Rarely Traded or Suspended Companies


There are some companies that are rarely traded or suspended on NSE or BSE due to a combination of reasons, including circuit filters mechanism


Among the best examples are –


Elcid Investments Ltd., a BSE listed company, which is a co-promoter of Asian Paints with a significant Net Asset Value, which is locked at Rs 17 per share on Bombay Stock Exchange, while in the unlisted market, it is traded between Rs 1,50,000 and Rs 2,00,000.

It is possible for suspended companies to relist, providing opportunity for shareholders who bought stocks off-market to improve their wealth.

A good example is Coffee Day Enterprises Ltd- While it was suspended from BSE, it was traded in Unlisted Market, but it got relisted and has created wealth for shareholders.
