I have heard there are some Demat accounts which accepts such near nil vue shares as donation, which might gain value on resumption of trading and change of management. Another solution is to write to promoters of these company (i tried no response, yet), or get someone to give exit offers for such shares who will bid for this either inside or off market exchange. (Not aware of anyone).
