Yes.

The market regulator can say what it wants to happen, but it can't make its own rules.

Your understanding of the phrase "called for" is correct. In this sentence, the phrase means "publicly ask for or demand". There are several agencies in India which are responsible for regulating the business in stock exchanges and securities markets. These include the stock-brokers, share transfer agents, bankers to an issue, merchant bankers, investment advisers, underwriters and portfolio managers. Many more intermediaries are associated with securities markets.

SEBI has publicly demanded that all such agencies that function as issuers, intermediaries or market infrastructure providers should work for bigger, cleaner and safer markets. The aim of SEBI is to continue focussing on further enhancing the overall governance standards in the market as applicable for for issuers, intermediaries or market infrastructure providers. This is with a view to enhancing risk management economics and thereby preventing unscrupulous elements from manipulating or misusing the market mechanism in any way.

I think, from the sentence, that it wasn't a native speaker who wrote these words?

It really is the most execrable sentence, from a native-speakers point of view. The length of the sentences and the unnecessarily convoluted way the sentences read is not the way a native speaker would express themselves. Except in a legal document. I had to go through it a few times to try to untangle the words.

Or else it written by someone who thinks they are using Business-Speak.

In either case, don't try to emulate writing like this. The aim of language is to communicate - not to confuse.

Edited to add: have just seen the other thread, which is from the same source. The same comment applies there: = this is terrible language-use, so don't copy it.
