The National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) on Friday asked the Delhi Gymkhana Club to reply to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs’s (MCA’s) allegation by May 8. It has scheduled the matter for further hearing on May 13.

Alleging that the club was being run in a manner which is oppressive and prejudicial to public interests, the MCA moved a plea, under Sections 241 and 242 of the Companies Act, seeking to takeover the management of the club. The MCA also demanded that no new member should be inducted into it during the pendency of the appeal.
