LISTING: The Company's equity shares are listed on the Mumbai Stock Exchange vide code No.520149 and Ahmedabad Stock Exchange vide code no.38014. The securities are admitted in CDSL vide ISIN No.INE521D01011 (Currently suspended). The Company had applied to the Mumbai Stock Exchange for in- principle approval for listing of its restructured / reorganized equity share capital, but no such approval was given since the public shareholding in the Company has gone below 10%. Hence the Company's securities are suspended from trading on the Mumbai Stock Exchange and deactivated for dematerialisation in CDSL. In respect of the equity shares held in electronic form, the depository is yet to effect the corporate action pertaining to new equity shares of the face value of Rs. 5/- each, since no in principle approval has been granted nor any other proper response given by the Mumbai Stock Exchange to the Company or CDSL, which is a pre-requisite for CDSL to give effect to the necessary corporate action. Our consistent efforts with BSE could not yield any result and the above matters still remained unresolved by them. The Company has appointed M/s.
