The National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) has directed the new board of Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL&FS) to pay lenders on a pro-rata basis first as opposed to the normal course of payment prescribed under Section 53 (distribution of assets) of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC). This will be done as part of the interim distribution.

“We are of the view that IL&FS and its entities may take all steps to complete the resolution process as per the resolution framework and submit their application for approval before the NCLT by June 30, 2022,” the NCLAT said.
