(SFIO) in connection with the alleged National
Spot Exchange Ltd (NSEL) scam and related matters in two weeks.
The report was with the Centre, counsel appearing for various parties said when the government’s petition against Financial Technologies
(India) Ltd (FTIL) — now renamed 63 Moon Technologies — came up for hearing in the NCLT
The hearing was adjourned to October 3 for arguments on the impleading petitions, while the final hearing is expected in the latter part of the month.
According to earlier reports, the government had directed the SFIO
almost an year back to probe FTIL
and its associate companies in connection with alleged irregularities in the NSEL.
The Centre had initially filed a petition against FTIL
in the NCLT, Delhi. The matter was later transferred to the Chennai bench. The government, in February last year, directed the merger of NSEL with FTIL
in the wake of a Rs 5,600 crore crisis at NSEL.
