SEBI vide circular no. SEBI/HO/OIAE/OIAE_IAD-1/P/CIR/2023/131 on July 31, 2023, read with SEBI Circular no. SEBI/HO/OIAE/OIAE_IAD-1/P/CIR/2023/135 dated August 4, 2023, has introduced a common Online Dispute Resolution (“ODR”) mechanism to facilitate online resolution of all kinds of disputes arising in the Indian securities market. The ODR Portal allows investors with additional mechanism to resolve the grievances in the following manner:

Level 1

Raise with Big Share Services Private Limited [Registrar and Transfer Agent (“RTA”)]/ Company

Through email:

Through Physical Correspondence: Big Share Services Pvt Ltd., Office No S6-2, 6th Floor, Pinnacle Business Park, Next to Ahura Centre, Mahakali Caves Road, Andheri (East) Mumbai 400093 

Level 2

SEBI scores:

Level 3

ODR Platform:

  1. This is to clarify that the shareholder(s) may initiate dispute resolution through the ODR Portal without having to go through SCORES Portal (i.e., From Level 1 to Level 3) if the grievance lodged with the Company is not resolved satisfactorily. 
  2. It may be noted that the dispute resolution through the ODR portal can be initiated only if such complaint/ dispute is not pending before any arbitral process, court, tribunal, or consumer forum or if the same is non-arbitrable under Indian law. 
  3. There is no fee for registration of complaints/ disputes on the ODR Portal. However, the process of conciliation / arbitration through ODR portal may attract fee and the same shall be borne by the concerned investor/ listed entity/ its RTA (as the case may be).
