Listed and unlisted are the two types of stocks in which listed can be described as the ones registered in stock exchanges while unlisted is not registered.
A stock is a type of protection that suggests the holder owns a certain percentage of the listed firm. Stocks are the backbone of virtually any portfolio and are purchased and sold mostly on stock markets, while private sales are possible. "Shares" are the units of stock. These activities must comply with government laws designed to protect stakeholders from deceptive practices. Organizations do not own investors; investors own shares issued by companies.

As traders and investors, I reckon we concentrate more on the performances, news, notifications and historical trends of listed stocks as only they are accessible to us.
We can only invest in or trade in listed stocks, not unlisted stocks, because a listed company is one whose shares are publicly traded on a stock exchange, and an unlisted company is one whose shares are generally held by private members.
A listed stock is one that a company issues through an initial public offering so that its shares can be traded on exchanges. Unlisted stocks are those that are not traded on any exchanges and cannot be traded directly. If you want to trade an unlisted stock, you must do so over the counter.
Apart from the general differences between listed and unlisted stocks, there are some other conditions on the stocks of unlisted companies. If you purchase the stocks of an unlisted company, those shares will have a lock-in period of 1 year from the date of listing. This means you can only sell the shares on the stock market, after 1 year from the IPO of the stock.
Listed stocks can be traded while unlisted cannot. Which companies list their stocks?
Listed stocks can be traded while unlisted cannot. Listed stocks are the ones that have filled for an IPO, and the SEBI has listed them. Unlisted are the ones where they are on the verge of filling an IPO and then, based on the results, then come under listed stocks.
