Public sector enterprises and public sector banks are excluded from the process of shortlisting of securities under the ASM framework.
In order to enhance market integrity and safeguard investors interest, the Securities and Exchange Board of India and the exchanges have been introducing various enhanced pre-emptive surveillance measures such as reduction in price band, periodic call auction and transfer of securities to trade-to-trade category from time to time.

In a notice, the BSE said market participants may note that ASM framework should be in conjunction with all other prevailing surveillance measures being imposed by the exchanges from time to time.
The securities which are placed under the framework are reviewed on bi-monthly (two months) or periodical basis for the applicability of the ASM.

"Also, it may also be noted that the shortlisting of securities under aforesaid framework is purely on account of market surveillance and it should not be construed as an adverse action against the concerned company/ entity," the BSE said.
