Shares of Anil Ambani’s ADAG (Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group) rallied in the afternoon deals on Tuesday with the share price of telecommunication company Reliance Communications (RCom) gaining nearly 20% after the latter moved to NCLAT to challenge the stay order of NCLT in connection with the settlement with Swedish telecom equipment manufacturer Ericsson. Meanwhile, shares of Reliance Naval and Engineering (RNaval) also jumped more than 17%.
“The Directors of Reliance Communications Limited and two of its subsidiaries Reliance Telecom Limited and Reliance Infratel Limited, today filed appeals before the Hon’ble National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT), New Delhi, challenging and praying to stay the order of the Hon’ble National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), Mumbai, whereby Ericsson applications had been allowed to be admitted for debt resolution under the NCLT IBC process,” RCom said in an exchange filing.
