Need to get cracking on judicial process to move faster: Uday Kotak

Infrastructure Leasing And Financial Services (IL&FS) has resolved atotal of Rs 55,000-crore debt during the past three-and-a-half years after a new board headed by Uday Kotak took over the beleaguered firm. Further, billionaire banker Kotak's term as chair¬man of IL&FS ends on April 2. The new board, however, continues to face challenges in implementing the resolution, thereby impacting timeliness. Some of these challenges pertain to the existence of complex share-holding arrangements and web of infra group borrowings, non-payment of dues by state utility to ITPCL and delay in receipt of annuities from some state governments. The group continues to implement its three pronged strategy of resolution, restructuring and recovery to maximise recoveries for all classes of creditors while adopting an equitable distribution approach and balancing the interests of stakeholders.
