The Debt Recovery Tribunal (DRT) in Bengaluru on Friday said it would decide on June 7 on the possibility of disposing of a bunch of interlocutory applications (IAs) filed before it by various defendants and petitioners in the debt recovery case involving UB Group chairman Vijay Mallya.

Hearing on the matter, DRT Presiding Officer C R Benakanahalli said several applications are pending before the court seeking several reliefs. He told counsels for all defendants and petitioners to collectively decide and inform the DRT as to which applications to be heard prior to the original application, filed in August 2013, and which ones to be heard along with the main suit.

Earlier, United Breweries (Holdings), one of the defendants in the case, sought more time to submit further evidence, while the State Bank of India objected to the same as the window for filing evidences had been closed already. UBHL appealed for more time to submit fresh evidences.

Counsel for Diageo Holdings Netherlands (DHN) sought discharge from the proceedings as DHN is not a party to the original application.

Justice Benakanahalli said he would also set a timeline for hearing and disposing of various applications on priority basis. In all, there are 26 interlocutory applications tagged with the original application.
