Currently, four companies are banned, namely Escorts Limited, Indiabulls Housing Finance Limited, Vodafone Idea and Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL).
Chaturvedi said these four companies will likely remain on the ban list for the time being. This is because the positions were not reduced in these stocks.
The F&O ban applies to all stocks that are traded in this segment. Exchanges set market-wide position limits (MWPL) for stocks in this segment. MWPL is the maximum number of contracts that can be opened at any time (Open Interest). If the open interest in a stock exceeds 95% of the MWPL of all futures and options contracts in that stock, all F&O contracts in that stock enter a blackout period.
According to this report, the MWPL for escorts is 95%; for IB Housing it is 91%, Vodafone Idea 89% and SAIL 84%. This was the status during market hours.
One stock that could now see an entry in this list is Granules India Limited whose MWPL crossed the threshold today, he said. It was around 114% at that time.
