    A)  1 and 2           

    B)  1 and 3

    C)  2 and 3           

    D)  All of these

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    [a] SEBI has three functions rolled into one body. Quasi-legislative, quasi-judicial and quasi-executive. It drafts regulations in its legislative capacity, it conducts investigation and enforcement action in its executive function and it passes rulings and orders in its judicial capacity. Though, this makes it very powerful, there is an appeal process to create accountability. There is a securities appellate tribunal, which is a three-member tribunal and is headed by a former Chief Justice of a High Court. A second appeal lies directly to the Supreme Court.
