Further, according to the data given on the exchanges, IL&FS has addressed debt of Rs17,640cr as on June 30, 2020. These were done through a  combination of - completed asset sales, debt repayment to Green Entities, debt discharged in Non-Green entities and available cash balance across the Group.

Further, the company said, "Efforts towards resolution of additional debt of Rs6,600cr are likely to continue beyond FY21, as the New Board expects the resolution of major holding companies to take a longer time".
