The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has rapped state-owned Punjab National Bank (PNB) over compliance with disclosure related norms. The beleaguered lender on Thursday informed investors, through a stock exchange notification, about a warning letter dated May 15 from Sebi regarding disclosures made in the developments pertaining to the Nirav Modi group and Gitanjali group fraud.

“There are delays of 1-6 days by PNB in making disclosures to the stock exchange pertaining to filing of the reports, complaints with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)," the regulator has written to the lender, charging it with non-compliance of several clauses in the Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements (LODR).

The Sebi letter also highlights lack of disclosure pertaining to the fraud in the quarterly results.

“PNB has not made any provisions, disclosures with respect to fraud of Rs 2.8 billion in the financial statements for the quarter ended December 2017 and thereby not complied with Clause I of Part A of Schedule IV read with Regulation 33(1)(e) of Sebi LODR Regulations," the regulator has said.

The regulator, however, let off PNB with just a warning.

“The aforesaid non-compliances are viewed seriously and PNB is hereby warned and advised to be  cautious in future to ensure compliance with all applicable provisions of the Sebi LODR Regulations," Sebi has written to the lender.
