Invest in Unlisted Shares Selectively -ET Link

Please click :-



Blog Comments 

Most of the old companies shares which are Unlisted at present because of factors beyond the control of investors :-

(1 ) Many such shares were earlier Exclusively listed in Regional Stock Exchanges  like Delhi Stock Exchange , Madras Stock Exchange and these stock exchanges have been closed without offering any meaningful relief to  investors of such Exclusively listed shares.

(2) Managements of many such companies try to keep their companies officially listed but hidden as well ( like may be Frick India ) get their shares listed in Metropolitan Stock Exchange. There is no Equity trading in Metropolitan Stock Exchange . SEBI / Govt. should make Metropolitan Stock Exchange start Equity trading at once. Or else SEBI should not renew the Equity trading licence ( granted annually ) of Metropolitan Stock Exchange.    

 ( 3 ) Same is the case with Calcutta Stock Exchange. SEBI / Govt. should declare , with immediate  effect , Calcutta Stock Exchange as closed.

(4 )  In case , shares exclusively listed in Non operational Metropolitan Stock Exchange and Calcutta Stock Exchange are relisted in BSE / NSE or if Metropolitan and Calcutta Stock Exchanges are made , by SEBI / Govt , to start equity trading then shares .exclusively  listed in these Exchanges ( like Dalmia Refractories of Dalma Bharat Group ) can easily double / triple from the rates currently quoting for them in the Unlisted Market.

( 5 ) Govt. is losing crores of rupees of GST / STT by allowing Metropolitan Stock Exchange and Calcutta Stock Exchange to remain Non Operational for Equity trading. Investors are suffering.

Officially such companies comply with Listing obligations while keeping these shares de facto Unlisted . 

In their Annual Reports under the Heading Listing they would state , year after year , " Shares of YOUR Company are listed in Metropolitan Stock Exchange but there has been no trading in the year under review " 

So when ever a hapless shareholder approaches such a Company for a desperate exit then the spokesperson of the Company would make such shareholders a very low offer . 

The shareholder has no other option.

Metropolitan to SEBI -Share Trading Operational

.Copy of our Complaint to SEBI regarding Non Trading in Equities

Dear Sir ,

             Sub : Investors’ Complaint Against Non Trading in Equities

With due respect , we state :-

  1. We are holders of shares like Frick India , Dalmia Refractories etc which are Exclusively listed in Metropolitan Stock Exchange.

2 ) In the recent past , Metropolitan Stock Exchange has raised more than Rs. 200 cr ( privately ) to meet certain Infrastructural etc requirements. But despite this there is no trading in equities.

3 ) This Non Trading is causing great difficulty to investors like me as we are not able to buy / sell these Exclusively Listed shares .

( a ) Share Dealers of Unlisted shares , taking advantage of this Non Trading of shares in Metropolitan Stock Exchange , pay around one third of the likely rate had these shares been listed.    

( b ) In the absence of proper Contract Notes ( and payment of Securities Transaction Tax -STT  ), Sellers cannot claim Exemption from Long Term Capital Gains Tax.

( c ) Central Govt. is losing revenue which would accrued to it by way of GST and STT.

4 ) Please start Share Trading in Metropolitan Stock Exchange , at the earliest.

Thanking you ,

With regards ,
