BVPL was set up in 2007 as a special purpose vehicle promoted by OPG group, having substantial experience in power and steel sectors. In April 2019, ICRA moved the long term rating on bank facilities to the tune of ₹2,062.40 crore to the company to 'Issuer Not Cooperating' category.
ICRA said it had been trying to seek information from the company to monitor its performance, but despite repeated requests, the management of the company remained non-cooperative. It had also advised lenders and investors of the company to exercise appropriate caution while using the rating action as it might not adequately reflect the credit risk profile of the company.
