The company has on its client list of 8,000 some 20 franchisee units,including some from Kashmir.

The corporation also claims to have some Islamic clerics on its board who ‘help’ them to enter into transaction with only those companies that conform to Islamic laws (Shariah).

Parsoli has also been asked to remove its registrar and transfer agent,Pinnacle Shares Registry Private Limited,and appoint another registrar and transfer agent within a period of six months from the date of order.

A senior company executive said that SEBI had inspected Parsoli’s offices six months ago and vouched that the company had nothing to do with fraudulent transfer and dematerialisation of shares.

He also said that the company had appealed to the SEBI to settle the issue by levying some penalty,which was rejected. The company has approached the Sebi Administrative Tribunal (SAT) where the matter is now pending.
