The debt-ridden company went into insolvency in 2017 after it was taken to the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) by a consortium of its lenders led by IDBI Bank. During the first round of insolvency proceedings, lenders had rejected the Rs 7,350-crore bid of Lakshdeep, part of Suraksha Group.

A second chance

In October 2018, Interim Resolution Professional (IRP) Anuj Jain started a fresh initiative to resolve the debt of the real estate major on the NCLT’s direction. In the second round of the bidding process, the lenders rejected the bids of Suraksha Realty and state-owned NBCC.
