The committee of creditors (CoC) for the bankrupt Jet Airways has approved the resolution professional plan submitted by a consortium led by Murari Lal Jalan and Florian Fritsch to acquire the grounded airline under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) process.
“The e-voting concluded today, October 17, and the resolution plan submitted by Murari Lal Jalan and Florian Fritsch has been duly approved by the CoC under section 30(4) of the Code as the successful resolution plan. The ‘Resolution Professional’ is in the process of filing an application in accordance with Section 30(6) of the Code for approval of the said resolution plan by the NCLT and intimation of the same shall be given to the members as required,” the resolution professional (RP) announced via a regulatory filing.
The 17th meeting of Committee of Creditors (CoC) of Jet Airways was held on October 3 and the final resolution plans submitted by two resolution applicants were discussed.
It was decided that they would be put up for e-voting by the CoC members. Once a resolution plan has been approved by the CoC with requisite majority, an application will be filed by the RP for approval by the NCLT.
Apart from the Jalan-Kalrock consortium, the other bids for Jet Airways are by Haryana-based Flight Simulation Technique Centre, Mumbai-based Big Charter and Abu Dhabi’s Imperial Capital Investments LLC.
