The move is part of a surveillance review to safeguard interest of investors in the capital market. The BSE would shift 57 securities to the trade-for-trade or 'T' group, while NSE would transfer 26 stocks to this segment, the two stock exchanges said in separate circulars.
Among other stocks which would be shifted to the 'T' Group segment on both the bourses included Hindustan Dorr-Oliver Ltd, Hindustan Organic Chemicals, Plethico Pharmaceuticals and Ramco System.
Besides, BSE would also be shifting Deccan Chronicle Holdings to the restricted trade segment on its platform.

As per the bourses, the move is part of the "surveillance review, with a view to ensure market safety and safeguard the interest of investors".
The stock exchanges have advised the trading members to take "adequate precaution" while trading in these scrips "as the settlement will be done on trade-to-trade basis and no netting off will be allowed".
However, they added the transfer of these securities for trading and settlement on a trade-to-trade basis "is purely on account of market surveillance and it should not be construed as an adverse action against the concerned company".
These stocks would attract a price band of 5 percent which would be the maximum permissible limit within which the share price can move.
