In this matter, the Tribunal disposed of 6 applications simultaneously:
CA(IB) No. 1305/KB/2019 was filed by the Liquidator, praying to direct fifteen secured creditors to either relinquish their security interest under Section 52, or to proceed under it. Apart from Laxmi Vilas Bank which had 2.49% security interest in the CD’s assets, all other creditors had relinquished their claims. The Tribunal noted that the liquidation process could not proceed without the cooperation of creditors, and took it upon itself to relinquish their claim. Resultantly, the present application was allowed, and the Liquidator was directed to proceed with the liquidation process.
