“The company is unable to proceed with asset monetisation resulting in delay in debt servicing, due to prohibition on the company to dispose off, alienate, encumber either directly or indirectly or otherwise part with the possession, of any assets except in the ordinary course of business such as payment of salary and statutory dues, pursuant to order dated November 20, 2019 passed by the Hon’ble Delhi High Court, and Orders dated December 3, 2019 and December 5, 2019 passed by the Hon’ble Debts Recovery Tribunal, Mumbai and Order dated November 4, 2020 passed by the Hon’ble Bombay High Court, ” Reliance Capital said.

Reliance Capital had reported a consolidated net loss of Rs 2,577 crore in September quarter, against a net loss of Rs 96 crore in the same period a year ago. In September 2019, Care Ratings had downgraded Reliance Capital’s Rs 17,000-crore debt to default grade ‘D’. The agency attributed its action to the company delaying by a day its payment on several non-convertible debentures (NCDs) it had issued.
