What is P-Note?
A participant note is a type of offshore derivative instrument. If any investor wants to invest money in Indian securities without registering with SEBI, they use it. Participatory notes to foreign investors are issued by a SEBI registered foreign brokerage firm or a foreign unit of a domestic brokerage firm. Brokers make purchases in Indian Indian securities i.e. shares, debt or derivatives and issue P-notes on them to clients by charging a fee.
