Manipulations are going on and SEBI cannot intervene in all of them. Some brokers are involved and the broker community should keep an eye as "bad elements can come in the system", he said.

The Whole Time Member of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) also said that entities should look at technological developments to improve efficiency as well as business.
