• Timeline Extended under previous Circulars:

SEBI has extended the timeline for submission of financial results under regulations 33 and 52 of the SEBI (Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations, 2015 ('LODR Regulations') to June 30, 2020 (extension of one month) due to the impact of theCoVID-19 pandemic.

• Reason behind further extension from 30th June 2020 to 31st July 2020.

Various representation has been received by SEBI from listed entities, Chartered Accountant firms, and industry bodies/associations seeking further extension of time for preparation, finalization and submission of financial results for listed entities due to many reasons, like the continuing lockdown, subsidiaries and associates situated in containment zones making the audit process challenging and other operational challenges due to the CoVID-19pandemic.

SEBI has decided to:
