As many as four firms, including private sector lender Lakshmi Vilas Bank and infrastructure major IL&FS Engineering and Construction Company have lined up rights issue worth more than Rs 800 crore.
Mirc Electronics, which sells the Onida brand of TVs and drug firm Neuland Laboratories also plans to raise funds by issuing equity shares to existing shareholders.
These four firms, which had filed their draft documents with Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) this year, are awaiting market regulator's approval.
These companies are collectively planning to garner Rs up to 863 crore through rights issue.
In rights issue, shares are issued to the existing investors as per their holding at pre-determined price and ratio.
Lakshmi Vilas Bank is planning to raise up to Rs 505 crore, while IL&FS Engineering and Construction Company plans to raise Rs 300 crore. Mirc Electronics have plans for Rs 33 crore and Neuland Laboratories for Rs 25 crore.
Moreover, Sebi has approved the rights issue of Mukand, Wheels India, Easun Reyrolle and Denis Chem Lab since the beginning of the year. However, Polson Ltd withdrew their rights issue in January.

DHIRUBHAI ENJOYED IN WEALTH CREATION

Leading businessman Anil Ambani today said more than creating wealth for himself, his father late Dhirubhai Ambani derived greater happiness from creating wealth for masses. "If you ever asked what part of being an entrepreneur he (late Ambani) enjoyed the most, he would say, 'I enjoy creating wealth. But what I enjoy even more is in creating wealth for the people of the country,'" the Anil Ambani Group chairman said while addressing an industry event here. It can be noted that the late Ambani, who had a humble beginning as a primary school teacher's son in Gujarat, is regarded as the father of capital markets and the equity cult, who made millions of investors millionaires with the IPO of Reliance Textile Industries in 1977.

BEAR GRIP ON INDIAN STOCK MARKET

RECORDS 1 WEEKLY FALL IN 6 WEEKS
Gripped by fear psychosis due to geo-political aftershocks, key stock market indices were on a sticky wicket for the fifth day today as both Sensex and Nifty fell over 1 per cent to hit their one-month lows. The sharp plunge left investors poorer by over Rs 95,000 crore as the market cap stood at Rs 1,27,08,846 crore. Risk appetite took a hit after the Economic Survey said achieving the high end of the 6.75-7.5 per cent growth projected previously will be difficult. This is markets' first weekly fall in six.
Weakness in the rupee against the American currency and lacklustre global shares dragged down the indices, too. The BSE 30-share Sensex remained in the negative zone and settled down 317.74 points, or 1.01 per cent, at 31,213.59, its weakest closing since July 4. The index had tumbled 794.08 points in the last four sessions. The NSE Nifty after cracking the 9,700-mark to hit a low of 9,685.55, finally settled lower 109.45 points, or 1.11 per cent…
