The Supreme Court on Tue­sday set aside the Centre’s decision to merge National Spot Exch­nge (NSEL) with Financial Techn­ologies India (FTIL), now known as 63 Moon Tech­nologies, as it was against Section 396 of the Com­p­anies Act. Section 396 of the Companies Act deals with co­m­­pulsory amalgamation of firms ordered by the cen­tr­al government in public interest. 

A two-judge Bench of Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman and Justice Vineet Saran set aside a Bombay High Court judgment that had upheld the Centre’s order on amalgamating the two companies. The Centre had, in 2016, decided to issue a final order for the merger.
