The lender said it has been dealing with Reliance Home Finance since 2015 and with Reliance Commercial Finance since 2014.

With regard to loan to Reliance Home Finance, as many as 24 lenders were part of a multiple banking arrangement, while in case of Reliance Commercial Finance as many as 22 lenders were part of the loan arrangement.
