The Supreme Court is set to hear the Adani-Hindenburg case on May 12, where market regulator SEBI is probing allegations of stock price manipulation by the Adani Group and lapses in regulatory disclosure. The court had also set up a panel, headed by former apex court judge Justice A M Sapre, to provide protection to Indian investors after a damning report by US short seller Hindenburg wiped out more than $140 billion of the Indian conglomerate’s market value. Recently, SEBI moved the apex court seeking a six-month extension to complete its probe into possible violations related to misrepresentation of financials, circumvention of regulations, and/or fraudulent nature of transactions. The hearing is significant as the six-member committee has submitted its report to the top court in a sealed cover, according to media reports.
In early 2022, the Indian conglomerate Adani Group faced a major setback when a report by US short seller Hindenburg Research accused it of accounting irregularities, among other allegations. The report wiped out over $140 billion of the Adani Group’s market value, leading to investigations by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).
Supreme Court’s intervention in the Adani-Hindenburg case
On March 2, 2023, the Supreme Court asked SEBI to probe the allegations of stock price manipulation by the Adani group and lapses in regulatory disclosure within two months. The court also set up a panel headed by former apex court judge Justice A M Sapre to assess the existing regulatory framework and recommend ways to strengthen the process. The panel is to be provided assistance by the Centre and other statutory agencies, including the SEBI chairperson.
SEBI seeks extension to complete probe into Adani group’s alleged violations
Recently, SEBI moved the apex court seeking a six-month extension to complete its probe into possible violations related to “misrepresentation of financials, circumvention of regulations and/or fraudulent nature of transactions” by the Adani group.
Contention of PIL petitioner against SEBI’s plea
One of the PIL petitioners, advocate Vishal Tiwari, has opposed SEBI’s plea, saying the regulator has already had enough time to inspect, examine, collect, and seize relevant documents.
The significance of the hearing on May 12
The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear the Adani-Hindenburg case on May 12. The hearing gains significance in light of media reports that the Justice Sapre panel has submitted its report to the court in a sealed cover.
Another important consideration for effective communication is to be aware of your audience and tailor your language and tone accordingly. Different people may respond better to different styles of communication, depending on their personality, background, and cultural norms. For example, using slang or colloquial language may be appropriate and effective when speaking with a group of young adults, but may not be suitable when addressing a formal business meeting.
Furthermore, it is important to avoid using language that may be offensive or insensitive to certain groups of people, such as sexist or racist language. This not only shows a lack of respect for those individuals, but can also damage your reputation and credibility as a communicator.
In addition to being aware of your audience, effective communication also involves active listening. It is important to pay attention to what others are saying and respond appropriately, rather than just waiting for your turn to speak. This can involve asking clarifying questions, summarizing what has been said, and acknowledging the other person’s point of view.
Finally, effective communication also requires empathy and emotional intelligence. Being able to understand and connect with the emotions and experiences of others can help build trust and rapport, which can in turn lead to more productive and effective communication.
Overall, effective communication is a complex and multifaceted skill that requires practice and effort to master. However, by being aware of your audience, using clear and concise language, actively listening, and demonstrating empathy, you can become a more effective communicator and achieve your goals more successfully.
