The Committee of Creditors (CoC) of Jaypee Infratech (JIL) will form a core group of its members, who will hold deliberations with resolution applicants — NBCC and Suraksha ARC — on various modalities of their plans and will work with both the companies to explore avenues to maximise the value of assets of the debt-laden real estate developer.
Sources in know of the development told FE that the CoC in its last meeting on March 1 decided to form a core working group, which will include authorised representative of homebuyers, IDBI Bank, LIC, SBI, IIFCL and authorised representative of FD holders.
“This group will have meetings with the resolution applicants and also assist the CoC for making modifications in the resolution plans with the intention to enhance the value of assets of JIL. A decision on the same is likely to be taken soon,” one of the sources said.

According to a note prepared by IDBI Bank, Jaypee’s largest lender, the company’s actual value stands at Rs 17,111 crore, while its distress value is pegged at Rs 14,548 crore. JIL has Rs 9,000-crore outstanding to various banks.
Another source said the CoC also requested the resolution professional, Anuj Jain, to include expenses incurred by members in finalisation of resolution plan as part of the corporate insolvency resolution process (CIRP) costs, as the endeavour is to maximise the value of assets.
Legal advisor to the RP said CIRP cost needs to be as per the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) regulations, and if it is to be part of CIRP cost and to be paid out of cash flows of JIL, then the CoC has to submit a formal request to the RP.
