In this case, the stock market regulatory body SEBI investigated the activities of many people and entities between 2009 and 2016. All these people and institutions were providing special connectivity to certain stockbrokers through NSE. Due to this, there was a fear of harm to the interests of the stock market and other investors and broker firms.

cheated like this
Share broker firms Way-2-Wealth Brokers and GKN Securities were informed by the same officers and employees from NSE’s servers. For those firms ‘dark fiber’ was laid. Dark fiber means such an optical fiber line that is not used for any other purpose, is not connected to any other active electronic device, nor is any data transmitted from it to any other person or organization.
According to SEBI, it was the NSE officials and staff that allowed Sampark to lay special cables for Way-2-Wealth and GKN. The liaison firm did not have permission for this. Both these stockbroker firms got ‘latency advantage’ from Dark Fiber. The low latency in the stock market gave both of them an opportunity to make more profit by reacting faster to the market conditions than the rest of the firm. This difference is in milliseconds. According to several studies, a low latency of 1 millisecond can provide an average benefit of up to $100 million.
