“Repayment of short-term loans, term loans, NCDs, overdue working capital loans (converted into working capital term loans) is to be extended up to a maximum of 2 years,” the company said. There will be interest moratorium between March 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021 and interest during the period will be converted into funded interest term loan which will payable by December 2021, it said.


Over to Kamath panel

The deal will be vetted by the KV Kamath committee. In October 2020, Care Ratings put Rs 6,278 crore bank facilities of Future Retail under credit watch with negative implications.

The deal will now be vetted by the committee headed by KV Kamath. As part of the recast plan, cash credit will be continued at reduced level based on bank assessment and all securities created on assets of the company will continue to operate in favour of the lenders in the ranks assigned originally.
