'Permit Investors to Withdraw Bid': SEBI
In a rare move, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) had on 28 March asked Ruchi Soya to permit investors to withdraw their bids. They also cautioned them about an "unsolicited SMS" that was circulating regarding the sale of their shares.
Hence, while the FPO concluded on 28 March, the withdrawal window was extended to 30 March. Around 97 lakh bids were withdrawn by investors in this regard.
