The consortium of lenders headed by SBI included IDBI Bank, Canara Bank, Andhra Bank, Corporation Bank, EXIM Bank, Punjab and Sind Bank and Union Bank of India.

In its complaint, SBI charged that IVRCL, represented by its MD and JMD, secured credit limits from the consortium of public sector banks and defaulted in payments.

They allegedly made payments to some parties through Letters of Credit ensuring the purchase transactions were not recorded in the books, as per the forensic report.

The complaint stated that the funds were routed to the company, which were then misappropriated.
