Insider trading laws in India

Insider trading laws in India
In the United States and several other jurisdictions, trading conducted by corporate officers, key employees, directors, or significant shareholders (in the US, defined as beneficial owners of 10% or more of the firm's equity securities) must be reported to the regulator or publicly disclosed, usually within a few business days of the trade.
