BSE Brings 109 Firms Under Enhanced Surveillance

The BSE Ltd. today decided to bring 109 companies, including Reliance Naval and Engineering, Amtek Auto, GVK Power & Infrastructure under enhanced surveillance measures.

“...100 percent margins shall be applicable with effect from June 6, 2018 on all open positions as on June 5, 2018 and new positions created from June 6, 2018 onwards,” the BSE Ltd. said in a circular. The move is aimed at checking any abnormal rise in stock prices that is not commensurate with the financial health of companies.

Among the 109 companies put under the Additional Surveillance Measure framework are -- HEG Ltd., Bombay Dyeing & Manufacturing Company, Dilip Buildcon, GTL Infrastructure, Indiabulls Ventures, Jaypee Infratech, Radico Khaitan and Rain Industries. The framework shall be in conjunction with all other prevailing surveillance measures being imposed by the exchange from time to time, BSE said.

It added that the “shortlisting of securities under ASM Framework is purely on account of market surveillance and it should not be construed as an adverse action against the concerned company/entity”.
