"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.

The order comes after Sebi conducted an investigation based on a complaint received from Quantum Securities (QSL), a shareholder of NDTV, that the firm did not disclose the order of "Dispute Resolution Panel-II (DRP-II) of the Income Tax Department, within 2 days of receipt of information, to the stock exchanges".
