In addition, the decision allowed FRA’s Board of Directors to take a number of penalties  and administrative measures if the financial valuation standards  were violated  and accordingly  this may lead to delisting or cancelling the granted  license besides a period of six months shall be granted to adjust the positions and meet listing requirements .
