Why premium on buyback adjusted against securities premium but not with free reserves ? Why securities premium not considered as free reserve?

Free reserves are reserves which are available for distribution as dividends. Securities premium cannot be paid as dividends and hence not a free reserves. The premium on buy back is first set off against securities premium as securities premium has limited use. If SP balance is not sufficient, P&L is used.
