Piramal Enterprises: Shares of Piramal Enterprises rose 10.5 percent at Rs 2,168 per share after the Mumbai Bench of the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) approved Piramal Group’s resolution plan for the beleaguered Dewan Housing Finance (DHFL).

DHFL: Dewan Housing Finance Corporation (DHFL) rose nearly 10 percent as investors cheered NCLT's nod to Piramal Group's resolution plan. The rally came even as the stock became worth literally 'zero' after the company said the shares will be delisted from the exchanges as part of the resolution plan. "As part of the Resolution Plan, the equity shares of the Company are proposed to be delisted," said DHFL in an exchange filing. The bench also rejected Kapil Wadhawan's plea to get access to a copy of the resolution plan.
UCO Bank: UCO Bank share price gained 3 percent after the bank requested the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to take it out of the prompt corrective action (PCA) framework following an improvement in its financial parameters.
