It has already initiated the process of moving to higher appellate authority, NCLAT, to enable them to make the payment of the stipulated amount and conclude the transaction by acquiring EMC as per the approved resolution plan, the spokesperson said. According to the spokesperson, just nine weeks before the order, the fund had requested the CoC (Committee of Creditors) of EMC Ltd for additional time to conclude the transaction, in spite of the adverse market conditions. “We find such abrupt order from NCLT is a bit premature as the transaction process is very much on,” the statement said.
