Inviting asset reconstruction companies (ARCs) to put their bids for transferring the loan account of Apollo Distilleries & Breweries, the city-based lender said it will expedite the due diligence process and make available the documents at one place for verification of the prospective buyer.
However, PNB said it will be at its sole discretion to withdraw the account offered for transfer, without assigning any reasons.
