After the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) extended the deadline for filing claims of PACL till July 31, investors who might have missed the last date are submitting claims. But, some investors seeking refund from PACL are confused about how to calculate the claim amount to be entered in refund application form. So, here is the official answer from SEBI:-
Q: How is the claim amount that is to be entered in the claim application form to be calculated? Can an investor input the maturity amount as the claim amount?
SEBI: The claim amount is the total amount that is derived upon adding the amounts as appearing in all the outstanding receipts of payment with respect to a particular PACL Registration Number.

It is further clarified that the maturity amount is not the claim amount.
