A consortium of lenders led by State Bank of India has filed a petition before the Supreme Court against a National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) ruling that Essar Steel’s operational creditors have to be treated on a par with financial creditors at the time of settling claims. The insolvency court’s ruling is expected to have a far-reaching impact and could significantly improve recoveries for operational creditors, who were so far considered to be a notch below financial creditors.

The modus operandi of the fund diversion was similar to the one used by Bhushan Steel Ltd, which once belonged to the Brij Bhushan Singal group. The amount involved matches the figure that the income-tax department said had been diverted over a seven-year period. In addition, the CBI uncovered discrepancies between the books of BPSL and the shell companies. Amounts totaling Rs 537.85 crore were diverted to 86 shell companies “without any obvious purpose” and were shown as payments made by BPSL, the CBI said in a complaint. “Loans were availed of from 33 banks, purportedly for working capital and purchase of plant and machinery. However, they diverted over Rs 2,300 crore to over 200 shell companies,” said one person.

A two-member NCLAT bench headed by Chairman Justice S J Mukhopadhaya has asked IL&FS and the Ministry of Corporate Affairs to file an affidavit within two weeks stating the time it would take to decide on it. The appellate tribunal has also asked as to whether any such red entities could be categorized into a green or amber list of IL&FS companies. Meanwhile, during the course of hearing, IL&FS informed that three amber listed companies would be upgraded to green entities as they have signed a term sheet with their lenders for the restructuring of their debts, etc. Continue reading (https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/industry/banking/finance/banking/nclat-asks-ilfs-govt-about-steps-taken-for-55-loss-making-red-firms/articleshow/70196957.cms) ** Jet Airways case: Dutch insolvency administrator moves NCLAT ———————————————————— (A three-member NCLAT bench headed by Chairman Justice S J Mukhopadhaya has also asked the Dutch bankruptcy administrator to assist in the insolvency proceedings of Jet Airways which is currently going on in India.) Dutch Bankruptcy administrator on Friday moved the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) on the Jet Airways matter, which has agreed to hear the case. A three-member NCLAT bench headed by Chairman Justice S J Mukhopadhaya has also asked the Dutch bankruptcy administrator to assist in the insolvency proceedings of Jet Airways which is currently going on in India. Furthermore, the Dutch insolvency court administrator has agreed before the Tribunal to not sell the confiscated assets of the debt-ridden carrier. It may be noted that NCLAT has also issued a notice to the consortium of Jet Airways’ lenders, directing them to file their reply within a period of two weeks.
