    SBICAP, while not admitting or denying the findings of SEBI, proposed settlement terms to resolve the proceedings. Following discussions and revisions to the proposed terms, the settlement amount of Rs 25.08 lakh was recommended by the High Powered Advisory Committee (HPAC) and which was approved by SEBI's Panel of Whole Time Members.

    Upon remittance of the settlement amount by SBICAP, confirmed by SEBI on June 7, 2024, the adjudication proceedings against SBICAP were formally disposed of according to SEBI Act and Settlement Regulations.
