Despite the surge in March, the Adani group’s combined market capitalisation is still down by 51% since the Hindenburg report was first released on January 24.
Adani Transmission and Adani Total Gas, both of which have been placed under the long-term additional surveillance measures (ASM) framework effective March 13, were both locked in their respective upper circuits.
Earlier last week, Adani Enterprises, Adani Wilmar and Adani Power were put under the ASM framework.
Stocks under ASM are monitored for price fluctuations, volatility, and cannot be pledged. Margins are also not available on stocks under ASM, so traders do not get any intraday leverage.
