D B Realty is a real estate development company which has a strong franchise in Mumbai, Pune and adjoining regions. It is engaged in residential, commercial, retail and also projects that pertain to mass housing and cluster development.
As per the new rules, any default by the listed companies to financial institutions have to be reported to the exchange on the same day and the same should be put up by the exchange as well as by the company on their website.
This was introduced as an investor protection measure after it was found that companies were informing the stock exchanges only one quarter after the actual default leading to investors being unaware of the reason as the stock prices slid.
D B Realty was floated jointly by Abhishek Goenka along with Shahid Balwa of the Balwa group. Original, the company was created as Dynamix Balwa Realty which was later renamed to D B Realty. The stock is listed on the NSE and the BSE.
