The Debt Recovery Tribunal (DRT) will on Monday pass orders on the state-owned SBI’s application seeking the lenders’ first right on the $75-million payout from Diageo to UB Group promoter Vijay Mallya under a recent sweetheart deal.
DRT had reserved its order after hearing the submissions made by both parties – bankers and Mallya – on March 4.
SBI had filed three other applications, including one seeking Mallya’s arrest and impounding of his passport, as the bank approached DRT seeking action against him for defaulting on loans.
