Insolvency proceedings against Sikka Infra quashed by Law Tribunal
The action taken against the only Company of the Group i.e. Sikka Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd. has been dismissed by the NCLT.
The National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) has set aside the insolvency proceedings against Sikka Infrastructure Pvt Ltd, noting that no order was ever passed against the group and all other companies and projects except Sikka Karnam Greens under the Sikka Group remain untouched and unaffected by the issue. The insolvency case was 'disposed off' by the two judges bench at the NCLT ordering inception of the committee of creditors within 30 days of the verdict.
The two judges bench comprising Retired Chief Justice MM Kumar and Judicial Member Deepti Kumar passed the order citing, "The order dated 23.01.2019 initiating corporate insolvency resolution process against the corporate debtors is closed and naturally the order would not be given effect any further."

We would also like to thank our entire esteemed customers, lenders & vendors for their un-conditional support, trust & faith during this time period.”
