Kolkata, Apr 17 (PTI) The National Company Law Tribunal today approved the resolution plan submitted by Vedanta Ltd for Electrosteel Steels Ltd.

The 270-day resolution deadline, as stipulated by the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, ends today.

The NCLT in an order said that the "resolution plan of corporate debtor Electrosteel Steels Ltd which is approved by the CoC with a voting share of 100 per cent under section 31 (1) of the Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code 2016" has been approved.

"The approved resolution plan shall come into force with immediate effect," the order said.
