NCLT Approves Hinduja Group’s Acquisition of Reliance Capital

Reviving Finances: IIHL's Resolution Marks a New Chapter for Anil Ambani's Former Giant

The National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) has granted the Hinduja Group firm IndusInd International Holdings Ltd (IIHL) the green light for its resolution plan to acquire Reliance Capital, marking a pivotal moment in the saga of the debt-laden Anil Ambani Group entity. Once a cornerstone of India’s financial landscape, Reliance Capital has been embroiled in insolvency proceedings, making this approval a significant milestone.

Facing insolvency amidst mounting debts, Reliance Capital was directed to undergo a resolution process overseen by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Amidst several interested bidders, IIHL emerged as the frontrunner to acquire the troubled company.

Hinduja Group’s Strategy

Earlier this year, IIHL proposed an acquisition bid of approximately Rs 9,650 crores for Reliance Capital. The Hinduja Group, a diversified conglomerate with a strong presence in banking and automotive sectors, aims to rejuvenate Reliance Capital within its expansive portfolio. The NCLT’s approval now sets the stage for the official transfer of Reliance Capital’s ownership to IIHL.


The approval of IIHL’s resolution plan signifies a pivotal moment for Reliance Capital and its creditors. With fresh infusion from the Hinduja Group, there is potential for Reliance Capital to stabilize its operations and explore restructuring opportunities. This development also reflects positively on the efficiency of India’s insolvency resolution mechanisms.
