The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has set a minimum public shareholding requirement for companies listed in India.

According to the SEBI (Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations of 2015, listed companies must maintain a minimum public shareholding of 25%. Companies are expected to achieve this within a specified timeframe from their listing date. 

If a company fails to meet the minimum public shareholding criteria, it must take the necessary actions to ensure compliance. Non-compliance with SEBI’s regulations may result in penalties and other regulatory consequences.

While SEBI initially provided a three-year window for listed companies to achieve the 25% minimum public shareholding, it has relaxed this rule for privatized state-run companies, granting them additional time to meet the requirement. 

Specifically, five public sector banks, namely the Central Bank of India, Indian Overseas Bank, Bank of Maharashtra, UCO Bank, and Punjab & Sind Bank, have been given an extension until August 2024 to comply with the 25% MPS norm.
