SEBI has already put Adani Wilmar in stage 4 of ASM list and market is buzz that some other Adani group stock may also figure in ASM list in coming times. So, there is trend reversal in regard to Adani group stocks at Dalal Street and hence mar5ket capitalization of Adani group stocks are expected to further come down till more clarity comes.”
