Among those which have given an Expression of Interest (EOI), at least five are tea producers, while two are asset reconstruction companies (ARCs). The former comprise the diversified Apeejay Group, Warren Tea, Luxmi Tea Company that owns the Makaibari tea estate, MK Shah Exports and Dhunseri Petrochem. The last one is present in both tea and oil, a portfolio perfectly matching the potentially insolvent firm.
