Indian Government seeks cap on Temasek, GIC holdings in listed companies

Published

on

According to the Economic Times, “The finance ministry has proposed that a key agreement between India and Singapore be amended to prevent two Singapore government-owned investment entities — Temasek and GIC — from together holding more than 10% equity stake in any publicly-traded Indian company.

Under the current SEBI regulations, a foreign institutional investor (FII) cannot hold more than 10% in a single Indian company. Different FIIs owned by a common entity are classified as an FII group and are subject to the 10% cap. GIC and nine wholly-owned subsidiaries of Temasek are registered separately with the market regulator as FIIs, and as they have a common owner, they should have been categorized as an FII group, according to a note prepared by the ministry.

However, the Comprehensive Economic Co-operation Agreement (CECA) signed between the two countries in 2005 treats GIC and Temasek as unrelated and independent entities. It gave Temasek and GIC the right to hold 10% individually in a single company thereby allowing them the option to together increase their shareholding to up to 20% in a company.”
