Promoters of 82 companies in the BSE-500 Index have pledged part of their holdings in the September 2023 quarter.

The value of pledged promoter holdings stood at Rs1.8 tn (which is about 0.61 per cent of the total BSE-500 Index’s market capitalisation).

The report clarifies that the pledging of shares does not necessarily imply that a company or a promoter is under financial stress; banks (lenders) could have sought additional security in the form of promoter shares.
