Happy new year, folks!
Even as we ring into 2021 with excitement, hoping that the deadly pandemic finally bids a goodbye, business tycoon Mukesh Ambani and his empire Reliance Industries Limited had a rather shocking start to the year on learning about the hefty-penalty that arose from a 13-yr old case. Let’s find out more.
On 1st Jan 2021, SEBI declared in its order that RIL and its agents were involved in alleged manipulative trading, which garnered them undue profits. SEBI holds Mukesh Ambani liable for this on the grounds of him being the Chairman and Managing Director of RIL.
Back in 2007, the RIL’s Board of Directors had passed a resolution that approved the operating plan for 2007–08 and resource requirement for the next 2 yrs, which was ~Rs 87,000 cr. In Nov of the same year, RIL decided to offload 4.1% of its stake in Reliance Petroleum Limited, it’s subsidiary. To undertake transactions thereof, RIL appointed 12 agents between in the 2 months that followed.
Reportedly, RIL and the 12 agents bought stocks of RPL and put their bets against the securities. That way, the trade would be favourable if the price of RPL declined and not increased. Now, SEBI alleges that RIL and the 12 agents had entered a prior agreement to take short positions in RPL and transfer the gains thereon to RIL. A short position means when a trader sells securities with the intention of repurchasing it at a lower price.
Accordingly, the 12 agents took short positions in RPL on behalf of RIL in the F&O Segment and Reliance itself conducted the transactions in the cash segment. By Nov 2007, RIL’s short positions in the derivative segment had exceeded 95%, the permissible limit. Put together, RIL’s outstanding position of 7.97 cr in the F&O Segment was settled for cash at a reduced settlement price, which resulted in undue profits. What’s more, these gains were then transferred to RIL by the agents.
These series of manipulative trades in stocks of Reliance Petroleum Limited in the Cash and the F&O markets triggered SEBI’s probe into the matter. After years of investigation, in 2017, RIL was directed to disgorge Rs 447.27 cr along with interest at 12% p.a. from 29 thNov 2007 to the date of payment. In addition, SEBI had also imposed a 1-yr ban on RIL from trading in India’s F&O segment, either directly or indirectly.
Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) observed that the violation of trade was a well-planned operation:
RIL appealed against the order but SAT dismissed the plea in Nov 2020. But grey days seemed to continue for RIL. In Jan 2021, SEBI imposed a hefty penalty on RIL, Mukesh Ambani, Mumbai SEZ Limited, and Navi Mumbai SEZ Private Limited. The latter two entities had allegedly aided RIL by offering funds to an agent appointed by the company. The agent in question, in turn, offered funds to the other 11 fellow agents to fund the margin required to take short positions in RPL November Futures. As per the latest SEBI order, the parties are fined as follows:
This penalty is in addition to the earlier disgorgement order. Read how these violations affect shareholders and RIL’s stance on the verdict here.

2021 has gotten off to a rocky start for Reliance Industries.
Last week, SEBI fined the conglomerate and its Chairman Mukesh Ambani a total of ₹40cr ($5.48m) for allegedly violating share trading rules in 2007.
According to SEBI’s order, RIL executed a well-planned operation 13 years ago when it sold a 5% stake in Reliance Petroleum (RPL). This involved hiring 12 shell companies to take short positions on RPL future contracts in the derivatives market using inside information and in violation of SEBI guidelines. All to make a killing from the stake sale.
