This will ensure that the legitimate claims of the clients of the defaulting members or brokers even in extreme times are met.

SEBI further added that it is pertinent to give more focus on system or technology during the inspection of market infrastructure institutions (MIIs).

The purpose is to build processes that can be automated and assist in a thorough inspection of the MIIs.
