NDTV under Enforcement Directorate scanner for FOREX violations


Media and ecommerce company NDTV has received a show cause notice from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for alleged Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) violations. Prannoy Roy, Radhika Roy, executive co-chairpersons of NDTV and K.V.L. Narayan Rao, executive vice chairperson of NDTV Studios Ltd (a subsidiary of NDTV) were named in the show cause notice, according to a notification in the Bombay Stock Exchange.

The show cause notice is related to why adjudication proceedings should not be held for alleged contravention of provisions of FEMA. “The Company has been advised that the allegations of the contraventions of provisions of FEMA in the show cause notice are not legally tenable and the Company will reply to the same within due course of time,” NDTV added.

In September, NDTV had informed the stock exchange that it had not received a notice from the ED and that it was merely sought additional information and documents from the company.

NDTV also ran into trouble with markets regulator SEBI earlier in June this year. SEBI had slapped a Rs 2 crore fine on the company for late disclosure of of information about a Rs 450-crore income tax notice the media company had received in February 2014.
