Great Indian Nautanki Company defaults on loan
As per media reports, in May last year, the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) admitted a petition filed by IDBI Bank Ltd. seeking to invoke Insolvency and Bankruptcy proceedings against Wizcraft International Entertainment Private Limited for failing to pay around Rs 60 crore, an amount, which the original loan borrower -- Great Indian Nautanki Company Private Limited (GINCL) failed to pay.
The bank alleged that Wizcraft being the corporate guarantor to the loan it granted to GINCL had issued an "unconditional and unrecoverable" Corporate Guarantee by which it undertook to pay forthwith upon demand without any demur all amounts payable by the borrower -- GINCL. The bank even issued proceedings under the Securitisation and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest (SARFAESI) Act, in this matter, the reports said.
