CoC had earlier called for fresh bids, without opening those submitted in the third round. However, the National Company law Tribunal (NCLT) put a stay on the resolution proceedings on a petition filed by the National Housing Bank (NHB). Later, the CoC agreed to consider the bids submitted in the third round, even as there was an option to improve their offers in the fourth round.
According to a business daily, Piramal Enterprises was offering to pay Rs 1,054 crore more as cash upfront than Oaktree capital in the latest round of bidding. Piramal Enterprises has offered to pay Rs 12,700 crore, while Oaktree is willing to make a cash payment of Rs 11,646 crore. Adani Properties has offered a cash payment of Rs 10,750 crore in its bid.
