Shortages Handling


On the settlement day NSE Clearing accepts pay-in of securities made by members through depositories and identifies the shortages. The members are debited by an amount equivalent to the securities not delivered and valued at a valuation price. This is known as valuation debit. For all such short deliveries NSE Clearing conducts a buying-in auction on the T+2 day, after completion of the pay-out, through the NSE trading system.

If the buy-in auction price is more than the valuation price, the CM is required to make good the difference. All shortages not bought-in are deemed closed out.

Valuation prices at which valuation debits are conducted are calculated as below:

Valuation Price for failure to deliver

The valuation price for securities which were not delivered on the settlement day is the closing price of such securities on the immediate trading day preceding the pay-in day. The closing price is the price as announced by NSE at the end of the trading day..

Valuation Price for Bad Delivery

The valuation price for securities which constitute bad deliveries, shall be the closing price of such securities, on the trading day preceding the settlement day unless prescribed otherwise from time to time by the relevant authority.

Close out will be at the highest price prevailing in the NSE from the day of trading till the auction day or 20% above the official closing price on the auction day, whichever is higher.

Closing out in case of failure to give delivery in Auction Market
