CHENNAI: India's securities market regulator last year saw its revenues from penalties on insider trading going up by a whopping 1,010.9 percent to 20.40 crore.
According to Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), it imposed a total penalty of 20.40 crore last fiscal in adjudication proceedings for violations of SEBI (Prohibition of Insider Trading) Regulations, 1992. During 2012-13, the market regulator imposed a total penalty of 1.84 crore under the same head.

According to SEBI's latest annual report, the penalty under the anti-insider trading regulations imposed last fiscal includes penalty for disclosure related violations.

The market regulator uses a mix of warnings and letters of deficiency and harder measures such as disgorgement and payment of money under adjudication or consent proceedings to prevent insider trading.
