- The submission in XBRL mode may be made at the same time when the listed entities file Form AOC-4 (XBRL) with Ministry of Corporate Affairs.
- The timeline for submission of Annual Report in PDF mode shall be as per the amended Regulation 34 of SEBI (LODR) Regulations, 2018 w.e.f. April 01, 2019.
