The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and National Stock Exchange (NSE) informed that DHFL will be suspended from trading with effect from June 14, that is closing hours of trading on June 11, 2021.
"Dewan Housing Finance Corporation Limited vide its announcement dated June 08, 2021 informed the Exchange regarding approval of the resolution plan by National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), Mumbai Bench which provides for delisting of equity shares of the Company. Further, the Company vide announcement dated June 9, 2021 stated that no value was attributable to the equity shares as per the liquidation value of the Company estimated by registered valuers appointed under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India. Further, Company has also mentioned that the written order of the NCLT approving the Resolution Plan is still awaited and all disclosures made remain subject to such orders," stated both the exchanges in their respective circulars.
On Tuesday, making an about-turn, the Mumbai bench of the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) chaired by HP Chaturvedi and Ravikumar Duraisamy, allowed Piramal Group to take over DHFL under the bankruptcy code for as low as Rs 37,500 crore against a claim of close to Rs 85,000 crore.
It had on May 25 asked the committee of creditors to consider the Wadhawans offer of paying back almost Rs 93,000 crore to the lenders and creditors, which was stayed by the NCLAT after the Pirmal group challenged it. But on Monday the bench cleared the Pirmal bid saying they respected the commercial wisdom of the lenders and thus also rejected the former DHFL promoters' offer to pay back more than 100 per cent of the claims.
In November 2019, DHFL became the first NBFC to be referred for bankruptcy by the RBI.
