The two main stock exchanges will suspend trading of shares of grounded Kingfisher Airlines Ltd from December 1 for failing to comply with rules on reporting financial results, the bourses said in separate notices.

Kingfisher, founded by Vijay Mallya and once India's No. 2 carrier, has not flown for more than two years for want of cash. The company last reported its financial results for the three months ended December 2013.

The exchanges will also suspend trading of UB Engineering Ltd, part of Mallya's UB Group, from December 1, they said citing the company's failure to report financial results for two consecutive quarters to end-June.

Several other smaller companies are also facing trading suspension for the same reason, according to the stock exchange notices. >http://bit.ly/1xs89fP and >http://bit.ly/1tojnxx
