The next step is the creation of committees that should be addressed by lenders. For 180 days, the committees are developing plans for the restructuring or payment of debts. This period may be extended for 90 days. If this step is not done, the debtor can be liquidated. As for assets, they are sold under the hammer.

In early June, the national reserve Bank has published the list, which included 12 companies. This gave the debtors 14 days to achieve a mutually acceptable compromise with the creditors. To successfully solve the problem was only Monnet Ispat & Energy Ltd. The company plans to declare bankruptcy, followed by restructuring.
