Increasing Awareness on Rights Entitlement

SEBI vide its circular SEBI/HO/CFD/DIL2/CIR/P/2020/13 dated January 22, 2020 streamlined the process to be followed in case of Rights Issue. One of the key features introduced in the process of Rights Issues is dematerialization of Rights Entitlements (“REs”) and ability to renounce REs by trading on stock exchange platform or off-market transfer through depository mechanism. REs are traded in the secondary market platform of stock exchanges with T+2 rolling settlement similar to equity shares.

Accordingly, investors are requested to note that REs have a distinct ISIN, and the same should not be mistaken for ordinary shares of the concerned company.

Investors may further note that the purchase of REs only gives the right to participate in the on-going Rights Issue of the concerned company by making an application with requisite application money or renounce the REs before the issue closes. REs which are neither subscribed by making an application with requisite application money nor renounced, on or before the Issue closing date, shall lapse and shall be extinguished after the Issue closing date.
