Besides, the company and its chief were also barred from the markets.

Saradha Realty India Ltd and its Managing Director Sudipta Sen for their failure to pay a sum of Rs 774.3 crore (as a partial amount) Sebi said the defaulters failed to pay the amount and did not even respond to the recovery notices.

Giving a list of all such properties, Sebi said that “all persons are hereby prohibited from taking any benefit under such disposal, transfer, alienation or charge in respect of the properties mentioned above, which stand attached in execution of the Recovery Certificate”.
