Merchant banking, a crucial facet of India's financial landscape, encompasses a spectrum of specialised services vital for the efficient functioning of capital markets. At its core, merchant banking involves facilitating the issuance of securities, offering advisory services to corporations, and managing corporate finance activities. In India, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) serves as the primary regulatory authority overseeing merchant banking activities, aiming to ensure transparency, integrity, and investor protection. By examining the evolution of merchant banking regulations, the paper seeks to provide insights into the dynamic nature of India's financial regulatory framework and its implications for market participants. Additionally, it explores the impact of technological advancements and global best practices on merchant banking regulations, underscoring the importance of adapting regulatory frameworks to meet evolving industry trends.
