A listed company may seek listing of NCDs/ NCRPs issued pursuant to a scheme of arrangement only in case where the listed company is a part of such scheme and such securities are issued to the holders of specified securities of such listed entity, as per Sebi circular.

Only the NCDs/NCRPs issued to listed specified security holders will be eligible for seeking listing.
