Adani Group, Piramal Enterprises among four bidders for DHFL

The Adani Group and the Piramal Enterprises are among the four companies that have submitted bids for DHFL, the first insolvent financial services provider. Sources also noted that on 17 October, the last date of the presentation of final offers, the US-based Oaktree and SC Lowy from Hong Kong submitted bids for DHFL.

The Reserve Bank sent insolvency proceedings to the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) in November from the DHFL, the third-largest pure-play mortgage lender. 

DHFL was the first financial firm under section 227 to be referred to NCLT by the RBI. 

Before that, the board of directors of the company had been revoked and R. Subramaniakumar was appointed as the administrator. He is also the insolvency and bankruptcy code (IBC) resolution expert.

The bid value, Oaktree submitted the bid for the entire business was RS 20.000, as against the admitted liability of RS 95,000 crore, with Rs 10,000 crore in cash treated.   

According to sources, it would be a written off of Rs 65,000 crore to lenders controlled by State Bank of India (SBI), if Oaktree bids were to be approved.

According to a transaction record during FY07 to FY19, DHFL registered fraudulent transactions worth Rs 17,394 crore.

The diversion of funds by DHFL promoters resulted in lenders being listed as ‘fraud’. 

The forensic audit identified another fraudulent transaction of Rs 12,705.53.

In the underestimation of the insurance firm, the third fraud worth Rs 2.150.84 was detected.

MahaRERA orders Sanjeevani Vyapar LLP to refund buyer as project lacks CC

After the project did not obtain a BMC commencement certificate (CC), MahaRera recently ordered a builder’s reimbursement of Rs 8 lakh with 9% interest to the buyer.

The project consisted of a plot in Kanjurmarg requiring clearance from the Defence Ministry. Since MOD failed to agree, the BMC failed to provide the CC and the builder claimed that he would provide buyers with alternative housing in Airoli.

These grounds come under the refund provisions of the RERAAct in compliance with Section 18 for not continuing with the project. 

MahaRera pointed out that the reservation was subject to a loan given to the purchaser because there was no municipal project approval. Before the MahaRera, a complaint was lodged about the ‘Avante’ project in the central Mumbai suburbs of Hariyali, Kanjurmarg.
