2. If the issue is still not resolved, it is referred to the Grievance Committee constituted by the Exchange. Notice is issued to both parties. Opportunity to adduce evidence and privilege of detailed and fair hearing is given to the parties .After weighing the evidence/documents on record  and taking into consideration the arguments raised, a decision is given on merits which is communicated to the parties.  If the concerned broker/company does not comply with the decision, the matter is referred to the Board Of Directors which initiates necessary action to ensure compliance.
