The company has responded to said notices and is negotiating with various feasible options, Kohinoor Foods said in its March quarter results.

Regarding Hindustan Motors, the company has stated that the movement of the company’s share price or the push in the volume of its shares is purely based on market sentiment and the company has no input/comment to this respect because it is in no way linked with such a price movement.

“There is no pending information or announcements, which have an impact on the price movement of the company’s shares on our side. The price movement or the surge in trading volume on the shares of society is purely market driven and the company or its promoters or any key management personnel have nothing to do with it.Furthermore, we have also asked our RTA group and Promoters/Promoters and have been advised that they haven’t bought/sold any shares in the last 6 months,” said Hindustan Motors on May 31, 2022.

According to media reports, Hindustan Motors is likely in talks with a European automotive company focused on the electric vehicle (EV) space for a joint venture.
