Mumbai: Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and National Stock Exchange (NSE) on Wednesday decided to shift securities of several companies to the restricted trading segment from October 10 to ensure safety of investors in the capital markets.
BSE said it would be shifting as many as 83 scrips to the trade-for-trade or 'T' segment, while
NSE has decided to move 17 stocks to this category, the bourses said in separate notices.
The stocks to be moved to the 'T' group on both the exchanges include that of Indiabulls Power Ltd, Nicco Corporation, Cyber Media (India) Ltd, Surana Industries, GI Engineering Solutions Ltd and Electrotherm (India) Ltd.
Under the trade-for-trade segment no speculative trading is allowed and delivery of shares and payment of consideration amount are mandatory.
The move is part of surveillance review and with a view to ensure market safety and safeguard the interest of investors, the exchanges said.
"Members are requested to take adequate precaution while trading in the above securities, as the settlement will be done on trade-to-trade basis and no netting off will be allowed," they added.
Further, it said that the "transfer of security for trading and settlement on a trade-to-trade basis is purely on account of market surveillance and it should not be construed as an adverse action against the concerned company".
These stocks would attract a price band of 5 per cent which would be the maximum permissible limit within which the share price can move.
Meanwhile, BSE said it would move securities of 63 companies to the normal segment from the 'T' group with effect from October 10.
Similarly, NSE also would shift securities of 16 companies to the normal segment.
Panasonic Appliances India Company, Ramco Systems, Saregama India, Kemrock Industries and Exports Ltd are some of the firms which would be transferred to the normal trading segment on both the stock exchanges.
