For Confused and Angry NCD/ FD Investors of DHFL, Catalyst Trusteeship Finally Explains the Resolution Plan Math
Maya M 02 October 2021
Over the past two days, confused and angry DHFL investors were flooding social media with complaints of not receiving payments as per their claims. Many complained of having received a raw deal by receiving a far lower amount (compared to what they were anticipating).
Catalyst Trusteeship, the debenture trustee for Dewan Housing Finance Ltd (DHFL)’s non-convertible debentures (NCDs), has finally shared the reasoning for the basis of repayment of DHFL retail investors which includes NCDs (secured and non-secured) and fixed deposits (FDs).
Catalyst has claimed that the settlement of claims of NCD- and FD-holders of DHFL, as per NCLT order dated 7th June, has been calculated by advisors of committee of creditors (CoC). The broad principle of settlement of claims as per the order of NCLT, as calculated by advisors of CoC is given below.
However, investors are requested to refer to the information provided through the virtual data room (VDR) - smartroom portal from time to time. Secured NCD categorisation is done on the basis of the total investment of the first NCD-holder's (PAN) in a particular series.
Based on the total investment of the NCD-holder, across different series, the following treatment is accorded as per the approved distribution mechanism:
The payments have been made by credit to bank accounts and demat accounts, as case may be. In case bank account details are not available or incorrect, they are being paid by way of demand draft and being sent to their registered address, by speed post.
A special facility has been made available on website, from where NCD / FD-holders can get their settlement details. Investors can mention permanent account number (PAN) (for NCDs)  and the customer ID (for FDs) and a one time password (OTP) will be generated and sent to the registered mobile number / email ID. Investors can check on link below:
Catalyst Trusteeship has shown very little interest and a total lack of communication throughout the IBC proceedings of DHFL, irate investors said. The same thing is also happening with respect to the DS Kulkarni Developers (DSK) case. This makes Catalyst’s claims of “enhanced speed of ease of communication in default cases of debentures” appear laughable.

Day light robbery by the corporate world in the capitalist society.
In all my family lost 33+ Lakhs of retirement funds.
Sad that this corporate HEIST has been sanctioned by the government. And the rich promoters and their children enjoying the loot.
In SREI too we have lost ... God knows what we will get.

We should take this step and also write to Prime Minister and Finance Minister, News Papers and TV channels etc. Tweet to everybody and Tag to Prime Minister, Finance Minister and supreme Court. Many people including Senior Citizens have lost their life savings, Sleepless nights with huge tension and High Blood Pressure and at times thinking to commit suicides. Though FD holders are scattered, they are connected by Facebook, Internet etc. We must have a Loud and strong agitation and Demands.

I think the latest judgement by NCLAT on a revised petition, ordered that any "recovery" made from the "fraud" money lended earlier by DHFL, would go to the NCD holders and not to PEL. I do not know whether FD holders would also get a pie from the "recovery" booty or not. As per the original Resolution Proposal submitted by PEL had pegged the value of these "fraud" lending at Re. 1 only.

DHFL settlement for parent to FD holders who are mostly individuals has not been properly dealt with.The individuals who are mostly retired should not be treated at par with companies.NCLT and CoC should give a fresh look and impart justice.

In Short Equity Holders have lowest rights they are the last in the IBC process. Hence they lose whole money DHFL depositors only got 23% and NCD holders who are secured and less than 2lakhs got principal the rest you can see in the above table 43.82% between 2-10lakhs. Everybody lost faith in the NBC companies and now the latest which is going for insolvency is SREI luckily there are no depositors and only NCD retail holders are there in SREI

There is no doubt that the claim settlement against whatever mechanism applied by NCLT, has been against the interest of the investors and may inspire other corrupt companies to put their hands off and force the investors to a raw deal. How long should the law enforcing agencies in the country and the economic watchdogs let the miscreants scot-free at the cost of the investors money? In my case, my NCDs contained cumulative interest as well, and figured in the claims liability displayed in the official site of Catalyst Trustee. The cumulative interest was duly certified by DHFL with TDS remittance to CBDT as per Form 16 issued to me. I confirmed it from 26 AS of Income Tax, and declared the same in my ITR for 2019-20 FY. I had also paid additional tax as per my slab. But I have received only a truncated Principal Amount. When both the Principal and Interest amount were part of the resolution process due from the debtor, why was there only part performance? Should we not be angry and confused for this raw deal involving a shrewd, tactical way to deceive innocent and gullible investors?

From the DHFL experience I would suggest all the Sr. Citizens, please please don't invest your hard earned fund in PRIVATE organization for better interest and you will certainly loose your money and no one inclusive of Hon'ble courts would save you to recover the money.

Absolutely. To top it DHFL ,at the time of investment carried an AAA+ rating. All are bogus. No more investment into any private companies. Because of these frauds like DHFL, other companies will suffer. But we must know that public is greedy.
Thank god ,I got back my money from India bulls. The other black sheep is the Anil Ambani's Reliance.

From silence& no response for public reaction connivance & active involvement of all agencies in disastrous decision for denying rightful claims of retail investors is clear. Now it is for the so called welfare Govt/MOF to prove their claim of safeguarding common man interest& welfare.
