New Delhi: The National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) on Tuesday approved Tata Steel Ltd’s resolution plan for debt ridden Bhushan Steel Ltd under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC).

Bhushan Steel’s admitted financial debt stood at Rs56,051.16 crore as on 1 February 2018, and it is one of the 12 non-performing asset (NPA) accounts notified by the Reserve Bank of India last year.

At 1.20pm, Tata Steel shares were up 3.85% at Rs633.60 on BSE, while Bhushan Steel shares rose 4.81% to Rs23.95.

While approving Tata Steel’s plan, NCLT dismissed a plea by Bhushan Steel Employees Union opposing Tata Steel’s resolution plan for being in violation of Section 29A of IBC and imposed a cost of Rs1 lakh.

The tribunal also dismissed a plea moved by engineering major Lasen &Toubro Ltd, one of the operational creditors of Bhushan Steel, seeking a higher priority in recovery of loan as a secured creditors and ordered it to pay Rs1 lakh as fine.

The tribunal also rejected Bhushan Energy’s petition to ensure continuance of its power purchase agreement with Bhushan Steel, which is proposed to be terminated under Tata Steel’s resolution plan.

Tata Steel Ltd has offered an upfront payment of Rs35,200 crore to lenders, along with a 12.27% stake in the debt-laden steel maker, according to its resolution plan. This plan was approved the committee of creditors for debt ridden Bushan Steel with a 99.8% majority vote after testing its “commercial viability and feasibility”.

According to the resolution plan, Tata Steel has also proposed to pay arrears of salary due to the employees of Bhushan Steel and ensure continuation of employment.

The resolution plan also proposes to pay back Bhushan Steel’s operational creditors to the extent of Rs1,000 crore and another Rs200 crore on a pro rata basis spread over one year, depending upon “vitality to running the business”.

The other resolution applicants in the insolvency process were Bhushan Steel employees and JSW Steel.
