SEBI conducted investigations in the scrip of Havell India Ltd. for the period October 15 2001 to December 28, 2001. Investigations revealed that HCL along with the other client Focus Portfolio Ltd have created a false and misleading impression of trading in the scrip of HIL for the period under scrutiny by entering into synchronised deals, thereby HCL violated the provisions of Regulation 4 (b) and (d) of SEBI (Prohibition of Fraudulent and Unfair Trade Practices relating to Securities Market) Regulations, 1995. 
Pursuant to investigations, Show Cause Notice was issued to HCL and its director Shri L N Agarwal asking them to show cause, as to why suitable directions including such direction prohibiting them from buying, selling, or dealing in securities for a specified period should not be issued. Consequently, SEBI passed the order after considering the submissions made by HCL.
The order has been passed on January 31, 2006. The order shall come into force with immediate effect.
