In terms of para 5 of the Annex to abovesaid, FIIs are not allowed to engage in short selling and are required to take delivery of securities purchased and give delivery of securities sold.

Vide AP DIR Circular No.23 dated 1st Janaury 2008 ( Today), It has now been decided in consultation with Government of India and SEBI, to permit Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) registered with SEBI and sub-accounts of FIIs to short sell, lend and borrow equity shares of Indian companies.

Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but
when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
