  1. MRK Gandhi says:

    Whenever there involves change of management control involving take over, it is fair to make buy back of shares of shareholders who do not approve such take over. This helps the minority shareholders who are always victims of take over. Thus limiting compulsory acquisition should be changed to buying back entire shareholding would leave no grievance.
    Further, before approving such take over, SEBI should investigate whether there are any market manipulations resorted to.
