The leading bourse would report to the Sebi about the 48 companies after collecting the information. Out of the 48 firms, ten entities had already been suspended before the Sebi's directive.

On August 7, the regulator had directed the stock exchanges to take action against 331 suspected shell companies that were referred to it by the corporate affairs ministry. The exchanges were asked to move these shares to stage VI of the Graded Surveillance Measure with immediate effect.

"Of these 331 companies, only 48 are listed on NSE. Of these 48 companies, 10 companies were suspended prior to this directive of Sebi," the NSE said in a statement.

The regulator has asked the exchange to "seek documents from these 48 companies and verify the credentials and fundamentals of these companies".
