NCLAT to hear contempt plea against Anil Ambani on Feb 25
TT Correspondent |  |  22 Jan 2019

The National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) Tuesday deferred the hearing on a contempt petition against Anil Ambani filed by minority shareholders of one of his firms till February 25. A two-member bench headed by Justice S J Mukhopadhaya said that it would hear on February 25 the contempt plea filed by HSBC Daisy Investments (Mauritius) and other minority shareholders over an alleged default in payment against Reliance Infratel and its promoters.

When the matter was mentioned before the NCLAT bench on Tuesday, the appellate tribunal asked it to list on some other day due to the paucity of time.

HSBC Daisy moved the appellate tribunal over alleged default of payment of Rs 230 crore by Reliance Infratel.

As per the consent terms of the agreement between Reliance Infratel, HSBC Daisy and others, recorded by the NCLAT in its order dated June 26, 2018, the Anil Ambani-owned firm was to pay the amount in the next six months.

“Appellants (Reliance Infratel) agree and undertake that they shall jointly and/or severally pay a sum of Rs 230 crore to the respondents in the proportion as set out in Annexure A hereto within a period of 180 days... ,” said the consent term recorded by NCLAT on June 26, 2018.

The six-month period has come to an end following which HSBC Daisy and other nine minority shareholders holding 4.26 per cent stake in Reliance Infratel filed the contempt plea.

Earlier, on January 2, NCLAT had disposed of the contempt plea filed by HSBC Daisy on technical ground.

However, the tribunal had given it liberty withdraw its contempt plea to approach again with its contempt plea against the officials of Reliance Infratel.
