CSE crisis persists
Calcutta, Oct. 9: The fate of the Calcutta Stock Exchange continued to hang in balance as the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) gave the exchange directors, who appeared at a personal hearing today, seven days’ time to make further submission, if any, in connection with the August 28 showcause notice. “We placed all facts, including that we were not involved in the day-to-day management of the exchange when the alleged discrepancies were noticed. It is now up to Sebi to take a decision,” CSE director S. K. Kaushik said.
