State Bank of India has submitted a copy of the letter issued by the Madras Stock Exchange informing the removal of the name of the bank from Listed Securities of the bourse, according to a BSE filing by the bank.
“We (Madras Stock Exchange) write to inform you that the admission granted to dealings on the Exchange for the equity shares of your company has been withdrawn and the name of your company will be removed from the list of listed securities of the Exchange with effect from March 27, 2015,” said the letter from Madras Stock Exchange.
SBI has voluntarily delisted equity shares from the Madras Stock Exchange.
The Madras Stock Exchange became non—operational last year following directions from SEBI to exit business on failing to garner required revenue.
As per SEBI directives, regional stock exchanges should generate annual turnover of Rs 1,000 crore and have a net-worth of Rs 100 crore.
If the exchanges failed to generate such amount of turnover and net-worth, they would consider exiting from trading options.
One of the oldest stock exchanges in the country, Madras Stock Exchange was set up as the first bourse in South India in 1937.
