Insolvency petition against RCom withdrawn by CDB


On January 5, the biggest foreign lender to India's Reliance Communications Ltd (RCom), China Development Bank (CDB) withdrew a petition seeking to drag the indebted telecoms carrier into insolvency.

A lawyer for CDB told the National Company Law Tribunal that the Chinese bank had filed to withdraw the petition. The tribunal allowed CDB's plea to go forward.

CDB, which is owed around $2 billion along with two other Chinese banks, had filed the petition in November seeking insolvency proceedings against RCom, saying a large amount of loan principal and interest payments was overdue.

After RCom's debt-reduction plan, including an asset sale to Reliance Jio Infocomm, was announced recently, CDB said that it was in talks with RCom.
