The Company filed on Appeal in the Appellate Court (DRAT) against this order raising substantial legal and factual grounds, along with an application for waiver of the pre-deposit. However, the application for waiver was dismissed by the DRAT on 12th October 2017 and consequently the appeal was dismissed by DRAT on 30thNovember 2017 on account of non-deposit of 75% of the amount ordered by DRT.

In the meanwhile, the Securitisation company attempted to take possession of the Companys Assets in 2009. However, with timely action, the Company was able to obtain stay from the Honble Punjab & Haryana High Court. In the appeal LPA 1755/2010 filed by the company, Honble Punjab & Haryana High Court vide order dated 17.12.2010 was pleased to stay any coercive action against the company, if taken under SARFAESI Act for taking over the possession of the companys property.

A sum of Rs.5 crore and companys surplus land measuring10.04 acres (valued at Rs.18 cr by securitization company) was given by the company to the securitization company (including Kotak Bank, assignee of ICICI) in compliance of orders passed by High Court and Supreme Court.

As Securitiation company failed to share Rs.450 lakhs with KMBL out of the sale proceeds of 10.04 acre land of the company as was ordered by Honble Supreme court vide order dated 7.5.2012, KMBL filed Contempt Petition in Honble Supreme court which directed Securitiation company to deposit Rs.450 lakh in the Court. Finally, Honble Supreme court disposed off the contempt petition on 23.9.2019 and released said Rs.450 lakhs alongwith accrued interest to KmBl. In view of the fact that KMBL received Rs.6.50 crore (Rs.2 crore out of deposit of Rs.5 crore made by Company in Punjab & Haryana High Court and Rs.4.50 crore out of sale of Companys 10.04 acre land), KMBL and Coventry settled the pending matter OA 2/2007 and filed a joint application before DRT-2 Delhi in this regard, which then disposed off the matter as settled vide order dated 6.2.2021. The joint application inter-alia records the stipulation: "With the receipt of entire OTS amount of Rs.6.50 Crores along with accrued interest, the Applicant Bank/KMBL is left with no further claim against the Defendant No.1". However, it was agreed that Counter-claim of Coventry will continue against other lenders / assignees.

Pursuant to DRT-1 Judgement / Recovery Certificate dated 18-01-2016, the Recovery Officer-II of DRT-1, Delhi in February 2019 served a Notice for settling sale proclamation for the sale of the Factory Property. Company has filed an application CM 39-40/2019 in LPA 1755/2010 in Honble Punjab & Haryana High Court which has issued notice on the said application on 27.1.2019 in which company has prayed for restraining the ld. RO from proceeding ahead in the matter.Companys application Ma40/2017 is also pending before Presiding Officer, DRT- 1 Delhi wherein company has submitted that ld. RO-DRT, Delhi has no jurisdiction in the matter and have prayed for transfer of recovery proceedings to DRT, Chandigarh. Companys application vide Dy. No.2273 dt 8.4.2021 is also pending before the Recovery Officer ("RO") DRT-1 Delhi wherein company has inter-alia prayed for keeping the RC proceedings in abeyance till MA40/2017 is decided by the PO and till LPA 1755/2010 is decided by Honble Punjab & Haryana High Court.

Whether the amounts claimed by creditors / securitization company is exaggerated or not would be decided by Honble Punjab & Haryana High Court LPA 1755/2010 which is pending.There is a strong possibility that eventually a refund comes out due from the securitization company (Alchemist) to the company.
