Moneylife Digital Team 27 September 2022
The ministry of corporate affairs (MCA) appointed Nand Kishore as managing director (MD) of crisis-hit Infrastructure Leasing and Finance Ltd (IL&FS), while incumbent MD CS Rajan has been made non-executive chairman. After the end of the term of Uday Kotak on 2 April 2022, Mr Rajan was appointed chairman for six months. 
ICICI Bank's non-executive chairman Girish Chandra (GC) Chaturvedi also resigned from the board of IL&FS. In 2018, the Union government appointed a former officer from the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) to the board of the crisis-hit company.
Nand Kishore, a 1981 batch IAS officer, was appointed to the board of IL&FS in 2018 and was appointed executive director in December 2020. Mr Rajan, a 1978 batch IAS officer, was appointed as MD of IL&FS in April 2019. When Mr Kotak's term ended, Mr Rajan was appointed as CMD. 
The new changes are effective immediately till March 2023. IL&FS says MCA has informed it about the changes.
In the last week of March, Mr Kotak told the media that the IL&FS group had addressed a debt of about Rs55,000 crore, or 90% of its original estimate of Rs61,000 crore. The group also maintained its earlier estimate of resolving debt of Rs61,000 crore, representing a resolution of 62% of the overall—fund-based and non-fund based—debt of over Rs99,000 crore as of October 2018. 
In a release, IL&FS had said the resolution of the remaining Rs6,000 crore debt will move into FY22-23. "Of the 347 entities under IL&FS Group as of October 2018, a total of 246 entities stand resolved leaving 101 entities to be resolved in the next financial year."
IL&FS was incorporated in 1987 with the objective of promoting infrastructure projects in the country. IL&FS was promoted by the Central Bank of India (CBI), Housing Development Finance Corp Ltd (HDFC) and Unit Trust of India (now SUUTI).
