TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The Supreme Court has directed the status quo with respect to pledging, transferring and further actions on pledged Tata shares by Pallonji Group. The apex court will next hear the case on October 28.

Prima facie, we are of the view that pledging is a case of limited transfer. Pledging may not be an absolute transfer, but is a case of limited transfer, SC observed.

Pallonji Group not willing to maintain the status quo, we thought they would be agreeable, SC said.
