But trading permission will be granted by BSE subject to obtaining of listing approval from NSE and some other formalities with NSDL & CDSL. Listing approval from NSE is awaited.

Further, on allotment of 31,58,700 equity shares on 17.10.2013, listing application had been filed with BSE & NSE along-with other certificates and documents. Follow up is going on for listing of these shares at BSE & NSE.

Thereafter, Company got the in-principle approval from BSE for listing of said shares vide their letter dated 26.05.2008 with the condition of in-principle approval from NSE also. However, NSE did not grant any listing and trading permission of said 53,00,000 shares allotted by the Company on preferential basis due to certain lapses of erstwhile SEBI (DIP) Guidelines.

Non listing of the said 53,00,000 Equity Shares led to a mismatch between the "Issued Equity Share Capital" & "Listed Equity Share Capital" of the Company.

It may be noted that the "Issued Equity Share Capital" has to be in line with the "Listed Equity Share Capital", as per the Stock Exchanges.

Hence it was proposed by the Board for reduction of the unlisted 53,00,000 Equity Shares of Rs. 10/- each, issued at a premium of Rs.9/- each, by paying off/ returning the entire paid up share capital on the unlisted 53,00,000 (Fifty Three Lac) Equity Shares of Rs. 10/- each fully paid up, to those allottees, who had subscribed to the said preferential allotment of 53,00,000 equity shares made by the Company and thereby extinguishing all those shares. Further, apart from above, it was proposed to issue upto 4,77,000 (Four Lac Seventy Seven Thousand) Redeemable Preference Shares of Rs.100/- each fully paid up at par in one or more trenches to these allottees against and in proportion to the share premium amount received by the Company @ Rs.9/-each per share (53,00,000 equity shares) from these allottees. The said resolutions were approved by the shareholders of the Company at their aGm held on 30th September 2011.

Company received NOC from NSE and BSE vide their letter dated 06.03.2012 and 04.04.2012 respectively and part creditor(s) of the Company for filing of Scheme of Arrangement relating to Re-Organisation and Reduction of share capital with the Hon'ble High Court of Delhi pursuant to Section 391 and other applicable provisions of the Companies Act, 1956. However, pursuant to SEBI circular dated 04.02.2013, Company was required again, to obtain the NOC from BSE and nSe alongwith the observation/approval of SEBI, as the Company did not able to file the said scheme with the Hon'ble High Court of Delhi before 04.02.2103 due to some technical and procedural formalities including non-issue of NOC by SASF.

Therefore, Company once again filed the draft copy of said scheme alongwith other certificates and documents with BSE and NSE for their NOC with the observation and approval of SEBI.

Non listing of the said 53,00,000 Equity Shares led to a mismatch between the "Issued Equity

Share Capital" & "Listed Equity Share Capital" of the Company.
