Glencore plc, a Swiss-based commodity trader, and Bunge Ltd., a US agricultural commodities trader, is a recent example of two companies that have signed such an agreement. In May 2017, Glencore undertook an informal approach to buying bears. Shortly thereafter, the parties agreed on a standstill agreement preventing Glencore from accumulating shares or making a formal bunge offer until a later date. Hyderabad violated all the clauses of the agreement: externally, by plotting with Pakistan, to which it secretly lent £15 million; in defense through the construction of a large semi-private army; in communication, by disrupting border traffic and transit traffic of Indian Railways. [18] India has also been accused of violating the agreement by imposing an economic blockade. It turned out that the state of Mumbai was disrupting the supply of Hyderabad without Delhi`s knowledge. The government has promised to include the file with provincial governments, but scholar Lucien Benichou says this has never happened. India also delayed India`s arms shipments to Hyderabad, which was later described as a violation of the status quo agreement. [19] On August 12, 1947, J&K sought to conclude a status quo agreement with India and Pakistan, stating, „The government of Jammu and Kashmir would like a status quo agreement with the Union of India and Pakistan on all matters that are the subject of agreements with the outgoing Anglo-Indian government.” The standstill agreement was separate from the instrument of accession, formulated at about the same time by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which was a legal document that implied a mission of sovereignty to the extent defined in the instrument. [1] A status quo agreement can be reached between governments for better governance. Menon then went to Jammu to inform the Maharajah of the government`s vision, then the Maharajah finally signed the instrument of accession on October 26 and Menon returned to Delhi with Mahajan. The state of Jammu and Kashmir, which joined both India and Pakistan, decided to remain independent. She proposed to sign status quo agreements with the two gentlemen.

Pakistan immediately agreed, but India requested further discussions. The agreement is particularly relevant, as the bidder would have access to the confidential financial information of the target company. Upon receipt of the potential acquirer`s commitment, the target company will have more time to put in place other defenses during the acquisition. In certain situations, the target company undertakes to buy back shares of the target company in return for a mark-up for the potential acquirer. At the international level, it may be an agreement between countries to maintain current facts, in which a liability owed to each other is suspended for a specified period. States that had internal autonomy among the British ceded only three subjects to the Indian government: defense, foreign policy, and communication. The states in which administrative powers are exercised by the Crown have signed another instrument of accession which has transferred all residual powers and jurisdictions from the Indian government. The leaders of the states that had intermediate status signed a third type of membership that preserves the degree of power they had among the British. Leaders who agreed to membership obtained several other guarantees, such as their extraterritorial rights. Many leaders considered this to be the best deal, given that the limited scope of the instrument of accession and the promise of extended autonomy attract them.

The majority of States signed the instrument of accession between May 1947 and 15 August 1947. Problems have arisen with the few border states like Jodhpur that have tried to negotiate with Pakistan, with Junagadh that have actually joined Pakistan, and with Hyderabad and Kashmir that have declared that they want to remain independent.
