The government is reportedly mulling asking unlisted companies to submit their financial statements every quarter or twice a year. The corporate affairs ministry is looking to introduce provisions in the Company Law with the aim to have updated financial details about 'systemically-important companies' that are not listed, as per reports.
Listed companies are required to disclose their financials every three months under SEBI regulations and currently, an unlisted company can submit its financial statement and annual returns to the ministry at least six months after completion of a fiscal year. To discuss the proposed changes Startup Street spoke to Siddarth Pai, managing partner of 3One4 Capital and Vivek Durai, co-founder of business intelligence platform paper.vc
