Profit booking emerged on the Financial Technologies (India) (FTIL) counter after media reports suggested that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in its status report submitted to the finance ministry on Thursday, 12 September 2013, on alleged financial law violations by National Spot Exchange (NSEL), indicated that the crisis-ridden NSEL may have violated money laundering laws and a few foreign exchange procedures.

NSEL had to shut down its operations since 1 August 2013 following the government direction in the wake of violation of certain rules. NSEL is grappling with the problem of payment settlement after the suspension. It has given eight-month plan to settle Rs 5574.31 crore to investors. NSEL is scheduled to make a payout every Tuesday for 30 weeks, ending in March 2014. FTIL is one of the two promoters of the NSEL.

The ED was one of the two working groups that was looking into NSEL's payment crisis.

As per reports, once the finance ministry and a panel of secretaries, headed by economic affairs secretary Arvind Mayaram, go through the contents of the ED report, legal action could be initiated against those involved in the operations of NSEL.

The ED, according to reports, could register cases under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and may also launch a preliminary inquiry to probe forex violations under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).

FTIL's net profit rose 6.84% to Rs 81.21 crore on 15.44% growth in total income to Rs 169.54 crore in Q1 June 2013 over Q1 June 2012. The Q1 result was announced after market hours on Tuesday, 30 July 2013.
