SC upholds Sinha's appointment as SEBI chief
New Delhi, Nov 1: The Supreme Court today upheld the appointment of U.K. Sinha as the head of market regulator SEBI.

Upholding Sinha's appointment, the apex court bench of Justice S.S. Nijjar and Justice H.L. Gokhale said the appointment was made fairly as per procedure.

The court said this as it dismissed the petition by Arun Kumar Aggarwal.

Aggarwal challenged Sinha' appointment as Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) chief contending that was vitiated due to several irregularities and was malafide.

Sinha, the PIL petitioner contended, failed to fulfill one of the eligibility conditions as laid down in Sub-section (5) of Section 4 of the SEBI Act as well as in the government communication which requires that the chairman shall be a person of high integrity.
