Since the company is facing a liquidity crisis there are murmurs that the counter may become another Jet Airways of the stock market. Both Jet Airways company and its shares have crash landed. After the free-fall of Jet Airways share price, SEBI had to withdraw Jet Airways shares from the cash segment to ensure the safety of the small investors.
