*Sebi proposes regulatory framework for index providers, Rs 25 cr net worth*
The Securities and Exchange of India (Sebi) is planning to introduce a regulatory framework for index providers, both domestic and foreign, for increasing transparency and accountability in governance and administration of the financial benchmarks.
