DFL Infrastructure Finance has been restricted from selling or transferring its assets as well as transacting in other business activities without prior permission from the Reserve Bank due to findings of the company's books and accounts inspected last year.
In a regulatory filing to the BSE, the company on Tuesday said it be won't be allowed to sell, transfer, create charge or mortgage or deal in any manner with its property and assets without prior written permission of Reserve Bank.
"...the RBI has, in public interest and in exercise of the powers conferred on it directed that until further orders, DFL Infrastructure Finance Ltd shall not, sell, transfer, create charge or mortgage or deal in any manner with its property and assets without prior written permission of the RBI," the regulator said in a release in February.
DFL Infrastructure Finance said the directive came from the RBI following the findings of the inspection of the books and accounts and other records as on March 31, 2013.
Further, the company has also been disallowed to declare or distribute any dividend, transact any business as well as incur any further liabilities.
However, RBI did not provide with details of inspection that led to barring the company from conducting business activities.
