Following the June quarter, banks and other financial institutions have provided further funding to IndoStar Capital ,of Rs380 crore. As of June 30, the firm had a total of Rs255.07 crore in cash and cash equivalents and was in compliance with the necessary capital adequacy ratios.

The business disclosed that it had found flaws in the commercial vehicle loan (CV) portfolio, including a divergence from policies for granting loans and control problems, in May 2022. By September 2022, the portfolio review of SME loans and CV should be finished.
