Disputes In The Past

All was not well between the Sify and MF Global. In 2010, Sify had disputed financials of the subsidiary saying that certain recorded cross charges of corporate expenses made by MF Global Holdings and affiliated entities, to MF Global Sify Securities and had said that it believed that the charges, and various related actions, violated a shareholders’ agreement among the parties. This had led to Sify being unable to file its audited financial statements for FY 2009-10.
