The Group retained its overall resolution estimate at Rs 61,000 crore, representing 62 per cent of overall -- fund based and non-fund based -- debt of over Rs 99,000 crore as of October 2018.

The debt addressed till date (Rs 56,943 crore) represents over 93 per cent of the overall estimated resolution value (Rs 61,000 crore).

resolution applications filed with courts and pending approval; and balance Rs 1,331 crore of debt that has to be fully serviced across Green Entities

This overall resolution estimate of 62 per cent is double the average recovery of 31 per cent under IBC1.

"Public Interest Board formed by the Government, Immunity and Moratorium extended by court has helped IL&FS stay the course and perform better than peers under IBC. Interim Distribution has ensured payouts to all class of creditors midway during the resolution, giving them confidence on the process and progress" said IBC experts
