New Tirupur Area Development Corporation and IL&FS spat reaches Registrar of Companies

The dispute between New Tirupur Area Development Corporation Limited (NTADCL) and its shareholder Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Ltd (IL&FS) over debt repayment has now reached the doorstep of the Registrar of Companies (RoC), Coimbatore. Due to the deteriorating financial position of the NTADCL, a corporate debt restructuring CDR plan was implemented on March 29 2012, as part of which the State government infused 150 crore into the NTADCL. As per the plan, 30% of the IL&FS debt was converted into equity. After the implementation of the CDR, the senior loan to be repaid by the NTADCL was Rs 120.27 crore. In its letter to the RoC, the NTADCL management has alleged that the deduction of Rs 41.24 crore by the erstwhile IL&FS management was illegal and that the short disbursement of senior loan by the IL&FS resulted in more financial implications. The NTADCL management decided to stop payment to the IL&FS based on legal opinion, it said. The NTADCL also alleged that it had been defrauded by the erstwhile IL&FS management. It pointed out that out of the nine directors, three were nominees of the IL&FS — L Krishnan, G Mahalingam and Baijiu Mathew — and sought the intervention of the RoC to direct the nominee directors of the IL&FS not to participate on the agenda items related to IL&FS senior loan disbursement issue. Based on the NTADCL’s letter, the RoC sought clarifications from the nominee directors of the IL&FS. In a letter, dated March 5, the RoC said that till the matter was under consideration, the nominee directors should refrain from attending the board meeting relating to the agenda items under conflict of interest. Responding to the RoC, the IL&FS said its new board (constituted after 2018 fiasco), including Mr Mahalingam, have been appointed by the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), Mumbai on the recommendation of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. The new board and nominee directors have been granted immunity by NCLT and said that the question of conflict of interest does not arise. It also said that the issues raised by the NTADCL were already sub judice before the NCLT. It also denied the allegations of fraud and said that the NTADCL had unilaterally stopped repaying the IL&FS Senior Loan to the tune of Rs 52.92 crore and requested the RoC to dismiss the NTADCL’s compliant and restore the status quo. Meanwhile, it is learnt that Mr Mahalingam has resigned, and has been replaced by another director from the IL&FS.

Workers are engaged in repairing potholes on the Noida to Sarai Kale Khan stretch and the Sarai Kale Khan to Noida stretch. The loop connecting the Film City road to the DND will be next.

Reimagining the Code

The low recovery rate for creditors suggests IBC needs to be far more effective; the IL&FS solution is worth a look. Kotak Mahindra Bank vice chairman and managing director Uday Kotak’s observation that a public interest board mechanism be considered for certain cases under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) need to be heeded. In a media interview, Kotak has pointed out that group resolutions via the corporate insolvency resolution (CIRP) have resulted in a low recovery rate for creditors, bringing them disproportionate pain. Moreover, resolutions for bankrupt non-banking finance companies, too, have attracted bids that are far smaller than the liquidation value. There is no doubt that in a small market, in which asset restructuring companies have limited resources, prices of assets have been beaten down due to a dearth of buyers. As Kotak said, the IBC is a fine piece of legislation but needs to be far more effective—a recovery rate of below 30% suggests it is not. So while staying within the basic tenets of the law, a public interest board for cases where the debt is more than Rs 25,000 crore could be looked at. .

Rules governing the Indian financial sector need to be rewritten to realise the economy’s growth potential, said Kotak Mahindra Bank managing director Uday Kotak. Domestic banks are losing out to global rivals without the leeway to build scale and the inability to underwrite riskier credit due to poor recoveries from bankrupt companies, he said in an interview. India is well placed to upstage China on the global platform with the banking industry at a “Cinderella” moment that provides scope for expanding loans to deleveraged corporates, he said. “Indian banks are losing big time to international banks,” Kotak said. “As a banker,with adequate margin, I would have been very comfortable to lend against the security of Ambuja Cements and ACC shares ” he said, referring to Adani’s buyout of the companies from Holcim.

The ED had opposed the plea claiming that the proceedings against Parthasarathy could not be dropped in view of the charge of criminal conspiracy related to the proceeds of crime levelled against him and others and in view of the glaring facts showing how the proceeds were generated layered integrated in regular business transactions.
