Ahead of the deadline on November 3, Kalrock Capital and Murari Lal Jalan’s consortium have deposited the performance security of approximately ₹150 crore.

“The selected bidder has submitted the performance security of ₹150 crore to the Resolution Professional,” sources close to the development told BusinessLine .

Under the norms of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, a bidder has to deposit this amount to bind the party in a bond. This is to ensure that the bidder doesn't withdraw its plan later. Along with this, if the winning bidder is unable to execute the proposed plan, the amount is forfeited.
