NCLAT to decide over NCLT order on insolvency against Coffee Day Global

An appeal has been filed before the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) challenging the NCLT order to initiate insolvency proceedings against Coffee Day Global Ltd (CDGL), which owns and operates the popular chain Cafe Coffee Day.

Malavika Hegde, the suspended Director of CDGL, has approached the Chennai bench of NCLAT against the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) order to initiate Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process (CIRP) against Coffee Day Global. The application, seeking a stay on the NCLT order, was listed for hearing before a NCLAT bench comprising Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain and Shreesha Merla on Friday. Earlier on July 20, the Bengaluru bench of the NCLT passed an order over a plea filed by IndusInd Bank, a financial creditor of the company, claiming dues of Rs 94 crore.
