CRISIL and CARE Ratings have assigned an RP4 rating to the proposed RP, which is at par with the regulatory requirements.
SBI (lead bank), Axis Bank (lead bank for WC), and other lenders have approved the resolution plan. It shall be effective from April 1, 2021, and will be considered implemented upon completion of the required actions as per RBI guidelines and the terms of the RP stated the company in a regulatory filing.
The sustainable and unsustainable debt shall be repaid in accordance with the modified repayment schedule, according to the conditions of the RP accepted by lenders.
The working capital consortium's existing working capital facilities of Rs580 crore would be maintained as earlier.
The interest rate on sustainable debt of Rs2,350 crore will be increased to 8.50% p.a. (tied to MCLR), while unsustainable debt (including accrued interest) of Rs788 crore will be lowered to 0.01% p.a.
The loan will be repaid gradually over a period of 15 years, which is approximately 7 years longer than the current repayment plan.
