Though, P-Notes are an internationally accepted route to invest money and there are genuine player, there are concerns about round-tripping of money. Wealthy Indians, like companies‘ promoters, are using it to bring back unaccounted funds and to manipulate their stock prices. Recently the special investigation team (SIT) on black money has asked the SEBI to furnish details of all those investing through participatory notes (P-Notes).SEBI has recently put in place restrictions on foreign portfolio investors from issuing participatory notes.  So, P-Notes can be issued only for the purpose of hedging (safeguarding) with respect to the equity shares held.
