Lenders consortium led by State Bank of India (SBI)
showed confidence in solving Jet Airways
crisis by March end, media reports suggested.
SBI chairman Rajnish Kumar said that lenders would make every effort to keep the airline from slipping into bankruptcy as it would further erode the company’s value, media reports said on Wednesday evening.
The turnaround plan proposed by the SBI-led lenders’ consortium will involve a change in its existing management, reports added. Accordingly, the bank has asked Goyal, his wife Anita, and two nominee directors, Nasim Zaidi and Gaurang Shetty, to step down from the board as well as executive roles.
