whether the draft prospectus is in accordance with the listing requirements, and therefore any approval given by NSE in respect of the draft prospectus should not be construed as approval under any laws, rules, notifications, circulars, guidelines etc. The Issuer should also submit the SEBI letter indicating observations on draft prospectus or letter of offer by SEBI.
