Further, SEBI states that depositories would activate the ISINs of debt securities issued on a private placement basis only after the Stock Exchange has accorded approval for listing of such securities. 

In case where re-issuances of new debt securities in an existing ISIN needs to be facilitated then Depositories are advised to allot such new debt securities under a new temporary ISIN which would be kept frozen. Upon receipt of listing approval from Stock Exchange(s) for such new debt securities, the debt securities credited in the new temporary ISIN shall be debited and the same shall be credited in the pre-existing ISIN of the existing debt securities, before they become available for trading.

SEBI also mentions if there is any delay in the listing of securities issued on a private  placement basis beyond the timelines specified then the issuer would be liable to pay penal interest of 1% p.a. over the coupon rate for the period of delay to the investor (i.e. from date of allotment to the date of listing). In addition, issuers would be permitted to utilise the issue proceeds of its subsequent two privately placed issuances  of  securities  only  after  receiving  final  listing  approval  from  Stock Exchanges.
