Provided that the listed entity, which is required to comply for the first time or after a period of cessation, shall put in place systems and processes for compliance with clause (f) of sub-regulation (2) of regulation 34 within a period of three months from December 31 (i.e. on or before April 1) or from the beginning of the immediate next financial year, whichever is later, and further disclose the Business Responsibility and Sustainability Report and/or assurance as per the Business Responsibility and Sustainability Report Core in the Annual Report prepared for the financial year in which systems and processes were required to be put in place in accordance with this proviso.
