Nov 24, 2017 | 05:06 PM IST

Market This Week

The government has cracked the whip on the promoters by putting restrictions on not only willful defaulters and those involved in fraudulent transactions but also on entities that have defaulted on loan payments for more than a year and those connected to them, under “Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code”. This amendment left markets in a dilemma as it may have given promoters a back-door entry to control firm at a steep discount while banks would seek to extract most amount out of defaulted loans.
