India’s Stock Exchange Trials Blockchain E-Voting For Listed Companies

The National Stock Exchange of India (NSE) is trying a blockchain platform created by Elemential Labs to transmit e-voting in favor of listed companies, local news outlet Hindu BusinessLine reports September 27.

The NSE’s pilot will involve tokenizing voting rights and utilizing the blockchain platform to interface the firm, registrar and transfer agents(RTA), and the regulator. Hindu BusinessLine takes note of that tokenized votes are both simple to exchange and to an intermediary, and the test will allegedly be utilized to assess that it is so easy to review the whole of the voting technique using blockchain.

Sankarson Banerjee, CTO of projects at NSE, is cited as saying that the blockchain system offers includes that can bring the trade “closer to an environment of improved corporate governance and compliance,” laying out that:

“The immutable nature of blockchain will ensure that every action taken by a network participant is transparent to the regulator. Additionally, the smart contract framework enables synchronization of the vote count process between the company and the regulator in real time.”

Elemential Labs’ platform utilizes the Hyperledger structure, and NSE will apparently assume the responsibility of creating and dealing with the front-end utilization of the system.

Elemential CEO Raunaq Vaisoha resounded Banerjee in pushing for blockchain’s capacity to guarantee administrative consistence progressively and to offer “highly transparent and clear corporate governance,” which he thought to be “an operating standard that most companies aspire to.”

As announced not long ago, the Union Cabinet of India — the nation’s central basic leadership body driven by Narendra Modi — has affirmed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with BRICS participants on communitarian examination into blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies(DLT).

This mid-year, the Indian province of Telangana declared it would sign a few MoUs with blockchain firms as to in the execute the innovation across government services.

As blockchain makes advances with the nation’s government, India’s Supreme Court is as of now amidst surveying the Reserve Bank of India (RBI’s) controversial restriction on banks’ dealings with crypto-related substances. This week, the court tuned in to the last round of petitions on the boycott, which has authoritatively been in force since July 6.
