Besides, the order said the promoters and directors in NTIL would be permitted only to buy the securities of NTIL.The shares held by the promoters and directors in NTIL shall not be allowed to be transferred for sale by depositories.

The other actions envisaged by Sebi and the consequential action taken by stock exchanges shall continue to have effect against NTIL. The regulator in a fresh order said that forensic auditor as directed in the interim order has submitted the report to Sebi and the “consequential action” in that regards will be taken in accordance with law.

NTIL was in the list of 331 suspected shell companies provided by the corporate affairs ministry to Sebi, following which action was initiated against them.
