Bakshi has transferred his shares in Connaught Plaza Restaurants Pvt Ltd (CPRL), which operates McDonald's chain in north and east India, to the US-based fast food major and both are seeking to withdraw cases filed against each other before the NCLAT after entering into an out-of-court settlement.
"You settle it, unless we would direct you to pay certain amount," said the NCLAT adding that it may fix terms of settlement.
The counsel appearing for Bakshi informed that he has already deposited ₹10 crore to the Debt Recovery Tribunal, received from the sale of his personal shares in the CPRL.
However, the bench said: "Every time a cry is coming from your side that we would give them this amount and that amount, but not a final settlement is coming."
The NCLAT has directed to list the matter on 18 September for orders in the matters.
The appellate tribunal was hearing an intervention plea by HUDCO, claiming dues of ₹195 crore from Bakshi.
The NCLAT had admitted HUDCO's plea on 15 May, 2019 in the cases filed by Bakshi and McDonald's India Pvt Ltd (MIPL) against each other.
After reaching an out-of-court settlement settlement for an undisclosed amount, Bakshi and MIPL had approached the NCLAT to withdraw cases filed against each other for management control of CPRL.
However, HUDCO had opposed their settlement saying Bakshi and his related entities owed dues of ₹194.98 crore, which Debt Recovery Tribunal had also ordered Bakshi to pay.
Earlier, in July this year the NCLAT had directed Bakshi to file an affidavit within a week detailing the amount he has received from the sale of his shares in CPRL as part of his settlement with the US-based fast food chain.
