New Delhi: Banks have no plans to carry out a second round of debt restructuring of the ailing Kingfisher Airlines which has an outstanding loan of around Rs6,419 crore, reports PTI.
“State Bank of India, leader of the consortium (of 11 lenders to Kingfisher), has stated that at present, there is no plan,” minister of state for finance Namo Narain Meena said in a written reply in Lok Sabha.
He was replying to a question on whether lenders are planning to carry out a second round of restructuring of loans to help Kingfisher.
