According to a Sebi order dated March 16, NDTV has been fined Rs 10 lakh.
Besides the firm, the regulator has fined — Prannoy Roy, Radhika Roy, Vikramaditya Chandra and Anoop Singh Juneja — Rs 3 lakh each.
“These people constitute the management of the company who are responsible for the day-to-day and overall operations of the company. Further, it is an admitted fact that the decision not to disclose the tax demand was a conscious decision taken by the management of NDTV,” the order read.
