Securities lawyer Sandeep Parekh called Buch a "superb choice for SEBI". "Congratulations to Ms. Buch - having interacted with her during my time as a committee member of mutual fund advisory committee, can vouch that she is not just competent, but also very very data driven.

Finally a professional as Chairperson of #SEBI as #MadhabiPuriBuch appointed on the post.
Much required for regulatory bodies to be headed by people with knowledge of the subject and experience to back it.
