Jaypee Infratech may be in the news for the wrong reasons, but that did not prevent the shareholders of the company from making a moolah till very recently. The stock has returned a whopping 143% since January. In comparison, the S&P Bse Smallcap index is up by 30%.  However, the shares saw a steep correction on Thursday morning down by more than 4.5% to 17.10. Less than a month back, the shares were trading at 24-25 levels.

Yesterday, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said the government has full sympathy with the agitating Noida homebuyers and they can seek relief under the insolvency law. “Those who are aggrieved can get remedy under this law (the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code). If there is any such move, the government’s full sympathy is with those who have paid money and have rights on the flats,” Arun Jaitley said at a post-Cabinet briefing.

As per PTI reports, hundreds of home buyers had been left in the lurch after the Allahabad bench of the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) last week admitted IDBI’s plea for initiating insolvency proceedings against Jaypee Infratech for defaulting on a Rs 526-crore loan. The NCLT has also appointed Anuj Jain the interim resolution professional (IRP) to carry out the proceedings under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code. Observing that all those who have paid money to developers should get their flats, Jaitley said “our full sympathy” is with the aggrieved home buyers. The finance minister said there is a provision for running a company under insolvency proceedings.

Jaypee Infratech which is a part of the debt-ridden Jaypee group has defaulted on Rs 526.11 crore outstanding loan to IDBI. The company, which is into road construction and real estate business, has constructed the Yamuna Expressway, connecting Delhi and Agra. The biggest incomplete project of Japyee is the Wish Town project in Noida on the outskirts of the national capital.

The company is under severe scrutiny as it finds itself  among the 12 big corporate loan defaulters against whom bankruptcy proceedings have been initiated under a new law. Other companies against whom such proceedings have been initiated include Bhushan Steel, Bhushan Steel and Power, Electrosteel Steels and Lanco Infratech, Alok Industries and Jyoti Structures.

    as finance minister Mr. Arun Jaitley said the govt. has full sympathy with flat buyers. it means people/citizens here in India only have to live on the sympathy of their(public's) own elected govt.(s) and expect no help to sufferers no action against the defaulter(s). I appericiate his words of sympathy inability of his govt. to safe guard the interests of citizens of Country.
