What does delisting of a stock mean?

Delisting is the process of removing stocks from the stock exchange. These will not be visible on Kite for trading. You can still see them in your holdings on Console.

What do I do with my delisted stocks?

Unfortunately, there isn’t anything you can do unless the company lists again or announces an exit offer. See What to do if I missed applying for a delisting? Investments in delisted stocks should be considered a loss or be written off completely unless you can find someone to buy the stock through an off-market transaction. See How to transfer shares?

What if I miss to tender my shares in the delisting window?

Even if you miss to tender your shares, it is still possible to sell your stocks back to the promoters of the company who are obligated to purchase your stock. This facility is usually available for a period of 1 year from the date of closing of the tender offer. Please create a ticket if you would like to do this.

Types of delisting

Forced delisting typically happens due to non-compliance with SEBI listing requirements or other legal issues.

Voluntarily delisting refers to companies voluntarily delisting themselves from the exchange because of corporate restructuring. In this case, companies typically offer a buyback window to investors.
