331 Shell Companies- Many Calcutta Stock Exchange Listed

Calcutta Stock Exchange
The capital markets regulator last week imposed trading restrictions on 331 companies listed with stock exchanges after they were identified as shell, based on inputs of several agencies such as the income tax department and the Serious Fraud Investigation Office.
It was found that around 145 of these companies were registered in Kolkata.
Shares of several of these companies were once traded on the Calcutta Stock Exchange (CSE), which effectively collapsed after brokers defaulted in March 2001. The investigation that followed in the Rs120-crore payment shortfall exposed serious deficiencies in market surveillance.
Surveillance tightened, trading in frontline stocks shifted from CSE within months to the Mumbai-based bourses with better liquidity. 

Trading at CSE plummeted to a trickle, threatening its survival.

 Still, some shares continued to be traded only on CSE until in 2013 the securities market regulator ordered the exchange’s trading platform to be wound up.

Do Not Punish Investors

Trading should not stop. ( 331 Companies to Trade only once a month -i.e. First Monday of each Month ).

This means punishing the hapless Investors who have no role in running the affairs of the Company.

SEBI / Govt, should first solve the issue of Non Trading of Shares which were earlier Exclusively Listed in , now closed , Regional Stock Exchanges.

Then there is issue of Metropolitan Stock Exchange.

Many small cap gems like Frick India are listed exclusively in Metropolitan Stock Exchange. No share trading is taking place in Metropolitan Stock Exchange causing immense problem to the Investors.

SEBI must ensure regular trading in Metropolitan Stock Exchange and help small Investors.
