The decision has been taken jointly by the exchanges and would be effective from June 28, it said. According to the circular, the company has failed to provide prompt responses to queries of exchanges regarding various rumours. The responses received “are not clear and satisfactory”, it added. Also, the company is not in a position to consider and approve audited financial results for the year ended March 2019 and there are also observations made by the airline’s auditor. “… there are concerns with regard to continuity of flow of information about the company which is very vital for the appropriate price discovery in the scrip. Hence trading in the scrip may not reflect the actual status of the company,” the circular said.

Shares of Jet Airways fell 2 per cent to close at Rs 110.10 on the NSE Wednesday. It declined 1.38 per cent to end at Rs 110.40 on the BSE.
