New Delhi: Continuing its efforts to help market participants tide over challenges due to COVID-19 pandemic, market regulator SEBI on Monday decided to reduce broker turnover fees and filing charges on offer documents for public offering, rights issue and buyback of shares.

The broker turnover fee will be reduced to 50 percent of the existing fee structure for the period June 2020 to March 2021, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) said in a circular.
