However, this issue can’t be discussed in the meeting as the IDBI Bank opposed NBCC’s plan after the agency came up with a conditional offer of contingent multiple times for seeking concessions from the government agencies like Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority [YEIDA] and the income-tax department.

The IDBI bank suggested requisition of the comfort letter from another bank as the interim resolution professional, had earlier suggested a conditional offer was difficult to be accepted under Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code.
