BTCXIndia, a crypto token marketplace, will stop trading today. The firm has said that it has decided not to accept deposits with effect from January 1, 2018. And deposits received after January 1 would be reverted to the investor’s bank account automatically.

BSE will delist 36 firms from today as trading in their shares remained suspended for over three years. The companies belong to various sectors ranging from textiles, chemicals, pharma and technology. The move is part of the authorities’ plan on clamping down on shell firms.

Sarveshwar Foods, engaged in processing and marketing branded and un-branded basmati and non-basmati rice, will enter the capital market today with an initial public offer of 64,67,200 equity shares. The company has fixed the price band at ₹83-85 per share.

The CBSE board exams for class 10 and 12 students begin today. Over 28 lakh students will appear for the same. Exams for class 10 will conclude on April 12, while the last paper for class 12 will be conducted on April 4.

Both Houses of Parliament will reconvene today after a month-long recess in the Budget session. While the BJP will be buoyed by its victories in the North-East elections, the Opposition will seek to pin it down on the issue of the PNB fraud. The passage of the Fugitive Economic Offenders’ Bill will be high on the Government’s agenda.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.

Our website and apps too, are updated every minute, so that you can access the information you want anywhere, anytime.
